The Jaguars of Jacksonville will be looking to devour some Ravens when they journey to Baltimore for a 2012 preseason matchup Thursday night. The first boot of the ball is scheduled for 7:30ET in M&T Bank Stadium.
Jacksonville (2-0) has not missed a beat during RB Maurice Jones-Drew’s holdout which continues into week 3 of the 2012 exhibition schedule. Look for backup RB Rashad Jennings to get most of the rushing carries early in this one as he did during the Jags 27-24 win over New Orleans last week .

WR Justin Blackmon will start his second straight pro contest as well. QB Blaine Gabbert should be throwing more passes his way on Thursday. The Jaguars “O” line will be depleted on the left side with both it’s tackle and guard out due to injury. Key pieces will also be missing from the defense with 4 regulars out, including both OLB’s, Daryl Smith and Clint Session.
Baltimore (1-1) experienced an unusually poor defensive performance in a 27-12 loss to the Lions last week. Detroit amassed 507 total yards on offense which included 341 by air. Joe Flacco should have fleet WR Torrey Smith to throw to, after missing last week. Terrel Suggs remains among the missing on “D” with an Achilles tear.
