23. Jacksonville Jaguars

After nearly earning a trip to the Super Bowl last season, the Jacksonville Jaguars were viewed as one of the early favorites to make a serious run in the AFC once again in 2018, which seemed to be the case following a 2-0 start. Since winning each of their first two games, the Jaguars have watched their season go downhill by losing eight of nine games, although the team finally came through with a win on Sunday.

In what may have been one of the ugliest games from Week 13, Jacksonville managed to shutout the Indianapolis Colts while only putting up six points in the contest. Obviously, a win like this doesn’t solve all of the problems the Jaguars have been dealing with, but when seeing how long it’s been since an actual win, it was easy to understand why the players were so fired up.

Now, the question becomes if Jacksonville can end the season on a hot note to give Doug Marrone a better chance of keeping his job since he’s been one of the top candidates on the hot seat in recent weeks, and rightfully so. Defeating the Tennessee Titans on the road won’t be easy, but if the Jaguars play like they did against the Colts, it’s certainly possible.
