Jacksonville Jaguars (home)
Date: Nov. 6
Time: 12 p.m. CST
What has changed: What has not changed for Jacksonville? The Jaguars had the most money to spend of any team in the National Football League, and they went to work early and often. General manager Dave Caldwell got into the fray immediately and signed defensive end Malik Jackson to a five-year, $90 million deal with $42.5 million guaranteed.
Caldwell kept the pace up after that, going after safety Tashaun Gipson and then adding running back Chris Ivory on a five-year contract, that really is a two-year deal based on guarantees. The Jaguars are clearly trying to get into the playoffs after watching Blake Bortles improve alongside Pro Bowl receiver Allen Robinson.
Should they scare you?: Jacksonville still has a ways to go, especially on defense, but it is no longer a total laughingstock. The Jaguars are going to compete in the AFC South and could win the division, although that is also a reflection on the rest of that group. The Jaguars are going to score points, and probably be in a bunch of 30-28 games.
If the Chiefs play well, they will win this game without much issue. However, should Kansas City stumble out of the gate and not be focused, this could be an upset. Head coach Andy Reid needs to stay on top of his team this week.
Prediction: 27-21, Chiefs
Next: Game #9
