Week 16: NY Jets vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

This is the matchup every NFL fan loves to watch. The No. 1 overall pick, Trevor Lawrence, versus the No. 2 overall pick, Zach Wilson. Everybody will be talking about the result of this matchup and how it will dictate the future of the Jets and Jaguars.

It is also, arguably, one of the biggest games of Wilson's young career. Players always take mental notes of who was picked ahead of them in the NFL Draft, and it's not hard for Wilson to remember the one player who was picked ahead of him.

Lawrence and Wilson will be compared to each other for the rest of their careers. Luckily, this game is in New York and Jets fans can cheer loud and proud for their QB.

Hearing the support from the fans while Wilson plays against the No. 1 pick will help him truly know how much he is wanted.

The Jaguars are in a similar position to the Jets entering this season. They have a young team and are hoping they have just found their franchise quarterback. However, the Jets should come out with a win in this one.

Playing in front of the home crowd gives the Jets a slight edge in this game. At this point, this game can be considered a toss-up.

But, if the Jets want to become a consistent playoff team, they need to win these 50/50 games when they are at home.
