Jets vs. Jaguars live score, updates, highlights from NFL ‘Thursday Night Football’ game

The Jets and Jaguars make their 2022 prime-time debuts in Week 16, and the matchup comes with surprise playoff implications for both sides.

The Jets (7-7) have spent much of the season in playoff position but are no longer on solid ground after a three-game losing streak. Their hopes of snapping the NFL’s longest active playoff drought are still alive, but the path would become much narrower if they can’t get past the surging Jaguars.

Jacksonville QB Trevor Lawrence has been excellent of late, throwing 13 touchdowns and just one interception over his last five games. Lawrence has the Jaguars (6-8) in control of their fate in the AFC South; a win in East Rutherford would be a major step toward an unexpected playoff berth.

A rib injury to Mike White has Zach Wilson in line to start at for New York, meaning Lawrence will be facing the quarterback who was drafted one pick behind him in 2021. After a pair of bumpy rookie seasons, Lawrence’s trajectory is clearly pointing up while Wilson’s is pointing down as his future with the Jets comes into question.

In what is expected to be a rain-soaked game under the lights, Wilson has a chance to change the narrative for at least one night and put the Jets’ playoff hopes back on track.
