The Jacksonville Jaguars and LA Chargers are both hoping to get off the schnide with their first wins since Week 1. While the records indicate otherwise, the teams aren’t exactly that close in terms of talent.
The Chargers’ losses have come at the hands of the Chiefs, Panthers, Buccaneers, and Saints. Since their Week 1 win against the Colts, the Jaguars have lost to the Bengals, Dolphins, Texans, Browns, and Ravens.
The Chargers are favored to win the game by 7, which makes sense considering they are the better team. At the same time, Chargers fans have plenty of memories of the Bolts losing to teams they shouldn’t have.
Playing down to competition has been a problem for more than a while. In order to not take a bad loss here, let’s get into some of the things the Chargers have to do.
1. Get an early lead
The Chargers had pretty large leads in their losses to the Chiefs, Saints, and Buccaneers. Unfortunately, they blew the Saints and Bucs games in particular with a defense that struggled in the second halves of those games.
Quality offense has also been hard to come by in the second half. In those three losses I mentioned, the Chargers scored seven points or fewer in the second halves of each game.
Luckily for Los Angeles, they’re playing a team that’s not quite as capable in terms of playing from behind. Other than the loss to Tennessee, Jacksonville hasn’t done a lot other than score some garbage time touchdowns when they’re down.
The Jacksonville defense is also no longer “Sacksonville”. For the last two years, the Jaguars have ranked as a bottom 10 defense in the league. Tampa Bay, Kansas City, and New Orleans don’t have great defenses, but they certainly aren’t among the worst units in the league.
If the Chargers get the lead early, the Jaguars’ offense won’t be able to rally with Gardner Minshew playing hero ball.
Radhika Apte reveals real reason why she got married

The intense actress impressed with her performance of a meek girl to a mother of a grown-up and especially her reunion scene with Rajini took the audience on an emotional ride.

When asked why she got married the talented performer replied that it is easier for married people to get a British visa and that’s why she and her man opted for it in 2012.
Radhika is currently chilling with Taylor in their London home during the lockdown and will soon start filming her next English film ‘Noor Inayat Khan’ in which she plays a spy based on a true story.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today
Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.
Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
