JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Mike Glennon will start at quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars against the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

Coach Doug Marrone had Glennon and Gardner Minshew split first-team reps throughout the week before deciding to go with the eight-year veteran to try to snap a franchise-record 13-game losing streak.

Glennon has completed 61% of his passes for 600 yards and three touchdowns with three interceptions in losses to Cleveland, Minnesota and Tennessee. Marrone benched Glennon in the third quarter of the Jaguars’ 31-10 loss to Tennessee, and Minshew finished the game and started last week’s loss at Baltimore.
