Why the Raiders can cover

New coach Josh McDaniels, who spent the last 10 seasons as offensive coordinator in New England, comes from a Patriots franchise that emphasized the importance of winning preseason games. Over the last four years, New England went 9-2 in the preseason. Last season, the Patriots went 3-0 and outscored their opponents, 79-33.

In addition, in a game that will be dominated by second- and third-stringers, the Raiders arguably have the edge in backup quarterbacks. Vegas’ Nick Mullens outperformed C.J. Beathard, who’s now the Jaguars’ backup, when both played for the 49ers. The newly-acquired Jarrett Stidham has experience running McDaniels’ offense after playing the last three seasons with McDaniels in New England.

Why the Jaguars can cover

Linebacker Josh Allen is poised for a big season. A Pro Bowler in 2019, Allen missed half of the 2020 season with a knee injury. But he bounced back last season with a team-high 7.5 sacks. In Week 9 against the Bills, Allen helped lead the Jaguars to a 9-6 upset with eight tackles, a sack, an interception and a fumble recovery. This season, he will play under a new coordinator, Mike Caldwell, whose extensive linebacker background should help Allen thrive.

The defense also should be improved with the addition of No. 1 overall pick Travon Walker. The 6-foot-5, 272-pound defensive end has 4.5 speed and a 35 1/2-inch vertical with an enormous wingspan that will allow him to fend off blockers. Last season, he had a career-high six sacks for a loaded Georgia Bulldogs defense.
