The Jacksonville Jaguars embarked on the 2023-24 NFL season with lofty expectations, fueled by the memory of their remarkable turnaround the previous year, when they ascended from last place to clinch AFC South supremacy for the first time since 2017. Despite finishing with a 9-8 record, matching their previous season's performance, they fell short of defending their title, as the Houston Texans, led by C.J. Stroud, went on to win the division title the final week of the regular season. The team faced challenges on both offense and defense, with notable shortcomings compared to their previous form. Despite the addition of Calvin Ridley, the offense failed to replicate its prior effectiveness, while the defense struggled with reduced pass rush output, leading to vulnerabilities in their pass coverage.

The Jaguars' secondary, particularly, faltered in crucial moments, contributing to a string of losses in the latter part of the season. In response, GM Trent Baalke prioritized bolstering the secondary through free agency and the NFL Draft. The new acquisitions will face a stern test in divisional play matching wits against formidable quarterbacks like Stroud, Anthony Richardson, and Will Levis. However, the spotlight remains firmly on quarterback Trevor Lawrence, who enters the final season of his rookie contract. Despite experiencing a decline in performance last season, Lawrence's future contract negotiations loom over his on-field focus. While he expresses commitment and positivity in post-OTA discussions, the potential for contract distractions lingers, adding pressure to the coaching staff to elevate the team's performance beyond the previous lackluster showing.

During the initial stretch of their schedule, the Jaguars appeared to be on course for success, securing victories in six of their first eight games both outright and against the closing NFL odds. Despite a disappointing 34-3 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, they rebounded with crucial divisional wins against the Titans and Texans, covering the spread in both matchups. However, tragedy struck in Week 13 when Christian Kirk suffered a season-ending injury during a Monday night matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals, resulting in a 34-31 overtime loss. Trevor Lawrence also faced an injury scare in that game, aggravating an ankle injury. With Kirk sidelined and Lawrence playing through discomfort, Jacksonville struggled, losing five of their final six games, including a disheartening 28-20 defeat to the Titans in the season finale.

Despite Ryan Tannehill's modest passing yards in the finale, he found the end zone twice, while Derrick Henry ran rampant, accumulating 153 yards and a touchdown. Only six teams conceded more passing touchdowns than the 1.6 the Jaguars allowed over the course of the regular season, prompting significant offseason efforts to bolster the secondary. One of the first moves in free agency was inking Ravens CB Ronald Darby to a two-year $10M deal. That was followed by snatching Darnell Savage from Green Bay to man the nickel back position. Jacksonville however wasn’t done there after selecting Florida State CB Jarrian Jones in the third round of the NFL Draft, and following it up with plucking Ole Miss CB Deantre Prince in the fifth round underscoring the commitment to defensive improvement. Had Baalke needed a quarterback, he likely would’ve selected Jayden Daniels considering three of his first five draft picks came out of the Tigers’ program with the headliner coming in the form of Brian Thomas Jr. who is expected to slot right in and give the offense more consistent production than Ridley was able to provide a season ago. Former Bill Gabe Davis was also brought in formulating a completely new pass catching look for Jacksonville entering the 2024-25 NFL betting season.

The Jaguars face a challenging start to the upcoming season, with three of their first four opponents favored to make the playoffs at the online sportsbook. Subsequent matchups against the Colts, Bears, Patriots, and Packers, including consecutive London games, add to the difficulty. Following these tests, they confront the Eagles, Vikings, and Lions before a much-needed bye in Week 12. In all, Jacksonville will be forced to run up against what looks to be a highly competitive AFC South, NFC North, AFC East, as well as standalone games with the Browns, Eagles, and Raiders. Sharp Football Analysis rates the Jags schedule in the middle of the pack (No. 14), but it sure looks to be a lot tougher than it looks when going by the opposition’s current win totals.

Jacksonville was said to be a team on the come at that time. Instead, they regressed, never to return to the postseason until 2023 when they battled back from a 27-7 halftime deficit to shock the Chargers in the wild Card Round before losing but covering against the eventual Super Bowl champion Chiefs at Arrowhead in the Division Round.
