The Jacksonville Jaguars face a significant challenge on both sides of the ball when they host the Chicago Bears.

The Jacksonvile Jaguars have a tall task in Week 5, hosting the Chicago Bears and one of the most dominant defenses in the NFL. Jacksonville's offense, led by second-year quarterback Blaine Gabbert, is ranked last in the NFL in total offense.

Gabbert has only one interception so far in 2012, a total that may not last long on Sunday. The Bears' defense picked off Tony Romo five times in their Monday night victory over the Dallas Cowboys. Maurice Jones-Drew might have more success. Chicago is 16th in the league against the rush, giving up an average of just over 100 yards per game. Jones-Drew has had an inconsistent season, following up a high of 177 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3 with a low of just 38 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 4.

Jacksonville's defense faces a stiff test as well. Yielding an average of 405 yards per game, the Jaguars must find a way to shut down Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall. Standing at 1-3, Jacksonville has their work cut out for them on both sides of the ball.

Game Time: 4:05 p.m. ET
Television Coverage: FOX
Odds: Chicago favored by six points
