Which games on the Jacksonville Jaguars schedule stand out as the best and worst of 2020?
I’ll admit, picking the three best and three worst games on the Jacksonville Jaguars schedule is very subjective. Every Jaguars fan probably has other teams they want to see their favorite football team play, and they all have their own reasons.
The NFL scheduling committee did the Jaguars no favors with a schedule that is backloaded with tough games. The AFC South could be an improved division this season despite some teams that have key losses on their roster like Houston without DeAndre Hopkins and the Jaguars without Calais Campbell and A.J. Bouye.
Even if the Jaguars are able to remain competitive in their division – where a case can be made that all three of their opponents should be playoff contenders this year – it will hard to run through both the NFC North and the AFC North without losing multiple games.
The Jacksonville Jaguars will face several teams in 2020 that will have a different quarterback under center than the one who took snaps last season. Three of those teams – Miami, Cincinnati and the Los Angeles Chargers, could begin the year asking a rookie to lead them to victory.
If the Jaguars and head coach Doug Marrone want to make a statement, they must win the games they “should” win on this schedule or there is no hope of stepping out of the basement of their division.
I predicted that the Jacksonville Jaguars record would be 3-13. I’ve picked them to win against the Dolphins and Bengals, but I’m having a hard time finding another win. Let’s go with week 17 at Indianapolis – if the Colts have already wrapped up a playoff spot and sit their starters. If not? 2-14 and the number one overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft.
I know, that doesn’t look real promising. Here are the games this season I want to see and ones that I think are going to be hard to watch.
