Poll: Predict Jaguars’ win total for 2022 NFL season

How will the Jacksonville Jaguars fare this season? Vote on their 2022 win-loss record.

The Jacksonville Jaguars’ schedule for the 2022 NFL season has finally been set, and the dates for every matchup was revealed last Thursday. The Jaguars have seven home games (excluding the game in London vs. Denver) and nine away games with their bye week coming in Week 11.

Jacksonville will obviously play the Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, and Tennessee Titans twice because they are division opponents, but it’s also the AFC South’s turn to face every team in the AFC West and NFC East.

That’s some bad luck for the Jaguars to have to play Kansas City Chiefs, Las Vegas Raiders, Los Angeles Chargers, and Denver Broncos because their division is the best in the league by far. However, to balance that out, Jacksonville gets to face one of the weaker NFC divisions with the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Commanders, and New York Giants. They also play a pair of fourth place teams from last season in the New York Jets and Detroit Lions.

The Jags should fare much better this season mainly due to all the additions they made in free agency and the draft. Fans should reasonably expect the team to win anywhere from nine to five games this season.

Below we have a poll for our readers to vote through. Also, feel free to comment and explain why you’re optimistic or not so optimistic about the Jags’ 2022 season.

Jacksonville Jaguars’ 2022 regular-season schedule

The Jaguars’ 2022 schedule has been released. As expected, they only have one prime-time game, which is a late one in Dec. against the Jets.

The full slate of schedules for all 32 NFL teams has been released. That includes the 2022 schedule for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

As previously reported, the Jags will open the season against the Las Vegas Raiders in the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio. Also as previously reported, they will start the regular-season with an away game against the Washington Commanders.

This season the Jags will play the AFC West and NFC West divisions in addition to the teams in their division, the AFC South, twice. They also will play the Detroit Lions and Baltimore Ravens to bring their schedule to 17 games.

Here are all the dates and times starting from their first preseason game to their last regular-season game:

  • The Jags will start their regular-season on the road for the second straight season, but this time it will be outside their conference.
  • The Jags once again have just one prime-time game and it will be in December against the Jets. That game, like their last prime-time game, will be an away game.
  • Every regular-season game in Jacksonville with a time will be at 1 p.m. However, the Jags’ last home game, which will be against the Titans, has a time that has yet to be determined.

WATCH: Highlights of Jaguars No. 1 pick Travon Walker

Here are some highlights of the Jags’ No. 1 pick in Travon Walker.

The Jacksonville Jaguars came into Thursday’s draft with the first overall pick for the second consecutive time in the last two seasons. However, they kept the suspense up for a while this time as the decision wasn’t as clear as it was last year when there was a generational quarterback in the mix.

Ultimately, the Jags went with Georgia defensive lineman Travon Walker, who was one of the key members of a national championship defense. Walker ultimately finished his 2021 season with 33 tackles (7.5 of which were for loss), and six sacks. In terms of his career stats, he accumulated 61 total tackles and 13 career sacks.

Walker caught the eyes of many when he impressed at the 2022 NFL Scouting Combine where he ran a 4.51 in the 40-yard dash and registered a 123″ broad jump figure at over 270 pounds. Clearly, that made many scouts curious about seeing if he has the potential to be the next big thing in terms of being a top NFL defender, but only time will tell.

Here are some highlights of Walker throughout his journey with the Bulldogs:

NFL to announce its 2022 schedule on May 12

Fans will find out the format of the Jags’ 2022 schedule in three weeks.

Fans who are eagerly anticipating the release of the 2022 NFL schedule won’t have to wait very long to find out the dates and details of the games up ahead for their favorite teams. On Thursday, the league announced that they would release their full schedule on Thursday, May 12, which is exactly three weeks away.

When it comes to the Jacksonville Jaguars schedule, fans already know a few details. They will start the NFL preseason for the whole league as they will take on the Las Vegas Raiders in Canton for the Hall of Fame game on Thursday, Aug. 4. Then when it comes to the regular season, they are set to take on the whole NFC East and AFC West, in addition to having two games against their three AFC South rivals.

Due to finishing fourth in their division, the Jags will also face the fourth-ranked teams from the AFC East (New York Jets) and AFC North (Baltimore Ravens) in addition to the Detroit Lions, who were the fourth seed in the NFC North.

Last season the Jags received one primetime game (Cincinnati Bengals) and will be looking to better that number this season. That game was a Thursday Night Football game that the Jags lost Week 4 by a score of 24-21.

Cardinals vs. Jaguars: 4 things to know about Week 3’s game

The Cardinals’ offense is red-hot and Jags fans are rightfully not looking forward to Sunday. However, if the Jags can figure out their offensive issues, they may can make it interesting. (Keyword: ‘may’)

The Jacksonville Jaguars have a tough one this week as they take on the Arizona Cardinals for their second consecutive home game at TIAA Bank Field. In fact, the argument could be made that no team is hotter than their Week 3 foes, who stand in the way of the team going 0-3.

The Cardinals will make a trip to North Florida with a 2-0 record and an offense that has yet to be stopped under quarterback Kyler Murray. As a result, the Jags have been deemed home underdogs by Vegas, and many believe they are headed into a game that will be extremely challenging.

Here are some other things to know heading into Sunday’s game as the Cardiac Cats try and get their first win:

Behind Enemy Lines: Week 2 Q&A with Broncos Wire

With the Jags and Broncos set to battle in a few days, we sat down with @ByJonHeath of @TheBroncosWire to discuss Teddy Bridgewater and company.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will enter their regular season home opener in need of a win after unexpectedly falling to the Houston Texans Week 1. That won’t be an easy task as they will face a Denver Broncos team that has even more talent than the one they faced Week 1.

The Broncos will have some momentum by their side after a 27-13 win over the New York Giants in Denver, a game where they showed they can get after it on defense and are a bit more experienced at the quarterback position than they previously were in 2020. However, to get a little more intel on them we spoke with Broncos Wire editor Jon Heath, who particularly discussed the receivers corps, some other players who Jags fans may not be as familiar with, and more.

Here is what he had to say about Vic Fangio’s group as they are a few days away from their first regular season away game.

Jaguars vs. Texans 2021 live stream: Time, TV schedule, how to watch online

With the Jags set to take the field for their regular season opener soon, here is how those of you at home can watch the action.

With a change taking place in terms of naming a head coach, the draft, and preseason all in the rear-view mirror, the moment Jacksonville Jaguars fans have all been waiting for is almost here. In about 13 more hours, the Urban Meyer and Trevor Lawrence era will begin at NRG Stadium as the team will take on their division rivals in the Houston Texans.

While the Jags will be among the NFL’s youngest teams, they have been viewed as the favorites for this game by most. The reason for that is because the Texans organization is significantly less talented than the ones of recent history.

Gone will be the Texans’ long-time leader in J.J. Watt when they take the field Sunday, while their offensive leader, Deshaun Watson, will be on the roster with no intentions to ever suit up for them again. Instead, starting for them will be journeyman veteran Tyrod Taylor, who is 1-0 against the Jags as a regular season starter (0-1 against them in the playoffs).

The Jags, on the other hand, should be further along into their rebuilding process after landing a player who most believes is the best prospect since Andrew Luck in Lawrence. With him taking the field Sunday, fans may be somewhat reminded of the Jags and Texans Week 1 game in 2017, which was the first time Watson, who was a rookie then, played in a regular season game.

While Lawrence will be taking the field for his first game, there will also be a lot of change on the defensive side. Not only will the personnel on the field be drastically different, but so will the schemes. The Jags will be led by first-time coordinator Joe Cullen on their end, while the Texans will be guided by a former NFL head coach in Lovie Smith. And while many eyes will be on the Jags’ offense and Lawrence, the defensive end will be an important key as well if the Jags are to win because they will need to make drastic strides from the unit they once were in 2020.

With a lot of anticipation built up from the fans of the Jags, Sunday’s game should be an exciting one, and here is how those of you at home can watch the action on television.

When: Sunday, Sep. 12 at 1 p.m. EDT

Where: NRG Stadium, Houston, Texas

Watch: CBS 47 (locally)

Listen: WJXL AM 1010 / FM 92.5 (locally), Sirius XM Radio (feed channel 385 for Jags, 230 for Texans)

Behind Enemy Lines: Week 1 Q&A with Texans Wire

Just like the Jags, the Texans made a variety of changes this offseason and to help fans familiarize themselves with their new group, we went behind enemy lines with the Texans Wire.

The Jacksonville Jaguars and Houston Texans were two of the worst teams in football last season, and as a result, both kicked off a rebuild this offseason. Now, after major changes to their coaching staffs and behind center, both teams will open the season against each other.

To help our readers familiarize themselves with the new-look Texans, we sat down with Texans Wire’s Mark Lane for some insight. Here are some questions he was able to answer for us about new coach David Culley, former Jags receiver Chris Conley, and more.

Jaguars 2021 schedule: Game-by-game win-loss predictions

With the first regular season game of the 2021 NFL season set to take place tonight, here is how we see the Jags’ season going for Urban Meyer and Co.

The time has come for the NFL to start their 2021 season as the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Bucs will take the field for the first regular season game of Week 1. As for Urban Meyer, Trevor Lawrence, and the Jacksonville Jaguars, their season will begin Sunday at 1 p.m. EST at NRG Stadium as they take on the Texans.

At this point, the web has been flooded with predictions for the Jags as the draft and training camp are behind them. However, on this end, we waited until Game 1 of the NFL season to factor in all of our offseason assessments and come up with our best guess as to what kind of season the Jags will have.

When looking at it from a week-to-week basis, here is how we see the Jags’ season going.

Jags will have all 3 of their preseason games nationally televised live

All of the Jags’ preseason games will air live on national television in 2021.

The NFL Network announced that they will be airing a record amount of 23 preseason games this season. Luckily for Jacksonville Jaguars fans, that will include their preseason games for Week 1 vs. the Cleveland Browns and Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys. With their Week 2 game against the New Orleans Saints already set to be on ESPN, that means the Jags will have three games that are aired live nationally.

Their preseason Week 1 matchup (against Cleveland) will take place Saturday at 7 p.m. EST. It will be their only home game of the preseason.

Their Week 2 preseason game will take place on Monday, Aug. 23 at 8 p.m. EST. Earlier today, a report surfaced stating that the Jags would also do joint practices with New Orleans on Aug. 20 and Aug. 21 (the Friday and Saturday before the game), but that wasn’t accurate as the NFL may have had communication issues on the matter.

Lastly, the Jags will travel to Dallas for a game that is set for a 1 p.m. kickoff. Like the Jags, they are also one of the more interesting teams to watch in the preseason as they are set to be on HBO’s “Hard Knocks.”

As fans are aware, the Jags drafted Trevor Lawrence first overall in April, and  thanks to NFL Network (and ESPN), there won’t be a shortage of opportunities for fans to see him. This preseason will also mark Urban Meyer’s first experience in the NFL, as the collegiate level is the highest he’s coached up until now.
