There are Cinderella stories, and then one step further are the Jacksonville Jaguars.
And I do not say it because they are not a good team – they were never losing to the Steelers – but mostly because of their recent history.

In 2011, the Jaguars had the fifth-worst record in the league, in 2012, the second-worst record, the third-worst record in both 2013 and 2014, the fifth-worst record in 2015 and the fourth-worst NFL record in the past. season.
And today they are going to a Super Bowl game, and Jalen Ramsey – I want more players like him – is shouting at his fans that they’re going to win everything.
The confidence comes out through the pores, and no wonder considering that his supposed weak link is his quarterback, and they put 75 points to the Steelers in his two visits to Pittsburgh.
In fact this past Sunday, the Jaguars had 61 snaps, and only one move had negative yardage, and that was when Blake Bortles knelt at the end of the first half.
The reality is that with Marshal Bortles, who has had good game passages this season, many Jaguars fans never dreamed of being here; It is more likely that they signed an 8-8 campaign after finishing the previous year with a 3-13 record.
Interestingly Jacksonville spent three days at Foxborough in August doing joint practices with the Patriots, and now they are returning to that headquarters five months later with the illusion more alive than ever.

In case anyone is wondering, the Jaguars paid 100 to 1 to win the Super Bowl before the start of the season, and in numerical terms is the biggest surprise in recent history. According to Las Vegas, the teams that come closest to having reached the last four when few thought it possible are: Falcons 2016 (80-1), Ravens 2008 (80-1), Panthers 2015 (60-1) and Patriots from 2001 (60 to 1).
