How will the Jacksonville Jaguars schedule play out? Does this roster have another playoff run in it? We look at the 2019 schedule in quarters, predicting the team’s record. Here is a look at the final four games of the season.
The Jaguars need to play well in the fourth quarter of the 2019 season to have any hope of returning to the postseason. They start at home for the second straight week, hosting the Chargers before back-to-road games against the Raiders and Falcons before finishing the quarter at home where they will welcome the Colts.
With three conference games and finishing up at home against a division foe, this quarter will decide the Jaguars’ season. How will they do? Here’s how I see it.
Week 14 vs. Los Angeles Chargers: A home game to start the fourth quarter gives the Jaguars a chance to strengthen their chance at the playoffs. They get some luck getting the Chargers at home again, but you can expect Phillip Rivers will have his team fighting for a playoff spot also. These two teams play each other tough and the Chargers are no pushover.
However, the Jaguars will have the home crowd believing and the team will be amped up. Jacksonville does enough to hold back the Chargers offense to get the win. Jaguars record: 8-5.

Week 15 at Oakland: The fourteenth game is on the road at Oakland. This will be the Raiders last season on the coast before they head to Sin City and this will be their last game at home. The Jaguars are the more talented team and should be able to handle the Raiders. But Jacksonville’s record on the West coast is horrendous and the Raiders fan base will fill the stadium for the last game.
That will give Oakland all the motivation they need. The Raiders get the win. Jaguars record: 8-6.
Week 16 at Atlanta: Atlanta will probably be in a fight for a playoff spot and division title…but so will Jacksonville. This game has all the earmarks to be an instant classic. With a premier QB in Matt Ryan and two top wide receivers in Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu, the Falcons offense will be a challenge for Jacksonville.
They won’t be able to shut them down, but the Jaguars defense will hold the Falcons enough to make it close. Jacksonville wins with a late field goal by Josh Lambo. Jaguars record: 9-6.
Week 17 vs. Indianapolis: Jacksonville finishes the season at home against the Colts. This one could be for the division and it will most certainly be for a playoff spot and position. Both teams need this one and the defenses will be on display. The team’s defense will rise to the occasion and keep the team in the game.
It will be close, but Jacksonville wins. Jaguars record: 10-6.
At 10-6 Jacksonville probably wins the division but it will be close. It’s possible that all four AFC South teams could finish the season at .500 or better and all be fighting for the division and playoff spots up to the final two weeks of the season. Here’s hoping that it falls out as I predict, and the Jaguars are AFC South Champs again.
Come back after the season when I predict how they’ll do in the playoffs.
