Walking into a situation that will likely add fuel to their burning dumpster fire, the Jacksonville Jaguars are going to need a miracle to keep up with the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are in a very public tailspin right now, with fans, players, and front office figures all lashing out to one another on social media. It’s indicative of just how bad things have become in a season that was once full of hope.

It’s barely November, but we’re already at the point where a Jaguars loss is expected and effectively inevitable every Sunday. That’s especially true this week, with the Jaguars traveling to Kansas City to take on a Chiefs squad that hasn’t lost at home in 9 straight tries. Yikes.
1. Despite Alex Smith being sidelined for most of the game, the Chiefs managed to handle a mediocre Indianapolis Colts squad last week. Did the offense take a big step back with Nick Foles?
"A lot of Chiefs fans will tell you the offense actually got better. I don’t necessarily buy that, but it was different. Nick Foles added a new wrinkle with his efficiency in the deep passing game. The Colts certainly weren’t prepared for it. I don’t know if that element of the offense would be consistent from week to week with Foles though. Ultimately though, the Chiefs showed that they have some real depth on their offense and are capable of attacking their opponents."
The Chiefs had absolutely no problem disposing of the Colts last week with a backup quarterback and a backup running back, so it would be shocking if they didn’t take care of business this week. The Jaguars have shown the ability to lose to Nick Foles before as well – they blew a 17-0 halftime lead in 2014 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
