2. Jaguars RT Anton Harrison will show progress, won't allow a sack vs. the Texans

It's not hyperbole to say that rookie right Anton Harrison is off to a rough start to his NFL career, giving up three sacks in the last two games. He hasn't been much better in pass protection. However, that should be somewhat expected from a player who is making the transition to the NFL and also switching positions after mostly playing left tackle in college. The good news is that he's got the talent to bounce back and he'll have an opportunity against the Texans.

Although Houston has some talent up front, they don't have a player as dominant as Chris Jones. Similarly, offensive coordinator Press Taylor told the media the coaching staff didn't do a good job of helping Harrison in Week 2.

He's got a better matchup against the Texans and will prove why he was the 27th overall pick by not giving up a sack. You could argue that's not a particularly high bar but he's got to start somewhere, right?

1. Trevor Lawrence will lead the Jaguars to a win, throwing 3 TDs, no INTs along the way

The Jaguars' offense wasn't in sync against the Chiefs. Zay Jones, Christian Kirk, and Calvin Ridley all drop passes. The offensive line couldn't block Travis Etienne couldn't make plays and last but not least, Trevor Lawrence's accuracy was off. But the Chiefs loss is now in the rear mirror and Lawrence will rebound against the Texans.

Lawrence has previously shown he can play at an absurdly high level and Week 3 won't be any different. After an underwhelming outing, he'll resume his ascension into the upper echelon of NFL quarterback by throwing three touchdowns and no picks.
