Welcome to Week 17!
The 8-7 Jacksonville Jaguars will take on the 2-13 Carolina Panthers at 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, Dec. 31 at EverBank Stadium. The Jags are 6.5-point favorites, according to our friends at DraftKings Sportsbook, and the total is set at 37.5 points.
This week’s biggest storyline is more of a question: can the Jaguars stop their free fall?
Jacksonville has lost four consecutive games, and though they remain in the driver’s seat in the AFC South, the vibes in Northeast Florida are approaching clown movement levels.
After stumbling into a generational quarterback prospect in 2021 and then a Super Bowl-winning head coach in 2022, the Jaguars failed to continue improving its roster in 2023. This embarrassing losing streak is the result.
If Jacksonville falls to Carolina -- the worst team in the league -- find shelter. Hell will break loose.
