“It’s great for my relationship,” Olivia Moglino told Action News Jax with a laugh on Friday. “My fiancé is very emotionally invested. So when they’re losing, he’s sad, but right now he’s very happy. So I’m loving that.”

While the Jags keep winning, their Sunday opponent, the San Francisco 49ers, have been going the opposite direction. Since being just one of the last two undefeated teams left in the league through the first five games, the 49ers have lost three straight, now coming off a bye week with hopes of hitting the reset button at 5-3.
