4. The Jaguars’ offensive line won’t give up a sack vs. the Chiefs
The Jaguars’ offensive line was seen as their biggest weakness ahead of the 2022 season but the unit has done a good job of protecting Trevor Lawrence, giving up just nine sacks, the second-best figure in the league after nine weeks.
Against the Las Vegas Raiders, the Jags didn’t allow a single sack. Sure, other than Maxx Crosby, the Raiders don’t have someone who can consistently get after the quarterback but that doesn’t make Jacksonville’s offensive line any less deserving of praise.
The Chiefs have a pretty stout front seven, led by defensive lineman Chris Jones, who could give the Jaguars fits in Week 10. But once again, the offensive line will show out and dominate the line of scrimmage.
3. Jaguars WR Christian Kirk will have a 100-yard game in Week 10
The Chiefs have one of the top defenses against the run but they struggle against the pass. In fact, they rank 31st in yards and passing touchdowns allowed, and the Jaguars must exploit this matchup if they want to crack the scoreboard early.
Wide receiver Christian Kirk was off to a hot start this season, hauling in 20 receptions for 327 yards with three touchdowns. While he’s slowed down a bit since then, he’s still the Jaguars’ best receiver and someone who must get targeted often.
Offensive coordinator Press Taylor will have Kirk line up at different spots across the line of scrimmage, which will lead to mismatches and a 100-yard game.
