On the same day that the Jaguars released their new uniforms, the NFL schedules for all 32 teams came out. Here’s a few things to look for in each of the Jaguars 16 games this season.
WEEK 1: @ New York Giants – 1 p.m. ET
Going up against an offense that may feature Odell Beckham Jr., Dez Bryant, and Saquon Barkley will be a tough test for the Jaguars secondary. However with the quarterback being either Eli Manning or a rookie, look for multiple interceptions to be thrown.
WEEK 2: vs. New England Patriots, 4:25 p.m. ET
A rematch of the AFC championship game will be a nice opportunity for the Jaguars to try and show last year wasn’t a fluke.
WEEK 3: vs. Tennessee Titans, 1 p.m. ET
The Jaguars lost both meetings with their AFC South rival last season, but that didn’t affect them from winning the division. With both the Titans and Houston Texans having improved tremendously on paper, divisional games will have more consequences in the standings.
WEEK 4: vs. New York Jets, 1 p.m. ET
In their third straight home game, the Jaguars defensive line will hopefully have the pleasure of dominating future Jets quarterback Baker Mayfield. This game is the Jaguars best chance for a blowout.
WEEK 5: @ Kansas City Chiefs, 1 p.m. ET
Kareem Hunt, Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, and the Patrick Mahomes-led Chiefs offense is going to be a very tough match-up for the defense. However, Andrew Norwell and the offensive line should be able to keep Justin Houston from pressuring Blake Bortles.
WEEK 6: @ Dallas Cowboys, 4:25 p.m. ET
The Jaguars will go up against Allen Hurns and his new squad after releasing him this free agency. Jalen Ramsey will to shut him down.
WEEK 7: vs. Houston Texans, 1 p.m. ET
This marks the second consecutive week in which the Jaguars will face a former player. Aaron Colvin signed with the Texans this off-season after the Jaguars signed A.J. Bouye away from the Texans a year ago.
WEEK 8: vs. Philadelphia Eagles in London, 9:30 a.m. ET
A London game against the defending Superbowl champs will be one of those games to wake up for. This is going to be the Jaguars most exciting game of the season.
WEEK 9: BYE
WEEK 10: @ Indianapolis Colts, 1 p.m. ET
Going up against the Colts and a healthy Andrew Luck would be fun as Luck is turnover prone as he is dominant. Aside from Luck, however, the Colts don’t have much talent and will likely lead to a blowout in favor of the Jaguars.
WEEK 11: vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, 8:20 p.m. ET
The Jaguars beat the Steelers in great fashion in both the regular season and playoff match-up last season. Forcing turnovers will be key to sustaining the winning formula.
WEEK 12: @ Buffalo Bills, 1 p.m. ET
Another playoff opponent from last year, the Jaguars beat the Bills 10-3. One of the Bills weakest position is the quarterback spot, which will make keeping Buffalo scoreless very possible.
WEEK 13: vs. Indianapolis Colts, 1 p.m. ET
Out of all the teams in the AFC South, the Colts are the team the Jaguars are most likely to sweep.
WEEK 14: @ Tennessee Titans, 8:20 p.m. ET
Tensions are usually high when these two teams face off. With both team’s playoff hopes on the lines, things will get chippy.
WEEK 15: vs. Washington Redskins, 1 p.m. ET
The Redskins traded for Alex Smith this off-season. Might make them better than Kirk Cousins did. No one really knows to be honest.
WEEK 16: @ Miami Dolphins, TBD
The Jaguars go across State to Miami. The Dolphins will have Ryan Tannehill back from injury, but moved Jarvis Landry and Ndamukong Suh, two of their biggest play-makers.
WEEK 17: @ at Houston Texans, 1 p.m. ET
The season finale against the Texans could very well decide who wins the division, or makes the playoffs!
