Don't Overlook the Jaguars

After defeating the Miami Dolphins by 28 points this past Sunday — a team that was hailed as the next best thing since sliced bread — it would be easy for the Bills, and their fans, to overlook any team that isn't named the Kansas City Chiefs.

But the Jaguars are better than their record suggests.

In 2022, the Jaguars were 3–7 heading into the bye week before rattling off six wins in their final seven games and clinching a playoff berth for the first time since the 2017 season where they defeated the Bills in the Wild Card playoff round.

The Jaguars eventually fell to those Chiefs in the divisional round last season, but they kept things close and after wide receiver Calvin Ridley became eligible to return following a lengthy suspension for disobeying the NFL's gambling policy, the Jaguars had heavy expectations entering the 2023 season.

Sure, the Jaguars have gotten off to a disappointing 2–2 start, but their roster is incredibly talented. Whether it's Allen or the team's plethora of offensive weapons and quarterback Trevor Lawrence, the Jaguars can beat their opponents in a number of ways.

The Bills are certainly the better team all-around, but with all things considered, the Jaguars aren't going to let Buffalo off easy in their makeshift home of London, England.
