The Falcons have an important football game to play tomorrow. Get this: if they win, they’ll be 6-9 and won’t get to play any post-season football. Huzzah! To be frank, these are two teams that leave a lot to be desired. Setting draft position aside, it’d be nice to see the Falcons finish this season strong. Given that they’re heavily favored, they should be able to put another notch in the win column. But remember, these are the Falcons, so anything can happen.
Let’s take a quick look at the series history before tomorrow’s matchup gets underway.
There isn’t much of a series history to discuss, to be frank. Remember, the Jaguars play in a different conference. What’s more, their inaugural season came in 1995. These teams have only played one another 6 times; and right now the series is deadlocked at 3-3. For what it’s worth, the Falcons have won 3 of their last 4 matchups.
These teams first played on December 22, 1996. The Jaguars won that game, 19-17. The Jaguars were 3-12 headed into that game, the final game of their sophomore season.
These teams last played on December 20, 2015. The Falcons won that game, 23-17. Julio Jones racked up 119 receiving yards in that game, scoring once. Kemal Ishmael picked off Blake Bortles and returned the interception 84 yards.
