JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS 2021 WIN PREDICTION

BY ADAM GREENE

Thanks to Adam Gase screwing everything up with the New York Jets, the Jacksonville Jaguars landed the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft and used it to pick the No. 1 overall player – Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence.

They now have their QB, their coach in former Florida and Ohio State national championship winner Urban Meyer. What good will it do? Not much this season, probably, but we’re building to the future and the Jags have done as solid a job as anyone with the resources that they had, including signing a ton of free agents to add to one of the weakest rosters in the league.

FORECAST

The Jags have been set up with success, with a relatively light opening schedule (unless the Denver Broncos can land Aaron Rodgers). They open at the Houston Texans and are already a -2.5 favorite in that game. After that, it’s the aforementioned Broncos then the Arizona Cardinals before traveling to Cincinnati to face the Bengals.

Of course, after that the schedule catches fire with games against the Tennessee Titans, Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks and Buffalo Bills. Jacksonville plays five straight games against teams that finished 2020 with a winning record with its reprieve coming against the San Francisco 49ers, a team that only ended last year with a losing record because every starter from their 2019 Super Bowl team was hurt. It’s going to be a long season is what I’m saying.

Final Record Prediction: 5-12
