The Jacksonville Jaguars will travel to Oakland this Sunday to take on the Raiders in a showdown between two struggling teams.

The Jaguars have opened the season with a 1-4 start and are coming off a 41-3 loss at home versus the Chicago Bears on October 7. Blaine Gabbert is leading a Jacksonville passing attack that ranks last in the league, averaging a mere 142.8 yards a game through the air.

The Oakland Raiders are coming off a devastating last second loss to the undefeated Falcons after Atlanta kicker Matt Bryant made a 55-yard field goal as time expired to drop Oakland to 1-4 on the season.

The Raiders only win this season came against Pittsburgh, 34-31. The Raiders have lost two in a row and currently sit in third place in the AFC West, two wins behind division leaders Denver and San Diego.

Jacksonville's only win of the season also came in Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts, 22-17. The Jaguars are currently in last place in the AFC South.
