W-L 2-11 5-8
Avg Points 16.6 18.5
Avg Points Allowed 27.6 21.2

Jacksonville (2-11)  is tied for the worst record in the NFL. They rank 31st in total offense and defense, averaging 282.9 yards and allowing 394.5 per game. The Jaguars, who’ve surrendered 77 points in their last two road games, haven’t lost five straight in opposing stadiums since going 0-8 in 2003.

The Jaguars figure to give Montell Owens a heavy workload after he gained 91 yards on 14 carries against the New York Jets last week. With mixed results so far Chad Henne is still trying to prove he is a starting quarterback in the NFL, he will return to Miami with a chance to do that on Sunday. His status for 2013 is still unknown as the Jaguars have stated they were open to him starting in 2013.

Things have not gone well in Miami either. The Dolphins (5-8) have lost five of their last six while being outscored by an average of 10 points. At one point this season the Dolphins appeared to be a contender for an AFC Wild Card spot, now they are on their way to missing the playoffs for the tenth time in eleven years.

While Reggie Bush has been a breath of fresh air for the Dolphins offense the key in this one will likely be quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Tannehill struggled against San Francisco last week completing 17 of 33 passes for 150 yards and a touchdown last week. Cameron Wake tied his career high with his 14th sack last week. He faces an offensive line who has given up 40 sacks this season, fourth most in the NFL.

Will Chad Henne lead Jacksonville to their third win and out of the NFL gutter? Will Cameron Wake and the Dolphins defense pressure the Jaguars backfield?
