Winning AFC South would put the Jacksonville Jaguars on the map
The Jacksonville Jaguars are somewhat looked at as a bottom-tier NFL team in terms of on-field performance. They just haven’t done a lot of winning but that tide might be turning for the first time in a long time.
Of course, we knew things might eventually change after drafting Trevor Lawrence as the first overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Coming out of Clemson, he was projected to be a superstar in the NFL like some of the greats that came before him.
The first year of the Lawrence era was tough as they went just 3-14. There was a lot of growth needed from him in addition to the rest of the team that surrounded him. With a big off-season and a bit of development, he has helped them turn things around in 2022.
It wasn’t easy though. This team started 2-6 and looked to be on the path of yet another miserable season. Since then, however, they have gone 6-2 and now sit at 8-8 with a week left to go in the season.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have the biggest game of the season on Saturday.
They come into Saturday night’s big game with a chance to win the AFC South on the line. They play the 7-9 Tennessee Titans in a winner take all match. There are some other scenarios that they can make it as well but they would need a lot of help. Win and in for Jacksonville.
A comeback in the division like this would really put them on the map in terms of the entire viewing of the NFL. Being one of the eight-division title winners is a big deal in this league as you are guaranteed a home playoff game. It would be extra special because of the circumstances.
Since week nine, Trevor Lawrence has been the best quarterback in the NFL. Having an elite guy like that under center is also a way to get your team on the map as well. This team is no joke and will be hanging around for a long time.
The Tennessee Titans have been good for a few years now but are not looking good in the long term anymore. The Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans might have an even harder road to the top now which makes it a great time for the Jaguars.
Hopefully, they are able to find this win and go into the playoffs with everybody excited about them. The AFC South Division Champion Jacksonville Jaguars certainly has a nice ring to it.
