Week 13 Rooting Interests

Of course you want the Jaguars to beat the Giants on Sunday afternoon. We're going to look at the rest of the games and who Jaguars fans should root for this weekend and why.

We know the situation that the Jacksonville Jaguars are in; Playing out the string and hoping for the best draft pick. Although you can’t cheer against the home team, we can evaluate which other games would help the Jaguars out and set your rooting interests accordingly.

Redskins-Colts

The Redskins take on the Colts and since the Jaguars played and lost to both, this has no bearing in a tie-break situation. Although it’s a long shot, the ‘Skins have three wins and the Jaguars could potentially catch them, so we’re hoping for Colt McCoy and the Redskins to pull an upset. it’s always fun to root against the Colts anyway.

Titans-Texans

The Titans take on the Texans in another horrible AFC South matchup. As unnatural as it seems, cheer for the Titans as they have just two wins.

Browns-Bills

Since the Jaguars played the Browns earlier this year, it would help the team in a potential tie-break if the Browns lost as many games as possible.

Bengals- Buccaneers

Since the Jaguars played the Bengals earlier this year, it would help the team in a potential tie-break if the Bengals lost as many games as possible.

Raiders-Rams

The Jaguars have the same record as the Raiders and it would be nice to see the Raiders win as many games as possible.

Saints-Steelers

Since the Jaguars played the Steelers earlier this year, it would help the team in a potential tie-break if the Steelers lost as many games as possible.

Panthers-Vikings

The Jaguars would have to finish by winning four of their next five to surpass Carolina. As unlikely as that is, a Panthers victory would put that to bed.

Cardinals-Falcons

The Jaguars would have to finish by winning four of their next five to surpass Atlanta. As unlikely as that is, a Falcons victory would put that to bed.

Dolphins-Jets

With the Jets having just a pair of victories, they are certainly in contention for the first-overall pick. Obviously any Jets victory is beneficial to the Jaguars.
