The Jacksonville Jaguars are in trouble. They came into the season thinking that they could be one of the best teams in the NFL. After winning a playoff game last year and getting better during the off-season, it was a realistic expectation.
Now, the expectation has to be that they will bounce back after the season hasn't gone their way to start. They won in Week 1 but things haven't gone their way since.
They had a tough week against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2 which can be expected. The defending Super Bowl champions are still elite and are hard to beat. The Jaguars hung in with them but came up short.
Week 3 is where people started to worry. They were beaten badly by the Houston Texans who are supposed to be one of the worst teams in the NFL. They are now on a losing streak and need to get this thing turned around quickly.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are facing some adversity heading into Week 4.
There is no better place for the Jaguars to get things right than London. They lead the league in appearances in London as it has basically become their second home at this point. They will take on the Atlanta Falcons there in Week 4.
They need to come out of the gate strong in this game. If they don't bring their best, they won't win. The Atlanta Falcons are better than some people may have thought coming into the season and will play this game tough. They are 2-1 after a good three weeks to begin the year.
With that said, the Jaguars are the better team on paper so they need to play like it. Getting away from the noise and going to London is a great place for them to figure it out. A lot of the Jaguars players should be comfortable with this trip at this point.
The Jaguars will play there in Week 5 as well. This one will be against the Buffalo Bills who are one of the best teams in the NFL. Nothing would be better for this franchise than to enter Europe 1-2 and leave 3-2. Hopefully, they end up figuring out their issues and start dominating again.
