Jacksonville at Oakland (-5.5)

The NFL each Sunday delivers nine hours of thrilling action-packed excitement filled with big plays and hard hits and electrifying athleticism.

And it also delivers Jaguars-Raiders.

The Jaguars battled the Chiefs in 2012 for the indignity of worst team in football. The Chiefs clearly made improvements in the off-season and dominated the Jaguars in Week 1. Jacksonville is right back at the bottom of the NFL heap by most any measure.

The Jags exit Week 1 ranked No. 30 or worse in 10 different Quality Stats. But it’s a long season. We’re confident they can make it 15 or 20 by December.

The Raiders lost in Week 1, too, but were at least competitive in a 21-17 defeat at Indianapolis.

Oakland outgained the Colts offensively 372-274 and won the Total Team yards battle 424-325. Former Ohio State star Terrelle Pryor was even fairly effective, boosting his Real Quarterback Rating to a respectable 82.8 with 112 rushing yards. If not for his two picks, the Raiders might have outgunned Andrew Luck and the Colts.

Among other colossal failings, Raiders-Jaguars pits two teams that were among the worst in situational football in 2012, according to our new Intelligence Index.

They begin the 2013 season in the same intellectually challenged fashion: Oakland No. 30 on the Intelligence Index; Jacksonville, naturally, No. 32.

Dumb teams are bad bets. But this contest pits two of the dumbest teams in football. Consider “intelligence” (or lack there of it) a wash.

On the bright side for Jacksonville, starting quarterback Blaine Gabbert is injured and will not play. Chad Henne, who relieved him Sunday, gets the nod.

This game would take a notable turn toward entertainment if Henne were to relieve himself on the field Sunday.

At the end of the day, the Raiders we know have some actual NFL-quality physical skills, as they displayed Sunday at Indy. The Jaguars have no such thing, though Henne may in fact be an upgrade at QB.

Coupled with a 3,000-mile cross country flight, it adds up to a long Sunday of arena-league quality football for Jacksonville.
