When the Los Angeles Chargers visit the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, it will not be a battle with high stakes for the playoff race. The loser of this game is officially eliminated from the postseason; the winner could be eliminated too depending on results elsewhere.
But there's always something to play for in the NFL, and every game matters in some way. The Chargers will be playing to salvage their season and possibly head coach Anthony Lynn's job. The Jaguars will be trying to figure out if Gardner Minshew should be their quarterback of the future.
