There was a lot of excitement around the Jacksonville Jaguars ahead of the 2021 NFL season. Unfortunately, ex-head coach Urban Meyer's personality and coaching style caused issues both on and off the field, resulting in another year without a postseason appearance.
Former Super Bowl-winning coach Doug Pederson is now tasked with turning the Jaguars around and his track record has fans feeling optimistic. Making the playoffs is going to be an uphill battle, but Jacksonville has the tools to help them get there if everyone plays up to potential.

Jaguars 2022 Season Prediction
The Jaguars look to have a much better team on paper compared to last year and could catch some people off guard during the 2022 NFL season.
Trevor Lawrence must be better than he was last year and, fortunately, management has given him the weapons to do just that. The Jaguars will also be counting on 2022 first-round picks Travon Walker and Devin Lloyd to make an immediate impact to improve the defense.
Seven wins is a lot to ask from the Jaguars, especially with how their schedule is shaping up. Although they'll be a better team, I still think they'll miss the playoffs while finishing with the under on their win total.
