Rams VS. Jaguars
Why I think the Jags would make it
I have the Jacksonville Jaguars coming out of the AFC this 2018-19 season. I have them finishing the regular season with an 11-5 record and getting the #2 seed in the playoffs. The reason I have them reaching the Superbowl is because for one, their defense is unbeatable! On the offensive side, they have a great O-line, they have a great running back in Fournette (if he is healthy). QB Blake Bortles and the receivers are average. but Bortles has shown he can be good enough to help put points on the board and he and the offense will have plenty of chances to score because of their stellar defense. Also, likely opponents in the playoffs such as the Steelers and Patriots don’t have great defenses, This bodes well for the Jags offense.
This Jags team reminds me of the 2012-13 Baltimore Ravens that went on to win the Superbowl. Great defense. Solid pieces on offensive with a QB who can rise to the occasion when needed. Only difference is, The Ravens had better receivers, I dont believe the Jags have a receiver on their team that is as good as Torrey Smith or Anquan Boldin. Also another difference is, the team I have facing the Jags in the Superbowl, I believe to be better than the Raven’s opponent during their Superbowl in 2013.
Why I think the Rams would make it
I have the Los Angeles Rams coming out of the NFC this 2018-19 season. I have them finishing the regular season with an outstanding 14-2 record and getting the #1 seed in the playoffs. The reason I have them reaching the Superbowl is because they are loaded everywhere. Offense, Defense, Special teams and they have one of the best coaches in the NFL. This offense finished 1st last season and they went and added wide receiver Brandin Cooks. Their defense was already pretty good last year with Aaron Donald, then they went and got Ndamukong Suh, Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib.
Final Superbowl Prediction:
Rams 24 VS. Jags 10
The Rams are overwhelmingly better than the Jags as well as the rest of the NFL. Like I said, they are loaded everywhere. Jags QB Bortles and his offense is not good enough to move efficiently enough against the Rams defense. Even if they were, its going to be hard to keep up with the Rams offense in which the Jags defense will actually do a pretty decent job defending, but you can only do so much against an absolutely loaded roster that has one of the best coaches in the NFL
