No. 5 biggest "What If" in Jaguars history: Myles Jack wasn't down

It was the 2017 AFC Championship Game, and the Jaguars were in the process of beating up the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game. New England was battling to regain some momentum when Myles Jack made one of the most legendary plays in the history of the franchise:

First things first: Myles Jack definitely was not down. That's not really open for debate. But, what if he wasn't called down?

It's fair to note New England had the greatest quarterback in the history of the game on their side. But with a convoy of Jaguars in front of him, Myles Jack almost certainly would have scored, and even the great Tom Brady likely wouldn't have been able to come back and beat the Jags in time.

The Jaguars would have gone on to face now-head coach Doug Pederson's Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl, and probably would have won. Ok, well no one knows what would have happened, but it would have been a lot of fun. Maybe the team doesn't implode the following season.
