The Chicago Bears host the Jacksonville Jaguars in the second preseason game of the preseason. Both the Bears and the Jaguars were victorious in their preseason debuts. The Jags defense had a strong outing against Lovie Smith’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They sacked Josh McCown twice and had a pick-6 against the former Bears backup who turned a relief role into a monster free agent deal. The Jags will be an improved team, especially on defense.
It ought to be an interesting game to watch and will get the national spotlight as the only preseason game on tonight and getting the ESPN Monday Night Football treatment. Yes, that mean a lot of Gruden’s Grinders and you can bet the hyperbole will be in full effect, especially when he’s waxing poetic about every 3rd stringer playing in the 4th quarter.
Chicago Bears vs Jacksonville Jaguars
