Seven games into the 2015 NFL regular season, the Jacksonville Jaguars sit at 2-5 but only one game back of the AFC South lead. If you had told me the latter would be true at the beginning of the season, I would have been thrilled. The fact preceding it (the 2-5 record) isn’t nearly as encouraging, but nonetheless there is still hope for the season.

Still, everything needs to be analyzed in context and it’s hard not to be disappointed in where the Jaguars currently sit in the win-loss column. At the very least, the Jaguars should be 3-4 (Jason Myers making 1 of 2 game-winning field goals against the Indianapolis Colts) or even 4-3 (if the Jaguars held on to one of two late second half leads against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or the Houston Texans). The Jaguars are likely done with the “easy” stretch of their schedule and now have to persevere against more accomplished teams moving forward to try and stay in the playoff hunt.

So can the Jaguars do it? Can they finally claw their way back to relevance and play meaningful games in December? See what I think with my rock solid bye week predictions:
