The Jacksonville Jaguars announced their preseason opponents last week, but on Monday the official dates and kickoff times of the preseason were released, with the Jaguars getting a bit of favorable scheduling, all things considered.
2015 #Jaguars Preseason Schedule: Fri., 8/14 (7:30) vs. PIT; Sat., 8/22 (7:30) @ NYG; Fri., 8/28 (8:00) vs. DET; Thurs., 9/3 (7:30) @ WAS.— Tad Dickman (@Tdickman89) April 20, 2015
Both of the Jaguars home games fall on a Friday evening, including the nationally televised game against the Detroit Lions, which means a lot of fans won't have to worry about waking up early the next day to get back to the office.
Swig a beer for the working man for those who do, however.
It's also a nice little tip to the overall Jacksonville sports community, and I have no idea if the Jaguars lobbied for it or not, but both Jaguars preseason games fall a day before home games for the Jacksonville Armada FC, which will be on Saturday evening. It means downtown Jacksonville will be bustling on those weekends.
