The Denver Broncos and the Jacksonville Jaguars will be across the pond on Sunday as they battle at Wembley Stadium in London, England. Both teams had high expectations coming into the season, but are sitting at 2-5 respectively while riding four-game losing streaks. All signs point to Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson will be able to play here after missing last week against the New York Jets with a hamstring injury.

Denver Broncs vs. Jacksonville Jaguars Key Stats
The Denver Broncos have struggled offensively as a team this season as they are last in the NFL scoring just 14.3 points per game this season. They are ravished with injuries throughout their skill positions as running back Javonte Williams is out for the season. This offense is stagnant behind Russell Wilson's inability to find the end zone as he has five touchdowns to three interceptions this season. Courtland Sutton has been doing decently well as the top wide receiver as he has 34 receptions on 58 targets for 454 yards (13.4 yards per catch) but has just one touchdown.
The Broncos defense has been carrying their team as they are third in the league with just 16.4 points per game allowed. Their secondary makes it extremely difficult to throw on as they are second with 173.1 passing yards per game given up and a big reason is their ability to get to the quarterback as they have 22 total sacks.
The Jaguars are being led by Trevor Lawrence as he is trying to take that next step with nine touchdowns and four interceptions this season right now. Their offense is scoring 22.1 points per game and a big reason is wide receiver Christian Kirk playing well after getting a big contract in the offseason. He's averaging 7.7 targets per game and should be a huge factor to move the chains as they also give running back Travis Etienne more carries now that the team traded away James Robinson.
Denver Broncos vs. Jacksonville Jaguars Betting Prediction
Neither team has really impressed this season, but Russelll Wilson has not shown any sign of being even a mediocre quarterback this season with a 35.2 QBR so far. The Denver offense is averaging less than 12 points per game in their last three games while Jacksonviiille has scored 22 points per game in their last two games. Kicker Riley Patterson has been dominant on field goal attempts for Jacksonville while Brandon McManus is less than 80 percent on his kicks this season. Jacksonville has played in England enough to have a little bit of a home crowd there so they should feel comfortable and cover the spread.
