How 2 eras of Jaguars football changed the franchise

How 2 eras of Jaguars football changed the franchise

While they weren’t always playing together, the Jaguars have showcased two types of firepower offenses in its history. The Jacksonville Jaguars have evolved over the 26 years of their existence since starting play during the 1995 NFL season. While they are still a relatively new organization and franchise within the league, the early returns were plentiful, to say the least. Across two separate eras, the Jaguars dominated offensively in two separate areas of offense — through the air and on the ground. While there’s not a way to combine the two, it’d be interesting to...

Browns are favored by a touchdown over the Jaguars

Scott Galvin-USA TODAY Sports The Jacksonville Jaguars are currently 6.5-point underdogs for their Week 12 home matchup against the Cleveland Browns. I don’t even want to imagine what the line would be in Cleveland. That’s right, folks. The Browns — the team we derided for years by always coming back to well, at least we aren’t them — is favored to win by a touchdown. On the road. Against our Jaguars. That’s all according to Bovada, who has the over/under set at 49.0 points. In short, Vegas thinks the Steelers win with a score around 28-21. Traditionally,...

Jaguars fall 27-3 to Pittsburgh Steelers, Shad Khan nets 100th loss

Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports The Jaguars fall to 1-9 on the year after losing 27-3 to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Jaguars entered the week in a must-win situation, as is the case in throughout the remainder of the season without taking into account draft positioning. At 1-8, the team was, as expected, desperate for a victory. That, however, will have to wait another week as the Jaguars fall to the Pittsburgh Steelers by a score of [ to ]. This will also mark Jaguars owner Shad Khan’s 100th loss since officially acquiring the franchise in 2012. Since 2012, the...

Jaguars receiver Keelan Cole feels ‘really good’ in Jacksonville

Photo by Dylan Buell/ Though he’s one of the team’s top-flight receivers this season, Keelan Cole’s lasting power in Jacksonville is to be determined. The Jaguars will have a major decision to make at its receiver position following the season. Not only will star receiver DJ Chark Jr. be up for an extension, Keelan Cole, the team’s fourth-year undrafted standout from Kentucky-Wesleyan has emerged as a major playmaker with the team once again. In 2017, Cole had a breakout rookie season, hauling in 42 passes for 748 yards and three touchdowns. He had the makings...

Q&A with Behind the Steel Curtain: What makes the Pittsburgh defense so successful?

Photo by Ronald Martinez/ Another week, another seemingly tough task for the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-8). The 9-0 Pittsburgh Steelers will visit TIAA Bank Field for a 1 p.m. kickoff on Sunday. While this game appears to be one that can quickly turn into a blowout, the Jaguars surprised a lot of us by hanging with the Green Bay Packers last week and have historically played the Steelers tough. Will any of that matter this weekend? We reached out to Jeff Hartman of Behind The Steel Curtain — SB Nation’s great website for all things Steelers — to get the scoop on...

Jaguars face near-impossible task against elite Steelers front seven

Jaguars face near-impossible task against elite Steelers front seven

Photo by Sarah Stier/ Perhaps the most challenging task for the Jaguars this weekend will come against the Steelers defensive front. The Pittsburgh Steelers are the best team in the league right now with a perfect 9-0 record under the guidance or potentially future Hall of Fame coach Mike Tomlin, who has also never posted a losing record during his 13-year tenure in Pittsburgh. But, this weekend, the Jaguars (1-8) will face off against perhaps one of the best Tomlin-coached teams in a decade, one that boasts a front-seven on defense that Jacksonville head coach Doug...

Vote Ngakoue, get a better draft pick

Vote Ngakoue, get a better draft pick

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports The Jacksonville Jaguars traded defensive end Yannick Ngakoue to the Minnesota Vikings prior to the start of the 2020 NFL season. It was pretty clear Ngakoue was perfectly fine sitting out the season and wouldn’t play for the Jaguars, so they got what they could. The Vikings, who quickly looked like they’d bomb out the season, flipped Ngakoue to the Baltimore Ravens. Well, it’s Pro Bowl voting time and Ngakoue is actually having a good season (five sacks in seven starts), but one genius Jaguars fan on Reddit has figured out a way to...
