Week 5 will be the biggest test for the Jaguars (3-1) as they head to Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, Oct. 7 at 1 p.m to take on the Kansas City Chiefs (4-0).

The Chiefs just came off a win against the Denver Broncos last week that went down to the wire. The biggest story for the Chiefs and perhaps the NFL is rookie Quarterback, Patrick Mahomes II. The rookie out of Texas Tech has displayed his arm power and field vision throughout the season, even completing a pass with his opposite throwing hand. Mahomes currently leads the NFL in passing touchdowns with 14 and hasn’t recorded an interception yet.

The key for Mahomes is finding a window for passing when playing against the Jaguars defense. Travis Kelce and Tareek Hill are Mahomes’ key weapons but the Jags will be using a press defense to limit yardage.

The Jaguars defeated the New York Jets at home last week and Blake Bortles had a standout performance worth 388 passing yards and two passing touchdowns. Arrowhead Stadium is the hardest atmosphere to play at when on the road. Bortles has to continue his role as a game manager and move the chains with short passes and the occasional run if no receivers are open. Leonard Fournette will be out this week with a hamstring injury so T.J. Yeldon will be the main back on Sunday.

The Jaguars defense currently ranks first in the NFL, limiting opposing teams to 14 points per game. The Jaguars have to keep Mahomes on his toes and elevate their pass rush. By hurrying Mahomes, you have a higher chance for him to throw his first interception of the season. “Sacksonville” will be in full effect this coming Sunday.

Final prediction: Jaguars 21-Chiefs 17
