The NFL is going overseas, where the Jaguars and Ravens will face off in London. The Jacksonville Jaguars are looking to bounce back on Sunday when they take on the Baltimore Ravens. The Jaguars are currently 1-1, while the Ravens are 2-0. These two teams also played last year when the Jaguars lost 19-17 to the Ravens. While the Jaguars are getting ready for the challenge, the Ravens are looking to beat the Jaguars once again.
Every week, protecting the football is most important.

Impact of Allen Robinson Injury
In case you missed it, Allen Robinson suffered an ACL injury in his left knee during the season opener against the Houston Texans. The Jaguars ended up winning that game 29-7, but had to face the ramifications of Robinson’s injury this season. The Jaguars faced the realization that Robinson’s injury could impact the rest of this season when they lost 37-16 against the Tennessee Titans. Head coach, Doug Marrone, says that the loss of Robinson will not influence creativity, but it will impact the match-ups on the field and, ultimately, force a change.

Jacksonville isn’t the only team suffering after losing an influential member of their team. Recently, due to a calf injury, Ravens running back Terrance West was absent from practice in preparing for this upcoming game against the Jaguars. Despite West’s calf injury, the Ravens have a reputation for being aggressive on the field. According to Coach Marrone, the Ravens continue to play with the same intensity since 2000 and he knows what to expect. Marrone believes that the Jaguars are ready for a challenge against a team that has a reputation for being physical and aggressive.
These two teams will meet at Wembley Stadium in London. Kick off will be this Sunday, September 24th, at 9:30 AM EST.
