Each NFL team’s record prediction for the 2019 season
Jacksonville Jaguars: 6-10
As exciting as it is to see the Jacksonville Jaguars replace Blake Bortles with Nick Foles after landing the former Super Bowl MVP in free agency, this doesn’t necessarily guarantee that things will be smooth during the 2019 season.
If anything, Foles faces the difficult task of seeing if he can find success playing in a younger offense like the Jaguars. This will be a completely different scenario from his time spent with the Philadelphia Eagles.
One year after coming up just short of earning a trip to the Super Bowl, Jacksonville took a bit of a step back last season by only winning five games. It was frustrating to see since the team did in fact win their first two games.
Foles certainly isn’t going to solve all the problems this team is dealing with on offense, but at least he should be an upgrade over Bortles after looking at all the struggles surrounding the former first-round pick out of UCF.
As far as what to expect from the Jaguars in 2019, with all due respect to Doug Marrone and company, it may be difficult to compete in what is looking like a very tough AFC South since the other three teams already looks like playoff contenders ready to make a run.
Jacksonville certainly deserves credit for some of the moves made this offseason to help bounce back after last year’s 5-11 finish, but it may be another year before the Jaguars can join the playoff conversation, especially since there’s some uncertainty in the passing game.
