No. 2 QB remaining in the Jacksonville Jaguars 2023 schedule: C.J. Stroud, Texans
You have probably heard that C.J. Stroud is taking the NFL by storm, and that's not hyperbole. The former Ohio State Buckeye has played a huge role in turning the Houston Texans into a potential playoff team just months after being selected second overall in the draft.
Stroud is currently on pace to shatter pretty much every rookie passing record in the books and have the best quarterback season since Andrew Luck in 2012. That would be a pretty hefty accomplishment, and nobody will bat an eye if he does. Stroud is playing like a vested veteran and will give the Texans a chance to finish the 2023 season strong.
With Stroud at the helm, the Texans are within striking distance of the Jaguars in the AFC South. Based on how things are playing out, the divison race will be more competitive than it was originally expected to be.
No. 1 QB remaining in the Jacksonville Jaguars 2023 schedule: Lamar Jackson, Ravens
Like Baker Mayfield, Lamar Jackson has also experienced his fair share of ups and downs throughout his NFL career. Jackson, a first-round selection in 2018, was named league MVP in just his second season. However, injuries affected his performance the following years, and questions surfaced about his viability as a starting quarterback. Looking back, it's fair to say that offensive coordinator Greg Roman's simplistic game plan was holding Jackson back.
Under Todd Monken, Jackson has enjoyed a career revival, posting a career-best 69.5 percent completion rate. If he manages to stay healthy, the Baltimore Ravens will have a legitimate chance to reach the Super Bowl.
