FOXBOROUGH, Ma. — The Jacksonville Jaguars have landed in Providence, Rhode Island Saturday afternoon ahead of Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots.
The Jags (1-1) will kickoff against the Super Bowl Champion Patriots (2-0) on Sunday at 1 p.m. on CBS47.
The Jaguars (1-1) are tied for first place in the AFC South division with the Tennessee Titans. The Jags are looking to continue its winning ways coming off a 23-20 victory over the Miami Dolphins at EverBank Field last Sunday.
The team announced a roster move on Saturday afternoon. Linebacker LaRoy Reynolds was released and the Jags have promoted wide receiver Tony Washington from the practice squad.
The move to sign Washington is likely because WR Marqise Lee was downgraded on Saturday from probable to questionable. Lee made his 2015 debut last week and he practice most of the week too.
Earlier this week, the Jags put Rashad Greene on injured reserve with the right to come back in November because of thumb surgery.
The Jaguars defense is ranked No. 3 in the NFL in rushing yards allowed per game, giving up an average of 73.5 YPG in its first two games.
The Jaguars defense will look to stop Tom Brady and the No. 1 ranked offense for passing yards per game. The Patriots have thrown for an average of 366 YPG in its first two contests, something the Jaguars defense ranks No. 20 in the league for stopping.
The Action Sports Jax team will be live from Gillette Stadium in Foxborough with the latest on Sunday’s matchup on Countdown to Kickoff at 11:30am on CBS47.
