The Jacksonville Jaguars finished the 2021 season with a 3-14 record, which was the worst in the league. They fired head coach Urban Myer during the season and replaced him with Doug Pederson, who led the Philadelphia Eagles to their first Super Bowl title in 2018.
The Jaguars averaged 14.9 points per game last season, which was 32nd in the league. They gave up 26.9 points per game, which was 28th.
Trevor Lawrence completed 59.6 percent of his passes for 3,691 yards, 12 touchdowns, and 17 interceptions. James Robinson led the team with 767 rushing yards and eight touchdowns, while Marvin Jones Jr. led the team with 832 receiving yards and four touchdowns.
They signed Christian Kirk during the offseason to give them depth at the wide receiver position and improved their offensive line by signing Brandon Scherff and drafting center Luke Fortner. The Jaguars spent more time trying to fix their defense, signing defensive tackle Foley Fatukasi, linebacker Foyesade Oluokun, and cornerback Darious Williams.
They also used five of their seven picks on defensive players, using the number one and 27th pick on former Georgia defensive end Travon Walker and former Utah linebacker Devin Lloyd.
The new additions they have will improve their team and they should be able to win more than three games this season. Unfortunately for the Jaguars, they still have a lot of holes to fill and will likely finish near the bottom of the league this season. But they will be more fun to watch this season, with a creative coach like Pederson calling the plays.
Jacksonville Jaguars Season Preview
The Jaguars won’t finish better than third in the AFC South, which is why most Super Bowl 2023 predictions and oddsmakers have them at +10000 to win the Super Bowl.
