The Atlanta Falcons take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 15. Here’s how the two teams stack up.

The Atlanta Falcons look to snap their six-game losing streak this week on their final road game of the season against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Don’t be fooled though, this Jaguars team is much better than it’s been in recent years.

The Jaguars put up 51 points against the Colts last week to pull themselves within a game of the division lead. With three games left in the season, Jacksonville looks to win its first ever AFC South title. To do so, they will need to take care of business against a struggling Falcons team.

For Dan Quinn’s Falcons, ending the season strong has to be the top priority. The team has now lost seven of its past eight games, despite starting the season 5-0. The free fall has to end at some point, and while any remaining playoff hopes were dashed in the loss to the Panthers, a win in this game would help establish some pride before the end of the year.

How do these two teams stack up? Let’s break down both teams, looking at the strengths and weaknesses of each club. Here is the tale of the tape.
