Does Kansas City Have A Chance at EverBank Stadium?

In their season opener, the Chiefs welcomed the Lions to their home turf. But they head into week two at 0-1 as they suffered a 21-20 loss. With the 1-point loss to the Lions, the Chiefs also took a loss vs. the spread as 4-point favorites.

Versus the Lions, the Chiefs finished with 23 rushing attempts, and Patrick Mahomes led the way with 45 yards. Meanwhile, Patrick Mahomes had 39 pass attempts, resulting in 226 yards and a passer rating of 77.

When it came to defense, the Chiefs recorded one sack and one interception. Additionally, the team’s secondary allowed 250 passing yards, while the rush defense gave up 118 rushing yards.

Is a Home Win Possible for the Jaguars?

In their opening game of the season, the Jaguars hit the road to take on the Colts and secured a 31-21 win. Against the spread, the Jaguars’ 10-point win was enough to cover as 3.5-point favorites.

The Jaguars’ offense produced a total of 342 yards against the Colts. On third downs, the Jaguars achieved a conversion rate of 25%. Notably, Travis Etienne Jr. led the rushing attack with 77 yards, while Trevor Lawrence passed for 241 yards.

The Jaguars’ defense concluded the game with four sacks and one interception. The team’s secondary conceded 215 passing yards, while their rush defense gave up 65 rushing yards.

Jaguars vs. Chiefs Player Prop

In the upcoming matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Jacksonville Jaguars, we can expect a high-scoring affair filled with fireworks. Calvin Ridley is poised to be one of the standout performers in this game. In his debut for Jacksonville, Ridley made a strong impression, securing eight catches on 11 targets for 101 yards and a touchdown. He’s clearly emerged as quarterback Trevor Lawrence’s go-to option, boasting a 34.4% target share.

Given this chemistry and the likelihood of a back-and-forth game, Lawrence may rely on Ridley even more than usual. To support this expectation, consider that Detroit Lions’ receivers Josh Reynolds and Amon-Ra St. Brown each managed to surpass 68.5 receiving yards against the Chiefs last week. As the Jaguars’ No. 1 wide receiver, Ridley certainly has the potential to put up similar or even better numbers.

Jaguars vs. Chiefs Predictions

This could be one of the games of the week, and the Jaguars will be hungry to prove themselves as a legitimate contender in the AFC with a win over the reigning Super Bowl champs.

The Chiefs will get tight end Travis Kelce back in the lineup, but there’s still a chance that he’s not quite 100%. I’m not sure he can cure all of the issues Kansas City had in the opener against the Detroit Lions.

The Jaguars have this game circled and they are looking to come through in front of their fans, so let’s take the home team getting points in this matchup.
