The latest NFL action comes from the east coast where two teams in the hunt for a play-off spot meet at the MetLife Stadium with the New York Jets hosting the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Jets currently lie ninth in the AFC standings with a 7-7 record while the Jaguars are a place behind on 6-8.

With the play-off race really starting to heat up over the Christmas period, it is imperative for both teams that they try and get a positive result in this contest.

Team news

The Jets are again set to be without cornerback Brandin Echols, who sat out their last game against the Detroit Lions with a quadriceps injury.

Quinnen Williams and Lamarcus Joyner also missed the Detroit clash because of hip and calf problems respectively and the duo are facing a race against time to be fit for this one.

Jacksonville were rocked by an injury to offensive tackle Cam Robinson in the victory against Dallas Cowboys with the franchise player suffering a meniscus tear. He will be out for the remainder of the season with Walker Little expected to replace him.

Brandon Scherff has an abdomen problem and is set to miss out, while Travon Walker has not trained since spraining his ankle two weeks ago.

Jacksonville Jaguars to win by 7-12 points inclusive @ 5/1

The Jags arrive into this game on the back of a good period of form where they have won three of their last four games since their bye in week 11.

It has been a major improvement for them since the start of the season when they lost seven of their opening 10 and now a play-off place is a genuine possibility.

The Jags have shown real capability when it comes to scoring with a 40-34 win against the Cowboys last time out, while they also triumphed 36-22 against the Titans.

New York’s form has dissipated at the wrong time of the season, losing each of their last three games, and that losing run could be extended to four.

Trevor Lawrence to throw 2+ touchdown passes #PickYourPunt @ EVS

Quarterback Trevor Lawrence has impressed recently and threw four touchdown passes against the Cowboys last time out.

He showed great character, bouncing from throwing an interception and losing a fumble in the fourth quarter to ultimately be the match-winner.

His ability with the ball should be able to exploit a frail Jets outfit.
