JACKSONVILLE, Florida (Ticker) -- This was supposed to be the season the Baltimore Ravens were going to find out if Kyle Boller was the player who deserved to be a first-round pick in 2003.

On Sunday, Boller returns as the club's starting quarterback when the Ravens visit the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Selected 19th overall out of California, Boller struggled in his first two campaigns, throwing for 20 touchdowns and 20 interceptions. His 2005 season got off to rough start when he suffered a hyperextended right big toe in the opener against Indianapolis, forcing him to miss the next seven games.

Boller returns looking to give a lift to an offense that is ranked last in the NFL in scoring at 12.1 points per game.

Anthony Wright, who threw for six touchdowns and nine interceptions, has been starting for the disappointing Ravens, who are in last place in the AFC North.

For the fourth time in eight games, the Ravens were held to 10 points or fewer in last week's 21-9 loss to Cincinnati.

The Ravens are 0-4 on the road and have lost seven straight overall away from home, dating to last season.

Baltimore will be hoping to have a pair of Pro Bowlers back on defense. Strong safety Ed Reed has missed the last three games with a high ankle sprain and middle linebacker Ray Lewis has been sidelined the past two contests with a hamstring injury.

This game continues the favorable schedule for the Jaguars, who likely will not face a team with a winning record until hosting Indianapolis on December 11. Their next three games are on the road against Tennessee, Arizona and Cleveland, which have combined for a 7-18 record.

Last week, the Jaguars struggled in a 21-14 victory over the Houston Texans, who are tied with Green Bay for the NFL's worst record.

Against the Texans, Byron Leftwich ran for the game-tying touchdown in the fourth quarter before engineering a late drive that led to Greg Jones' go-ahead score.

The Jaguars hope to have running back Fred Taylor available after he left last week's game in the third quarter with a sprained right ankle.

Matchup to watch: Jaguars wide receiver Jimmy Smith against right cornerback Samari Rolle.

Series: Jacksonville leads, 8-6, but Baltimore has won the last six meetings.

Next week: Baltimore hosts Pittsburgh, November 20 Jacksonville visits Tennessee, November 20
