Way too early 2024 AFC South Power Rankings

The Colts look like they may be in one of the toughest divisions in football next season.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars still have plenty of time – and talent – to turn things around after an underwhelming 2023 season, but the clock's ticking for them in a way that no other AFC South team has to deal with currently. Lawrence's rookie contract is almost up, and things typically get a lot harder for NFL teams once they're paying their QBs market rate, even if those QBs are worth every penny – which Lawrence is. There are already plenty of questions about Doug Pederson's future in Jacksonville, which surely won't get any quieter if the Jags get off to a slow start next season. All that being said, they have more than enough talent to bounce back, and outside of a truly disastrous season, will probably be playing meaningful division games in December.
