JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars hope to build on momentum from the last several weeks to end the 6-game slide with a win against the San Diego Chargers Sunday.
Despite the losses, the offense has been moving the ball better, thanks in part to the return of Justin Blackmon.
He had an NFL best 19 catches and 326 yards in the last two games.
The offense has scored more than 19 points a game with Blackmon on the field, compared to just 7 points a game during his four-game suspension.
"Justin seemed to get one-on-one matchups and doing a lot of good things for us," said Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne.

The new father says he's found a comfort zone with the second-year receiver out of Oklahoma State.
"It's all due to practice, getting a feel for him. He knows where I'm going to put the ball and I have a good feeling of how he runs the routes," said Henne.
"It's just Chad's been doing a good job being in there, making good decisions with the ball and putting it in good spots," said Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon.
The offensive line is also giving the quarterback time to throw the ball. It's given up 14 sacks in the first three games of the season and only 8 in the last three.
"They've been helping keeping guys off Chad or Blaine," said Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew.
Despite the signs of growth on offense, the Jaguars know they must win.
"We need more touchdowns than field goals," said Henne.
Jaguars center Brad Meester will play in his 200th game for the Jaguars Sunday.
"It's hard to believe it's gone by quickly in all honesty," said Meester. "Seemed like it'd be a long time but it's amazing how time flies and I guess it's finally here. Meester holds franchise records for games played (199) and games started (199) in his 14 years with the team.
The Chargers (3-3) lead the overall series against the Jaguars (0-6) with three wins and two losses.
Notes: The Jaguars rank third in the NFL with only one fumble lost.
