Patriots vs. Jaguars: Game time, TV schedule, injury updates and more

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Jacksonville is trying to pick up its first victory of December and also put an end to a three-game losing streak.

The Jacksonville Jaguars hope to end a three-game losing streak when they host the New England Patriots on Sunday afternoon. At 2-12, Jacksonville has no playoff berth to play for, while the Patriots have already secured the AFC East crown.

The Jaguars lost 24-3 to Miami last weekend, and they have scored a combined 13 points over their last two games. They rank 31st in the NFL in total offense and they're averaging just 15.6 points per game.

New England lost to San Francisco last week, but prior to that it won seven games in a row. Offense has not been an issue for the Patriots this season, as they lead the NFL in total yardage and scoring.

But the Patriots do have several key offensive contributors banged up. Wes Welker, Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez are among the players listed as questionable on the team's injury report. Maurice Jones-Drew is out again for Jacksonville, as is Rashad Jennings.

Game time: 1 p.m. ET

TV: CBS

Odds: New England is favored by 14.5 to 15.5 points, depending on the source.
