With the fate of the coaching staff and front office still up in the air, the Jacksonville Jaguars take on the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday afternoon.
In his third full season here in Jacksonville as the frontman of this organization, the Jaguars have five wins, the same amount as last season and half the amount of the team’s 2017 regular-season total. As he talked with the media on Tuesday, it was a sobering discussion about the unknown and a heartfelt apology for what he believes was not his best effort with the players, the coaching staff and the front office.

The discussion of Marrone’s fate has been one that has spanned all 17 weeks of the NFL season. A team that is full of turmoil and an organization in disarray for various reasons. Now, as he discussed with the media, he and his players walk back onto the field at TIAA Bank Field for one final act and a chance to walk away from the 2019 season with something positive to talk about.
Do I think one game will decide Marrone’s future here in Jacksonville? No, I believe that has already been determined by team owner Shad Khan, one way or another. What I do think is there is a strong possibility, despite what Marrone believes to be a poor effort on his part this season, there will not be a change at the coaching position here with the Jaguars for at least one more season.
If the Jaguars are going to make amends for a 33-13 loss to their AFC South rivals in Week 11, these three things could happen. Here are three bold predictions for Sunday’s game.
