One Year Turnaround
I certainly did not have the Jacksonville Jaguars making the playoffs this season. As I’m sure most Jaguars fans (if there are any) didn’t have them making it either. Yet, I did expect them to be markedly better than the previous two years in which they had 1 and 3 wins respectively. QB Trevor Lawrence was in a lose-lose situation last year with no help in front of him on the offensive line and a lack of playmakers to get the ball to. Those two things have greatly improved and show why he was selected number one overall. The defense has shown vast improvement as well with the Jaguars winning 7 of their last 9 games to clinch the porous AFC North division title. That’s another reason as to why the Jaguars have improved so quickly. Playing the Texans, Colts and Titans twice every season will do that. Regardless it’s good to see fresh faces in the playoffs and the Jaguars fit that mold to a tee.
