3) Trevor Lawrence must help the Jacksonville Jaguars win a few more games.

Trevor Lawrence expects to win but so does every NFL player and nobody goes into a game hoping they will lose. While it’s unlikely that the Jags will win just one game in 2021, the team needs to set the bar at a reasonable level, and ‘not losing 15 consecutive games’ is the bare minimum, so how many games should Jacksonville expect to win with the Tennessee native at the helm?

Keep in mind that football is a team sport and winning and losing go beyond what a quarterback does on the field. On the other hand, signal-callers have the biggest impact on the outcome of a game, so it’s not surprising to see every team in the league always looking for a great one. The Jags have one and they surely hope they become perennial playoff contenders down the road, but what about his rookie year?

This Jacksonville team has had just one winning season in the last 13 years, so asking them to buck the trend in 2021 may be difficult. Also, winning three or four games may be setting the bar too low.

The Jaguars are building around Lawrence, they have a talented wide receiver corps, a crowded running back room and their defense should be significantly better than it was last season when it ranked near the bottom of the league. Looking at the level of talent the Jaguars currently have, expecting Lawrence to help them win eight games isn’t far-fetched.
