Kmet has never had more than seven targets, five catches and 45 yards in a single game this year. But Kmet also played every single snap last week against the Minnesota Vikings, underscoring Matt Nagy's trust - finally - in the rookie from Notre Dame. I like the idea of Kmet catching a swing pass and taking it 30 yards against a truly terrible Jaguars defense, setting the tone for a career day.


Jaguars coach Doug Marrone wouldn't name a starting quarterback for Sunday's game, surely leading to some sleepless nights for Chuck Pagano. Who hasn't tossed and turned at 3 a.m. worrying about Mike Glennon? Anyways, it'll either be Glennon or Gardner Minshew starting for the Jaguars after a "competition" in practice this week, despite Jacksonville only holding two practices. This is an iconic commitment to tanking, and while Minshew probably will (and definitely should) start, I'll say Glennon takes some snaps and finds Laviska Shenault for a touchdown...but also throws a pick-six to Roquan Smith. 


The Jaguars suck. A lot! I know it's trendy to thread a bunch of over-worded tweets about how the Bears have only played bad defenses in this win streak, but guess what? The Jaguars defense is bad! Perhaps even the worst. The Bears beat the Texans by 29 points a few weeks ago, and they'll beat Jacksonville by 30 on Sunday. 


I have been trying to will this into existence all year, so why stop now? Jackson's year has been one to forget, but he was *this* close to breaking one or two off through the first half of the season. The Jaguars rank 7th league-wide in terms of passing attempts (537) and 4th in terms of INTs (14), so his chances will be there – especially if James Robinson doesn't play. Jackson's been pressing all year, and on Sunday it'll finally pay off.
