The Jaguars fell to the Titans in embarrassing fashion last week. That could be really, really bad news for the Jets.
Since Doug Marrone took over as the head coach in Jacksonville, with two games left in the 2016 season, the Jaguars have gone 5-1 in games following a loss during the regular season. Not only is their record impressive, but the fashion in which they've been winning those games is, quite honestly, ridiculous. The Jacksonville Jaguars have outscored opponents by an average of over 20 points per game. That's right: TWENTY POINTS PER GAME.
The only time the Jaguars have not come out victorious following a loss in the Doug Marrone era was week 17 of last season, when the Jaguars took on the Titans in a game that was meaningless as the Jaguars had already locked up their spot in the playoffs.
The other five games? A 21 point victory over the Titans, a 37 point win in London against the Ravens, a 21 point win in Pittsburgh, and two wins over the Colts in which the Jaguars outscored them 57-10.
This group of Jaguars, under Doug Marrone, responds incredibly well to adversity. They don't like to lose and they don't allow things to snowball. And it hasn't just been one side of the ball that's dominated after losses, it's been a team effort.
That's bad news for the Jets, who come to town this weekend with a rookie QB at the helm. Sam Darnold has thrown five interceptions in three games this year and has thrown two interceptions in each of his last two games.
The Jaguars will be hungry and ready to end their three game home stand on a positive note before they take to the road for two weeks.
If history has taught us anything, it's that this one could be ugly for the Jets. The Jaguars are currently favored by 7.5.
