Game-by-Game predictions for the Jacksonville Jaguars 2023 schedule: Weeks 11 and 12
Week 11 vs. Titans: Divisional matchups are always tough and they can come to the wire even if one of the teams isn't doing particularly great at the moment the game takes place. The 2022 Titans are a clear example. Even though they were riding a six-game losing streak and were starting an inexperienced Josh Dobbs in the finale, they weren't going to simply surrender to the Jaguars. Instead, they showed up to play and came close to pulling off the offset.
For a moment, it looked like Tennessee had the Jags against the ropes but safety Rayshawn Jenkins was having none of it and forced a fumble that outside Josh Allen scooped to get Jacksonville on top. When the Jaguars travel to Nashville in 2023, they could be welcomed with the same kind of resistance. However, they won't need to rely on Jenkins to make a last-minute play to win this time around.

Week 12 @ Texans: While it's hard to see Houston competing for a playoff spot at this point of the year, they'll surely have hit their stride. In fact, C.J. Stroud could be a candidate for Offensive Rookie of the Year honors if the Texans are somewhat competitive in the second half of the season.
Due to all the upgrades the Texans made in the offseason, this won't be a guaranteed win for the Jaguars. Given that the game will be held at NRG Stadium, Houston will try to avoid being swept and will send the Jaguars home empty-handed. Loss
