There's no such thing as a guaranteed win in the NFL. You have probably heard that even underdogs can rise to the challenge on any given Sunday. As cliche as it may sound, it's true. This is why they can't afford to take their guard down when they welcome the 0-2 Houston Texans in Week 3.
Currently, Jacksonville is favored to come on top but divisional games are never easy. Moreover, they've lost three of their lost bouts against their AFC South. Sure, this is a different Houston team but they will show up with the intention of leaving Duval with a win. That said, the Jaguars have enough firepower to repel the Texans.
With Trevor Lawrence leading the way, the offense has a chance to bounce back from an underwhelming outing in Week 2. Similarly, the defense has shown the ability to stymie opponents the last two games. For that reason, it's easy to envision Jacksonville getting their second win of the year. With that in mind, here are five bold predictions for Week 3.
5. Josh Allen and the Jaguars pass rush will register four sacks
Outside linebacker Josh Allen is currently day-to-day after suffering a shoulder injury in Week 2. However, there's a good chance he'll suit up and if he does, he and fellow pass rusher Travon Walker will wreak havoc at the line of scrimmage. The Houston offensive line isn't currently in great shape.
This will give the Jaguars' pass rush the chance to feast on quarterback C.J. Stroud and register four sacks.
