2. The Jaguars 2023 schedule favors Trevor Lawrence to put up huge numbers

The Jaguars' 2023 schedule is the second reason Lawrence will be elevated to the upper echelon of NFL quarterbacks in 2023. The third-year pro excels in big-game matchups against premier opposing quarterbacks.

Lawrence's best games last season were against Lamar Jackson, Dak Prescot, Derek Carr, and Justin Herbert. Despite being the underdog in every one of those games, he won all four games and bested Herbert a second time in the playoffs. The former Clemson Tiger threw for 1136 yards and 11 touchdowns in those four big-time games.

Lawrence will face all the big top-tier passers this year in advantageous situations. He will be at home when the Jags face Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals, the Baltimore Ravens with Lamar Jackson, and whoever starts behind center for the San Francisco 49ers in 2023.

In the away game against Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills, the Jaguars will play in their second home, Wembley Stadium, London. The Jags will play back-to-back games in their home away from home as away games, giving them ten home games this year.

Add in that 10 of Jaguar's games will come against AFC and NFC South opponents, all expected to finish the season sub .500. Simply, the schedule is set for Lawrence to excel in big-time matchups that will escalate to shoot-outs, played in his house, with home-field advantage and a run of lackluster opponents to pad his stats on.

Lawrence will pick up at least two upset wins in those highlighted matchups. It couldn't be any more ideal for Lawrence. Reasonable expectations are 13-4 this season which will add to his MVP credentials in 2023.
