Florida Times-Union picks NFL Week 15

Will the real Jacksonville Jaguars please stand up?

This team is harder to figure out than a Rubik’s Cube.

Is this the team that dominated the Tennessee Titans 36-22 last week? Or the team that looked dismal in being dismantled by Detroit two weeks ago.

Perhaps it’s the team that mounted an amazing comeback against the Baltimore Ravens a week prior to the Detroit debacle. Or maybe the squad that looked flat against the Kansas City Chiefs the game before that.

Over the past six games, the Jaguars have alternated wins and losses in going 3-3.

If you follow the pattern, then you’d have to take the Dallas Cowboys to win this weekend’s game in Jacksonville.

I feel like Vizzini in “The Princess Bride”: “I’m not a great fool, so I can clearly not choose the (team) in front of you. But you must have known I was not a great fool; you would have counted on it, so I can clearly not choose the (team) in front of me.”

So, which do I choose?

Luckily, if I’m wrong, I won’t wind up with the same fate as Vizzini. Still, though, it’s a tough choice to make, especially when you’re clinging to a one-game lead the way I am.

Let’s look at some factors and see if it helps make a decision.

This will be only the second time the Cowboys will play in Jacksonville. In their only visit to the First Coast in 2006, Dallas lost 24-17.
