The Jaguars had plenty of doubters going into their Divisional Round game against the Steelers. They’d come out with a 45-42 win, something that nobody could have seen coming.
Well, except for Calais Campbell, that is.
He called the score last week to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, who tweeted the video of Campbell’s spot-on prediction.
Nobody saw a 45-42 #Jaguars win over the #Steelers. Nobody ... except Calais Campbell, who reminded me what he told me after last week’s game. This is so weird @Campbell93 pic.twitter.com/QifCN5AuSc— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) January 14, 2018
He also believes there’s more to it:
Campbell on calling the score: “I tell you, it just means we are on the right track. God is trying to tell me something. That was crazy.” More from that interview on @nflnetwork— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) January 14, 2018
Campbell, who was Stephen White’s Hoss of the Year, apparently has a talent we didn’t know about. He’s a damn psychic.
In describing Campbell, White wrote, “Campbell had a fantastic season, but Campbell has been so much more than just a pass rusher this year.”
Somehow, we have a hunch that even Stephen didn’t know that Campbell had this in him.
Campbell’s not the only guy associated with the Jaguars with these powers of foresight. Maurice Jones-Drew correctly predicted the Jaguars’ regular-season win over the Steelers back in Week 5. But there’s a new clairvoyant in town.

We have a new oracle in @Campbell93.https://t.co/JwgEZZgfAt
Of course, we all learned a lot about what the Jaguars are capable of in their big win against the Steelers. We’ll learn even more when they play the defending champion New England Patriots next week for a trip to the Super Bowl.
