Football is back and the Jacksonville Jaguars are less than 48 hours away from their season opener against the New York Giants.

Our friends at numberFire run projections on projections on projections and they currently have the Jaguars as the seventh best team in the NFL with a 64.1% chance to make the playoffs.

Here are numberFire’s projections for the 2018 regular season:

As far as Week 1, they give Jacksonville a 65.5% chance to win against New York.

What do you think? Is 65.5% a fair percentage, or should the Jaguars be favored by a bit more — especially considering that Olivier Vernon has been officially ruled out?
