LONDON – Every Friday during the 2017 NFL regular season, Jaguars public relations assistant Gaby Moran will bring the five best facts to know about the Jaguars heading into the game on Sunday:
1.London Calling: The Jaguars will play their fifth game in Wembley Stadium on Sunday and are entering the 2017 International Series matchup with Baltimore on a two-game winning streak.

2.Rockin' Rookie: Rookie running back Leonard Fournette has rushed 40 times for 140 yards and two touchdowns in his first two games, the most by a Jaguars rookie through two career games. Fournette is also one of three rookies ranked in the top five in rushing yards in the NFL through Week 2.
