Excited Jags fans pack out Daily’s Place to watch clash against the Chiefs

Jaguars fans are cheering on their team from the stands at Daily’s Place as they watch the clash against the Chiefs in the AFC divisional round.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Jaguars fans are cheering on their team from the stands at Daily’s Place as they watch the clash against the Chiefs in the AFC divisional round.

While some fans packed up their gear and headed toward Kansas City, others opted to stay on home turf to witness the showdown with a few fans even saying that their experience at the Duuuval Divisional Watch Party might be more fun.

One fan told News4JAX that although she didn’t have the money to head there, being surrounded by all the Jags fans and cheering on her team from the comfort of her own city is a better feeling.

Thousands of fans packed out Daily’s Place. They took photos to remember this special occasion. They played games to claim prizes -- and among all the entertainment thrill, the fans agree that the Jags are coming back to the city with a win.

One fan, however, predicted the win wouldn’t happen until the final minute -- and that’s to keep the Chiefs on their toes.

“In order for the game to be good you gotta make it like it’s competitive. That’s exactly what you have to do. The Jags are going to make it competitive on this game,” Paris Robinson said.

By the end of the game, Robinson was still in good spirits despite her earlier prediction not becoming true. Thousands of eager -- and anxious -- fans watched as the Jags’ winning streak was put to an end after losing to the Chiefs by seven points.

“For everybody that thought the Jags weren’t going to make it this far, I will say this: Next year, we’re coming for the Superbowl,” Robinson insisted.

Other fans said they were hurt and trying to keep their head held high.

“It really hurt because the score was 27-20, which means it came down to one possession,” Erich Dennis said.

Gazenea Cade, however, said that she is going to be elated for the next few days, knowing that the Jags gave this game their all.

“It’s just amazing that we made it this far because for us to be a the bottom of our division and then we made it to the top, is amazing,” Cade said.

Annie Morales and other fans said even though the Jags didn’t win, they are going to stick by their team because they believe they’re going to have an even betters season next year.

“I think we’re going to be able to show everybody what the Jags are really about,” Morales said.
