Jaguars have a burtal final four-game stretch
Jacksonville Jaguars have a tough final four games against New England Patriots (10-2), Pittsburgh Steelers (7-5), Cincinnati Bengals (5-6-1), and Philadelphia Eagles (5-7).
Before a brutal final four-game stretch, Jacksonville needs to build some cushion in the AFC North. Alough Jacksonville finds itself atop the division, but in a tie with the rival Pittsburgh Steelers. So there’s little to no room for error.
But coming off a commanding 38-6 win over the Miami Dolphins, the Jaguars have confidence. If Jacksonville wins three of the final four games, including its matchup in Pittsburgh, the Jaguars will win the AFC North no matter what anybody else does.
If the Jaguars was beaten by the Steelers on Christmas day and both teams finish with the same record, then more complex tiebreaker procedures will come into play.
The Jaguars aren’t going to start looking down the line. They have a big boulder in their way already with the Patriots up next.
