The Jacksonville Jaguars are on their way to their first Super Bowl trip
in franchise history if NFL.com’s predictions come true.Elliot Harrison released
his power rankings ahead of Week 1 of the preseason and the Jacksonville Jaguars
are ahead of every team in the AFC and only behind the Philadelphia Eagles in
the entire poll.Here’s what Harrison had to say about the Jaguars:Elite defense.
Productive run game. Solid offensive line. Yeah Ereck Flowers Jerseys 2019 , I’d say this is the best team in the AFC barring some sort of Bortles collapse in the regular season. But all indications are
that Bortles, who has had a fantastic camp so far, will be just fine when the
regular season hits and has picked up where he left off with solid performances
on the road against the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots in the
playoffs.What do you think? Are the Jaguars the best team in the AFC? Or should
it be the Patriots until Tom Brady retires? It took nearly two months, but the
Jacksonville Jaguars won a game, and it was in the familiar fashion of
suffocating defense and neutering the offense from doing anything that could
lead to turnovers, as they defeated the Indianapolis Colts 6-0 at TIAA Bank
Field.With Cody Kessler taking over for the benched Blake Bortles Black Andrew Norwell Jerseys , and with Leonard Fournette serving his one-game suspension for fighting, the Jags offense was much of the same snooze fest of
dump off passes and hand offs while using the play of their defense to carry
them through the finish line. Kessler finished with a mediocre 18/24 150 yards
passing with no touchdowns or interceptions. He did what he was asked, which is
to say, turn and hand it off and don’t try anything downfield that may cost the
team an opportunity. Josh Lambo was the only source of points for either team,
converting both field goal attempts on the rare occasions the Jaguars moved into
Colts territory.While Kessler was the story heading in, it was the return of
“Sacksonville” Andrew Norwell Jerseys 2019 , if only for a game, to it’s expected elite-level form on defense. After getting the doors blown off for much of the
game in their last meeting in early November, the Jaguars defense pitched a shut
out for their first time since October 22 of last year, ironically against the
Colts. With sacks by Yannick Ngakoue, Calais Campbell, and the game sealer
essentially by rookie Ronnie Harrison Black Landry Jones Jerseys , and pressure seemingly in the face of Andrew Luck all game, the defense seemed to be set on reestablishing their pride and
reputation against a team that had caused talk of disarray in the locker room on
that side of the ball last month.The win brings the Jags to 4-8 and potentially
unmoved from their draft spot as several teams in the current Top 10 of the NFL
Draft order, also won or were winning their games at the time of this
article.
