With the NFL regular season fast approaching, we at SportsUntapped are taking our crystal balls out of storage and examining each team’s full 16-game schedule to prognosticate how the 2011 season will play out. We’ll look at all 32 teams and reveal each one’s final record. Next up: David Garrard and the Jacksonville Jaguars, who’ll try to build upon last year’s surprising .500 record and second-place finish.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Last year’s record: 8-8.

Vegas Over/Under on 2011 Regular Season Wins: 6.

First four games:
Sept. 11 Tennessee, 1 p.m.
Sept. 18 at N.Y. Jets, 1 p.m.
Sept. 25 at Carolina, 1 p.m.
Oct. 2 New Orleans, 1 p.m.

The Jaguars will probably be outclassed by the Jets and Saints, but should probably be able to take the Titans at home and the Panthers on the road for a 2-2 start.

Second four games:
Oct. 9 Cincinnati, 1 p.m.
Oct. 16 at Pittsburgh, 1 p.m.
Oct. 24 Baltimore, 8:30 p.m.
Oct. 30 at Houston, 1 p.m.

After the Bengals at home the schedule gets real tough for the Jaguars, so it looks like they’ll be 3-5 at the halfway point.

First four games of the second half:

Nov. 6 BYE
Nov. 13 at Indianapolis, 1 p.m.
Nov. 20 at Cleveland, 1 p.m.
Nov. 27 Houston, 1 p.m.
Dec. 5 San Diego, 8:30 p.m.

The bye before visiting the Colts should help the Jags keep it close, but an upset there seems unlikely. This will probably be another 1-3 stretch to drop them to 4-8.

Last four games:

Dec. 11 Tampa Bay, 1 p.m.
Dec. 15 at Atlanta, 8:20 p.m.
Dec. 24 at Tennessee, 1 p.m.
Jan. 1 Indianapolis, 1 p.m.

Here too it’s hard to see more than one win for the Jags, so it looks like Jacksonville won’t be able to come close to matching last year’s .500 record — 5-11 looks a lot more realistic.
