There was talk going into the 2016 season about the Jaguars breaking out under then-coach Gus Bradley and making a push for a playoff spot after many years wandering in the football wilderness.

That’s not how things played out. The Jaguars opened the season with three straight losses and then followed a pair of wins with a nine-game losing streak that ended after they fired Bradley and named Doug Marrone the interim coach with two games left in the year. Marrone got the permanent job this offseason and the Jaguars have shown signs of that breakout with a 5-3 record heading into this Sunday’s game against the Chargers.
