4 reasons the Oakland Raiders beat the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 15

Jaguars pass defense
If there were ever a time for Derek Carr and the Raiders receivers to prove themselves, this is the time. The Jaguars defense is coming off a week where they allowed four passing touchdowns to the Chargers, an offense who has struggled all season.
The once impressive Jaguars defense is no more, as the Raiders receivers should be able to get open and create opportunities for Carr in the passing game. If any Raiders fans reading this need a sense of hope, one of the Jaguars corners that will be going up against us is former Raiders DJ Hayden.
On Wednesday, Hayden spoke about the Raiders not wanting him back, and how he was going to do everything in his power to get a win on Sunday. Based on what we saw from DJ during his time in the Silver and Black, that is certainly a defensive back Carr should target early and often this weekend.
