In their 27 seasons in the NFL, the Jacksonville Jaguars have only made the playoffs seven times.
Their team history has been largely surrounded with disappointment, wondering what could have been.
However, with Trevor Lawrence at quarterback, the Jaguars look energized and hungry for a 2022 playoff berth.
As a result of their success, it appears that their stadium could use a face-lift.
The Jaguars are seeking to make $1 billion in stadium renovations, with proposed plans that include:
▪️ Shade roof over bowl seats
▪️ Capacity decrease from 68K to 60K
“We will essentially end up with a new stadium built on the existing structure.”

The Jaguars’ front office must be confident that they will be a great team for years to come, considering their billion-dollar proposal for a new stadium.
If the Jaguars can pull off a victory against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, they will make the playoffs, the organization’s eighth playoff appearance, and the first since their 2017 run to the AFC Championship.
Jacksonville is one of the newest NFL franchises, and adding these renovations would not only re-invigorate their current fans but hopefully add new fans as well.
Plus, winning seems to solve all woes.
Lawrence appears to be their franchise quarterback for the foreseeable future, especially considering his impressive leap from his rookie year in 2021.
Will the Jaguars be able to not only make the playoffs but make a run at another AFC Championship appearance?
The AFC is an incredibly stacked division, with dominant teams like the Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs, and Cincinnati Bengals.
Knocking any one of those teams off would be a remarkable feat for the Jaguars.
But first, they need to get to the dance.
Tune in on Sunday for what should be a hard-fought battle between the Jaguars and the Titans.
