As Jameis Winston and the Buccaneers struggle to find footing on their 2015 season, it may be a bit difficult to generate significant interest surrounding a game pitting them against the Jaguars. The contest regarded as one between the two worst teams in the league, however, should be fun to watch. Coach Lovie Smith insists that his team, and his rookie quarterback, are getting better.
The Jaguars and their own young quarterback Blake Bortles are also making strides, and are getting healthier as their star tight end Julius Thomas may finally make his debut with the team.
