The Jaguars are sporting another terrible record at 2-5 thus far, but they have been much more competitive this season than in year’s past. After years of drafting in the bottom third of the order, they have developed some talent and are showing signs of a turnaround. The offense is loaded with potential at the key positions, led by second-year quarterback Blake Bortles. He has young, but talented players around him – T.J. Yeldon, Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson – that will grow together in what could be a potent offense in some time.

Gus Bradley came to the Jaguars from the Seattle Seahawks because of his defensive prowess, but so far that has not carried over with this team. The defense ranks 31st in points against, but that can also be attributed to a 51-17 drubbing at the hands of the New England Patriots. Otherwise, the Jaguars have been in contention in just about every game.

As crazy as it sounds, the Jags are only a half game out of first place in the AFC South (don’t you wish the Ravens were in that division?) so they have something to fight for. Jacksonville is also on a bye week so the Ravens do not have an advantage in that sense. If Baltimore is serious about running the table, it obviously starts here.
