Jaguars schedule prediction, Weeks 6 to 8:
Week 6 @ Indianapolis Colts: 33-20 Win
Here comes what could be considered the first surprise and upset of the Jaguars’ season. Jacksonville has had no trouble taking care of Indy at home but it’s been a whole different deal at Lucas Oil Stadium.
This will be the first time the Jags sweep a division rival since 2017, which coincidentally was the Colts. Indy will finish the 2022 season with a better overall record and will most likely qualify for the playoffs due to the presence of Matt Ryan and Jonathan Taylor but they’ll have to carry the stigma of having lost to Jacksonville twice.
Week 7 vs. New York Giants: 24-23 Win
Just when you thought you had seen enough, the Jaguars once again win two straight games. This time though, it will be against the Giants. After years of minimal results and leaving the roster in pretty bad shape (sound familiar?), the G-Men pulled the plug on general manager Dave Gettleman and hired Joe Schoen to take his place.
Schoen quickly got to action and poached Brian Daboll from the Buffalo Bills to be the Giants’ coach. Big Blue had one of the best hauls in this year’s draft, selecting offensive tackle Evan Neal and edge rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux. The Jaguars could have taken either player at No. 1 but chose Travon Walker instead. Watch Walker make a couple of big plays and help Jacksonville earn their fifth win of the year.
Week 8 vs. Denver Broncos: 17-30 Loss
This is technically a home game but it isn’t when you realize that Wembley Stadium is nowhere near Jacksonville or the United States. Last year, a key stop by Chapelle Russell and Josh Allen and a last-minute field goal by Matthew Wright at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium helped the Jaguars earn their much-needed first victory.
This year, the Jags won’t be so lucky and they will fall to the Broncos. Led by Russell Wilson, Denver’s offense will prove to be too much for Jacksonville’s revamped cornerback room.
