Jaguars @ Raiders Week 16

Back in 2022, the Raiders had Jacksonville against the ropes but couldn't deliver the final blow and lost. At the time, Josh McDaniels was the coach and Derek Carr was the quarterback. Also, they had one of the worst defenses in the league.

Now, Aidan O'Connell is behind center for the Raiders and Antonio Pierce is the head coach. Their defense is one of the hottest ones entering the season, but they still lack enough weapons to keep up with the best teams in the conference. This is to say that the Jags will win.

Prediction: Win

Jaguars vs. Titans Week 17

The AFC South race intensified in the offseason. Both the Indianapolis Colts and the Houston Texans made splash additions to their roster. That said, Jacksonville cannot afford to overlook the Tennessee Titans. They poached wide receiver Calvin Ridley in free agency and later traded for L'Jarius Sneed. With Bill Callahan taking the reins, expect the Titans to undergo to be re-energized.

However, Callahan, a rookie head coach, will run into several speed bumps along the way. Jacksonville will be one they won't be able to overcome, at least in 2024.

Prediction: Win

Jaguars @ Colts Week 18, the finale

For the finale, the Jaguars get the Colts. They swept them back in 2022, and they will pull off the feat again in 2024. The Colts took on the identity of head coach Shane Steichen and managed to stay afloat last year despite the fact that they suffered several key losses at different points of the year. Expect them to build off of that, and stay in the thick of the playoff race for most of the year.

However, the Jaguars will beat Indianapolis in the finale to get 11 wins for the season and qualify for the playoffs.

Prediction: Win
