The Jacksonville Jaguars exceeded all expectations last season, rallying late in the year to take the AFC South Division title.
They capped it off with an epic comeback win in the postseason, and with Trevor Lawrence looking like the superstar prospect most people thought he’d be.
But now, expectations are even higher for Doug Pederson’s team.
As a matter of fact, NFL analyst Pete Prisco even believes they’re going to the Super Bowl, and he explained on Barstool Sports’ “Pardon My Take” why he thinks that.
On top of being a very good, well-rounded football team, Prisco points out the fact that they have one of the most favorable schedules in the league.

They’re set to face two rookie quarterbacks twice this year, with C.J. Stroud and the Houston Texans and Anthony Richardson and the Indianapolis Colts.
They’ll face another rookie in Bryce Young and the Carolina Panthers outside of their division, with the Atlanta Falcons and Desmond Ridder and Baker Mayfield’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers also on deck.
The Jaguars will play the Buffalo Bills in London, which is obviously more favorable than going against them in Buffalo.
That’s why Prisco believes that this team could easily put up more than 500 points on offense this season, going as far as to say that winning fewer than 13 games would be a major failure.
While that’s a bit of a stretch, the Jaguars do have one of the most favorable — if not the most favorable — schedules in the league, and another leap from Lawrence could certainly put them over the top.NEXT: Former Player Makes Confident Statement About Daniel Jones
