Jaguars vs. Chiefs 5 bold predictions for Divisional Round of Playoffs
2. Jaguars RB Travis Etienne will go over 100 yards, score 2 TDs vs. the Chiefs
The Jaguars struggled to get their running game going in Week 9. Trailing early in the game didn’t help matters but they probably look for ways to get sophomore Travis Etienne the ball early to force the Chiefs to stack the box.
Etienne has shown the ability to break off big runs and the Jaguars will need to get him involved to avoid a slow start. If they get the running game going, the former Clemson Tiger should reach the end zone twice, once on the ground and later through the air.
1. Trevor Lawrence will lead the Jaguars to a win and the AFC Championship
For a moment, it looked like the Jaguars were going to be one-and-done in the playoffs. Trevor Lawrence got off to a horrible start, throwing four interceptions in the first quarter. However, the second-year quarterback kept his cool and bounced back in the second half.
Lawrence ended up throwing four touchdowns and played a key role in helping Jacksonville advance to the Divisional Round of the Playoffs. The Chiefs are a better, more-discipline team than Los Angeles, so Lawrence will need to be close to flawless to have a shot at winning. He will and he will finish the game with a 2-0 record in the playoffs.
Patrick Mahomes is without a doubt the best quarterback in the NFL but Trevor Lawrence will outplay him to advance to the Conference Championship.
