The Jacksonville Jaguars came into the National Football League as an expansion team in 1995. Since then they have shown in relatively short order that they have what it takes to join the list of better teams in the league.
The Jaguars have always prided themselves on having a better than average to great defense. This includes a strong upfront defense against the run, as well as being good against the pass.
