Zach Wilson could torch the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2021.

Jets vs Jaguars normally wouldn't be an exciting game to watch, but this year, it'll pit the top two picks in the 2021 NFL Draft against each other.

Fortunately for Wilson, his path to victory in this game will be much easier considering just how bad the Jaguars' defense was a season ago. While Jacksonville did make some improvements on that side of the ball, they're not going to transform into a good unit overnight.

The Jaguars had the second-worst total defense in 2020 and were dreadful on defense. They allowed the sixth-most passing yards, which sets up nicely for Wilson when he and Lawrence meet up for the first time in Week 16.

It's at the end of the season, which gives both quarterbacks plenty of time to hit their stride and that should make things more interesting.

Considering Jacksonville allowed over 30 points in nine of their games last year and failed to hold an opponent to under 20 all season, Wilson should have a field day when Lawrence and the Jags come to town for the second to last home game of the 2021 season.

The NY Jets are counting on Zach Wilson to be the prolific passer he was at BYU in 2020 and that's why they spent the No. 2 overall pick on him.

He has an opportunity to do something special this year and these three teams present his best chance to really stuff the stat sheet.
