The high-powered San Francisco 49ers are heading to London looking to extend a growing win streak. Their opponent has a much more modest goal.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are hoping a change of continents will help them avoid dropping to 0-8, as they’ll look to deny the 49ers a fifth straight victory Sunday at Wembley Stadium.
San Francisco (5-2) has topped 30 points in each of its four consecutive wins and wasn’t seriously threatened after jumping out to a 24-0 third-quarter lead at Tennessee in a 31-17 victory last Sunday.
Colin Kaepernick and Frank Gore combined for 138 yards and three touchdowns on the ground against the Titans. San Francisco, third in the league with 143.3 rushing yards per game, will now try to keep rolling against one of the league’s worst defenses.
The Jaguars rank last in the NFL with 31.7 points and 153.3 rushing yards allowed per game. No other team is giving up more than 128.0 yards a game on the ground.
Jacksonville is also 28th in total yards allowed at 391.4, and let an opponent top 400 for the fourth time in five games in last Sunday’s 24-6 loss to San Diego.
The 49ers are riding their longest win streak since an eight-game run Sept. 25-Nov. 20, 2011.
In contrast, the Jaguars are off to the worst start in team history and coach Gus Bradley was critical of last week’s effort.
