The other three teams in the division all have three fewer losses too so they are well on their way. Barring a miracle for one of the other three teams, the Jaguars should cruise to their second straight AFC South Division title.
Now, that should no longer be the regular season goal. In the NFL, every team should have their eyes on the Super Bowl. Something that you can do to help you win the Super Bowl is get a first-round bye in the playoffs. You do that by having the best record in your conference.
For the Jaguars, winning the AFC is going to be very hard. There are some truly elite teams going in this conference right now. However, there were a few events that took place on Sunday that helped them in their quest to be the number one seed.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are a really good team that is in a really good spot.
The Jaguars are now in a four-way tie for the top spot in the conference. This is because of the fact that the Kansas City Chiefs lost to the Denver Broncos on Sunday. Now, the Chiefs and Jaguars along with the Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins have the same record.
Their 6-2 record is the mark that has them at the top of the AFC. Only the 7-1 Philadelphia Eagles have a better record than them from the NFC.
If the Jaguars can find a way to win this conference in the regular season, it would be very nice to skip the first round of the postseason. It would also lock in every subsequent playoff game (besides the Super Bowl) as a home game.
They have a very good defense which was the question coming into the season. We know their offense is going to score some points so they need to make sure all of this keeps going. If it does, they'll continue to be in great shape all year long!
