The Jacksonville Jags avenged their 2018 AFC Championship loss to the New England Patriots by throttling the club in Florida in Week 2. The Tom Coughlin managed Jags have to be feeling optimistic about their chances to conquer the entire AFC conference this season after a win like that.

A 24-3 2nd half lead is definitely a sign to the New England Patriots that they have holes on the defensive side of the ball. More emphatically, the Jaguars defense might believe that they can stop just about anybody out on the gridiron. Jacksonville's 2-0 start has put a hush to the harsh criticism their starting QB Blake Bortles had received, and is shifting spotlight towards a potential AFC contender to knock them off. The Jaguars were nothing less of excellent despite the absence of their starting HB Leonard Fournette. If his return comes to manifest against the Tennessee Titans this upcoming week, the Jags could very well start the 2018 season with a 3-0 record.

Docile and unassertive aren't words associated with an extremely successful New England Patriots franchise. After observing inadequacies on the offensive side of the ball in Week 2, administration decided to sign WR Josh Gordon to help spread the field in the passing game. It's hard to presume that New England won't be a contender in the AFC this season but the Miami Dolphins have established an early lead in the AFC East that they'll be looking to sustain through the rest of the season. Sunday, Brady was pummeled by the Jags pass rush, unable to get quick hitters to dictate the game due to the deficit New England faced on the scoreboard. With much respect, the Patriots will have to overcome the psychic that they were no matched for a physical Jaguars offense and defense in Week 2.
