Jaguars vs. Packers 2012 odds: Jacksonville 16-point underdog, largest in team history

Sam Greenwood

The Jaguars are riding a three-game losing streak.

After opening the week as a 12.5-point underdog, the Jacksonville Jaguars now face a 16-point spread against the Green Bay Packers, according to various oddsmakers on OddsShark.com.

The 16-point spread is the largest the Jaguars have faced since joining the NFL in 1995.

Jacksonville (1-5) heads into Sunday's game riding a three-game losing streak, having fell to the Oakland Raiders, the Chicago Bears and the Cincinnati Bengals in back-to-back-to-back weeks. The Jaguars have struggled on both offense and defense this season and rank last in the NFL in passing yards per game (144.8) and 29th in rushing yards allowed per game (147.3). Arguably the team's lone bright spot this season, running back Maurice Jones-Drew, likely won't play this weekend as he deals with a sprained left foot.

Green Bay (4-3) has bounced back from a slow start to the season in recent weeks. The Packers offense, led by quarterback Aaron Rodgers, has found life in the past two games, scoring 30-plus points against the St. Louis Rams and the Houston Texans. The Packers are looking for their third straight win this weekend against Jacksonville.
