Jacksonville Jaguars
We always like to talk about NFL teams that check the boxes, and the Jaguars certainly do that. Good fans with a great atmosphere? You know it. The stadium is pretty rad with a pool, too. The city is great.  And then you have the team. Loaded with talent. The defense looks really good. The offense has some great pieces. The quarterback situation can be exasperating, but you have to take the good with the bad. If you're looking for a team with a cool scene and a team that could make a run at the division title, then the Jaguars would be a pretty good choice. Jump quickly because the bandwagon is going to get crowded. - Adam Rank
