Jacksonville Jaguars Form

Jacksonville are riding a six-game win streak as they attempt to knock off the Chiefs in Kansas City.

The Jaguars sat 4-8 after a 40-14 blowout defeat in Detroit in Week 13, but their response to that loss was emphatic.

They won a huge AFC South showdown in Tennessee, 36-22, a week later, and backed that up with a 40-34 overtime upset of Dallas at home.

Jacksonville then kept their late surge going on the road over the next two weeks as their defense shut down the opposition.

The Jags downed the Jets 19-3 in New York and then travelled to Houston and recorded a dominant 31-3 win over the Texans.

That set up a winner-takes-all showdown with Tennessee in Week 18, with the victory taking the AFC South crown and a place in the postseason.

Jacksonville took it in dramatic fashion as a late fumble return for a touchdown earned them a 20-16 victory.

There would be even more drama on Super Wildcard Weekend as they staged an historic fightback to advance.

The Jaguars came back from 27-0 down to beat the Los Angeles Chargers 31-30, with Riley Patterson converting a game-winning 36-yard field goal as time expired.

Kansas City Chiefs Form

Kansas City finished the regular season record with a 14-3 record that earned them a first-round bye.

The Chiefs dropped a couple of games before the bye, but have been in red-hot form since that break.

They have won nine of their 10 games – a run that includes a win over Saturday night’s opponents, Jacksonville.

Kansas City’s sole defeat during this sequence came when they lost 27-24 at Cincinnati in December 4, and since then they have won five consecutive games.

They bounced back from that loss with a 34-28 win at division rivals Denver, and then battled past Houston for a 30-24 overtime win on the road.

The Chiefs’ next victory was a little more convincing as they returned home to beat Seattle 24-10.

That was followed by a narrow 27-24 home win against the Broncos in Week 17, taking their win streak to four games.

Kansas City were then able to make it five-in-a-row in their regular season finale, securing the number once seeding in the AFC half of the playoffs.

The Chiefs made light work of the Raiders in Las Vegas, taking a 24-3 lead into half-time before eventually running out 31-13 winners.
