The 1999 season was the best in Jacksonville Jaguars‘ history as the club posted 15 wins and only three defeats en route to the AFC Championship Game.

Head coach Tom Coughlin hired Dom Capers as defensive coordinator and the Jaguars yielded the fewest points (217) in the NFL. Mark Brunell threw for more than 3,000 yards and wide receiver Jimmy Smith led the league with 116 receptions, which was also a franchise record.

There was just one problem — the Jaguars couldn’t beat division rival Tennessee, which handed Jacksonville all three of its losses, including a 33-14 defeat at ALLTEL Stadium in the AFC title tilt.
