2. The Jaguars' O-Line will limit Chris Jones, give up no sacks vs. the Chiefs

Besides Travis Kelce's availability, defensive tackle Chris Jones' return to the Chiefs is one of the biggest storylines heading into Sunday. Not pleased with his contract, the former Mississippi State Bulldog held out and skipped the opener to get a more favorable deal.

Jones' holdout has ended. Although he didn't get the pay bump he expected, he will be fully focused on the game, which is bad news for Jacksonville. The All-Pro defensive tackle could give the Jaguars' interior offensive line fits.

The good news is that Jones is currently the only legitimate threat across the Kansas City defensive front and if they contain him, they should have no trouble giving Trevor Lawrence a clean pocket. Expect Anton Harrison and the rest of his fellow hog mollies to hold their own and allow no sacks.

1. Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence throws for 3 TDs vs. the Chiefs in Week 2

Trevor Lawrence didn't come out of the opener with an earth-shattering statline. His 241 yards with two touchdowns and one interception look pretty mundane but a closer look shows that he was making all kinds of throws and moving the chains at key times. Heck, his pick was a product of rookie running back Tank Bigsby not being able to reel in a pass Lawrence threw.

Having been able to test his connection with Calvin Ridley in Week 1, expect Lawrence to keep trusting him to make plays in Week 2. On the other hand, Ridley won't be the only player the Steezy Trev will target. He'll take advantage of his wide array of weapons and will distribute the ball. This should lead to his first three-touchdown game of the season.
