2. Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence will throw 2 TDs, join the MVP conversation in 2023

Trevor Lawrence played well early in the season but that wasn't reflected on the statsheet because he wasn't getting enough help from his supporting cast. Whether his receivers dropped passes or the offensive line couldn't block, Lawrence had added pressure on his shoulders to deliver. However, that's changed the last couple weeks, and he's shown what he's capable of doing when he gets a bit of help from his teammates.

Lawrence's numbers have looked much better the past two games. They weren't bad to begin with but they weren't what you expected from a top 10 quarterback. Now, the offense is clicking and the Jaguars have a favorable matchup against the Colts' defense. They scored 31 points in the opener and they should be able to put up as many in Week 6. Steeze Trev will have yet another efficient game, throw two touchdown passes, and join the MVP conversation.

1. The Jaguars will hand Gardner Minshew a loss in his homecoming

One of the biggest plotlines surrounding the Jaguars' bout against Indy in Week 6 is the return of Gardner Minshew, who spent his first two seasons in Jacksonville. Minshew has delivered when called upon and he should give the Colts a fighting chance to win Sunday. In relief of Anthony Richardson this season, he's completed 68.7 percent of his passes for 553 yards with two touchdowns.

That said, the Jaguars will put an end to Minshew's hot streak in Week 6. They have lots of tape from his days in Jacksonville. Even though he played for the previous regime, the Jags know his strengths and weaknesses better than anyone. On top of that, defensive coordinator Mike Caldwell's unit has played well this season. They won't have trouble handling Minshew and will be a big reason they will come on top Sunday.
