Jacksonville Jaguars: 3 Reasons They Will Not Make the Playoffs

Steve Flynn-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars are currently finding out how difficult it is to sustain success in the NFL. They were a team that was establishing themselves as one of the elites after nearly making the Super Bowl last season. They had the best, if not one of the best defenses in the league along with a fierce running attack. All was going according to plan when the season started.

They won three out of their first four games with their dominant win against the New England Patriots as the highlight. The defense was once again top dog, and the offense was moving the football instead well considering running back Leonard Fournette had been out. Then comes the Kansas City Chiefs who gave the Jacksonville Jaguars defense a bit of humble pie.

Ever since that game, the Jaguars haven’t been right. The Chiefs took away their mojo and started a five-game losing streak for the Jaguars. From 3-1 to 3-6 in almost an instant. The favorites to win the AFC south now look to wager their hopes on a wild card berth. The Houston Texans are just too far out for them to catch at 6-3. A wildcard berth is possible for them, I mean they do have the elite talent on defense, and the offense now has Fournette back from injury.

However, Fournette’s return is too little too late. The damage has been done to this Jacksonville team. The condition they are currently in would require a miracle for them to make it into the playoffs. With that said, here are the three reasons the Jacksonville Jaguars will not make the playoffs.
