Jacksonville Jaguars: 2017 NFL Season Preview
Jacksonville Jaguars: The Early Years
In 1995, the Jacksonville Jaguars were welcomed into the National Football League as an expansion team. In their first six seasons, they made the playoffs five out of the six. The furthest the Jaguars have gone was in 1999 in the AFC Championship game. Six seasons later they made it to the postseason but failed in the 2005 Wildcard round. Since then, they have not made the playoffs.
Jacksonville Jaguars Going Extant
When Jacksonville Jaguars’ head coach Gus Bradly was hired to coach the Jaguars, he inherited a 2-14 in 2012. In 2016, he could only lead them to a 2-12 record. That’s because, in week 16 of the regular season, Bradly was replaced with Doug Marrone. In the two games Marrone was in, the team showed promise as they went 2-1. Overall, the Jaguars finished with a 3-13 record. That landed them in the 4th spot in the AFC South. Quarterback Blake Bortles completed a little more than half of his passes holding strong at 58 percent. He threw for 3,805 yards, had 23 touchdowns and only threw 16 interceptions.
Are Jacksonville Jaguars: What’s Ahead
For Jacksonville, 2017 looks to be a big year. In the offseason, the teams interim head coach Doug Marrone is now is their new head coach. He’s expected to turn this 3-13 team into a playoff contender. Tom Coughlin, the former Giants head coach returns to where he began. This time, it’s in the front office. His role with the Jaguars this go around is in the Football operations department. As for the regular season, here is what the Jacksonville Jaguars are facing in 2017. On September 10, the Jaguars will start the season with an AFC South rival in the Houston Texans on the road. In Week 3, it will be against the Baltimore Ravens. But, it will be in London, England at Webley Stadium for the NFL International Series. Looking at the overall in looking at the team’s schedule, I believe that the Jaguars will split the divisional games. After all is said and done, That t13-3 record they had a year ago will be 9-7.
