Trevor Lawrence has the Jacksonville Jaguars (6-8) on a two-game win streak and is fresh off an upset win. They travel north to open up Week 16 and take on the New York Jets (7-7) who aren’t as certain at the quarterback position.
Both teams will be playing to further their chances of making the postseason.
Here’s a look at the betting details and USA TODAY’s NFL staff picks for the Week 16 Jaguars vs. Jets game:

Safid Deen: Jaguars 24, Jets 17
Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars are on a roll with two straight wins over playoff teams, while Zach Wilson’s run as Jets quarterback isn’t going as planned. I like Jaguars on the road, knowing they need this win over the Jets to sneak into the playoff mix.
Victoria Hernandez: Jaguars 21, Jets 10
There’s too much momentum behind Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars, even if they are playing in a cold MetLife Stadium. Zach Wilson will struggle yet again to get anything going for the Jets offense.
Jaylon Thompson: Jaguars 24, Jets 17
Trevor Lawrence is on a hot streak and it should continue against a Jets defense that has struggled in recent weeks. The connection with tight end Evan Engram is apparent with 25 targets over the last two games. Jets QB Zach Wilson is prone to turnovers that will allow the Jaguars to feast once again.
