Like many teams, the Jacksonville Jaguars are conducting minicamps and organized team activities at the moment to prepare for the upcoming season. They were successful last season as they finished first with a 10-6 record in the AFC South Division and made it to the AFC Championship.

 

Chatters are all over the NFL and the city of Jacksonville if the team can make it to the Super Bowl this upcoming season.

 

Challengers

 

The Jacksonville Jaguars have many reasons to think why they can be one of the top contenders. One of which is that they had one of the best defenses – second overall in total defense, first in passing defense, second in sacks, second in interceptions, and third in forced fumbles.

 

Apart from a slot cornerback, every starting player on defense is coming back to the team next season, so it is expected that their defense is having another breakout year. Two of the key players in defense are Telvin Smith, who had 76 tackles to lead the team, and Calais Campbell, finishing with 14.5 sacks in the 2017 season.

 

The run game of the Jaguars is another reason they have the potential on being a contender for the Super Bowl title.

 

Leonard Fournette is predicted to have another great year coming up as he finished last season as eighth overall for rushing and second among rookies. He now has experience, so he would know how to find the extra yard for every carry. The great running game of Fournette reduces the pressure on quarterback Blake Bortles in making all the plays.

 

Struggles

 

It is almost a requirement in winning the Super Bowl that the team has a star quarterback as this is arguably the most important position in American football. Of course, all positions are important, but it is hard to argue that the quarterback calls the shots and makes the plays.

 

In the past, the Jacksonville Jaguars have had struggles with their quarterback. A few years ago, they finally got Blake Bortles as their guy, but he is yet to be an all-star. He has had some great games, but he has also made some blunders during crucial moments of the game.

The Jacksonville Jaguars had a great year last season, but Bortles was still a little below average, ranking 20th in quarterback ratings. Not bad at all, but also not good. If the Jaguars are aiming for a shot next season, Bortles better play the best season of his entire career.

 

Moreover, many players are coming back next season, but they lost a key player – Allen Robinson – as he signed up with the Chicago Bears during the offseason. About two years ago, Robinson was one of the best receivers of the Jacksonville Jaguars, but he was out with an injury for most of the last season. The team drafted D.J. Chark, so hopefully, he can step up as the receiver this year.

 

Conclusion

 

With all the predictions and statistics, it can still be hard to say how the Jacksonville Jaguars will do this year. They are expecting to have a great training camp and hopefully another chance of being in the playoffs again this season.
