The 1999 Jacksonville Jaguars

The 1999 Jacksonville Jaguars had one of the more spectacular seasons, especially considering the franchise was only five years old. Quarterback Mark Brunell was hitting all receivers and Running Back Fred Taylor was blazing past Linebackers and DBs. The Jaguars finished the season with a record of 14-2. They went on to win their first playoff game before losing their second and going home; giving them a total record of 15-3 counting the playoffs.

One of the more interesting things regarding that 15-3 record is who they lost those three games to. The first loss came against the divisional rival the Tennessee Titans. Later in the season the Jaguars met the Titans for their rematch and unfortunately (for Jacksonville) they came out on the short end of the stick again. Still, finishing the season with a record of 14-2 was pretty impressive and everyone was excited about the team’s prospects in the playoffs. In the divisional round the Jaguars went up against Dan Marino and the Miami Dolphins and destroyed their opponents by the score of 62-7. This brought Jacksonville to its next playoff game, against Tennessee who had already beaten them twice. The Titans were victorious again and the Jaguars season was over.

The Jacksonville Jaguars finished that season with a record of 15-3 with all three losses coming to the same team; the Tennessee Titans. The Titans became the first team ever to beat an opponent in three separate games during one season.
