The Jaguars just missed a win last week, losing 16-15 to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Falcons, on the other hand, edged the Detroit Lions in Week 1 but lost to the New York Jets in Week 2.

Jaguars vs Falcons Prediction & Pick
After losing their first two preseason games by double digits, the Jaguars nearly came away with a win last week against the Steelers. They ultimately fell short, but at least they proved they can be competitive.
The Falcons have benefited from an easy schedule thus far, as the Lions and Jets were two of the worst teams in the NFL last year. Atlanta still managed to lose against New York, however, so Jacksonville should have a fighting chance here.
Final Score Prediction: Jaguars: 17 | Falcons: 20

Jacksonville is the only 0-3 team at the moment and has been outscored 67-39, so it's tough to have much faith in the Jaguars right now. Their offense has yet to score more than 15 points in a game, and their defense isn't good enough to win games by itself.
That said, they're coming off their best game of the preseason and are playing a Falcons team that isn't much better than them on paper. Desmond Ridder has played well for Atlanta, but Jacksonville has its own talented young quarterback in Trevor Lawrence.
The Jaguars may not win, but they should be able to keep this game close enough to cover the spread.
