Location: MetLife Stadium
Time/Watch: 1pm ET/FOX
Matchup to watch: Jalen Ramsey vs. Odell Beckham Jr.
This is probably one of the biggest CB/WR matchups of the entire NFL season. Watch for Ramsey to shadow Beckham in what’s setting up to be a fiery battle between the two. Besides the physical play expected, also expect a lot of talk between the two. A few seasons ago, we saw Beckham lose his cool against then Carolina Panthers cornerback Josh Norman after a lot of talking. Jalen Ramsey is probably twice as worse than Norman so we can only hope this matchup stays clean and no injuries or major penalties occur. Ramsey is apparently ready for this matchup and he is looking to put on a show.
It’s going to be a show very soon #BatmanVsTheJoker

Sleeper player to watch: Dede Westbrook
Dede Westbrook shouldn’t be considered a sleeper. However, with the rise of rookie D.J. Chark in this offense, along with the return of Keelan Cole and the additions of WR Donte Moncrief and TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, it can be easy to forget the former Biletnikoff award winner (college football’s best wide receiver). Westbrook has quietly enjoyed a great camp and could be in line for a big season. It could all start this week against the Giants. Expect a solid game from the second year wideout as the Giants secondary focuses on Cole and the Jaguars running backs.
Prediction: Jaguars 24 Giants 10
