Jaguars look for Division title

24 December 2017 03:55:55 GMTPlus10

The Jacksonville Jaguars have already clinched a postseason place, but can win the AFC Division crown on Sunday when they play the San Francisco 49ers at Levi's Stadium.

To do so however, the Jaguars will have to beat a San Francisco side that has won three in a row under new quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

Jacksonville arrives in the Bay Area with their own three-game winning streak with victories over the Indianapolis Colts, the Seattle Seahawks and the Houston Texans.

Last week's 45-7 rout of the Texans was the Jaguars' biggest of the season with quarterback Blake Bortles completing 21-of-29 for 326 yards and three touchdowns.

Bortles, who has been perceived as something of a bust since being drafted out of UCF with the third overall pick in the 2014 Draft, has statistically been the best signal caller in the NFL in December.

Should that continue, Jacksonville will be a legitimate Super Bowl threat, although the fact remains that the 25-year old still owns a career completion percentage of under 60 per-cent.

Jacksonville are 1.45 to win on Sunday, with the 49ers priced at 2.80.

The Jaguars remain on the road next week when they take on the Tennessee Titans at the Nissan Stadium in Nashville.

Stunned by the resurgent 49ers in San Francisco last week, the Titans close out their campaign first against the Los Angeles Rams before welcoming in the Jaguars for a potential show down.

Tennessee currently occupies a playoff place with a better winning percentage within the conference than the Buffalo Bills and the Baltimore Ravens.

One more win may well be enough to clinch a postseason place, particularly given that the Bills are on the road to take on both the New England Patriots and the Miami Dolphins.

Jacksonville are 10.00 to win the Super Bowl this season.
