Since the Jaguars have been in the AFC South they have never been in first place or tied for first in the month of December until now. With a win over the Titans today the Jaguars remain in first place and could be there by their selves if the Colts lose this afternoon.
At the half way point I said that the Jaguars would need to go 6-2 in the second half to win their division and that still looks like the case. Since the Jaguars have gone 2-1 since the break they now need to go 3-1 in the last four games. That is something that is that should happen. Next week the Jaguars play the Raiders, then have their biggest test at Lucas Oil against the Colts, then the Redskins and finally the Texans.
The Jaguars have already beaten the Colts and Texans this year but both were at home and close games. Since then both teams seem to be struggling. The Redskins and Raiders are also dangerous but struggling. If the Jags win the next two games they could win the division at home the day after Christmas. It would be nice if they won out and got at least the third seed because right now the Jaguars would play the Patriots in the first round. Why do we always get the Patriots in the playoffs? Either way it is a great time to be a Jags fan and we are still getting better.
