The full NFL schedule is set to be released on Thursday afternoon around 8 p.m. EST, but the Jacksonville Jaguars have gone ahead and released the dates and times for their 2016 preseason schedule. We already knew that Week 3 for the Jaguars was going to be a nationally televised game against the Cincinnati Bengals, but the full schedule has now been released so we can begin our tailgating plans.

Thursday, August 11: at New York Jets (WJXT), 7:30 p.m.

Saturday, August 20: home against Tampa Bay Buccaneers (WJXT), 7:30 p.m.

Sunday, August 28: home against Cincinnati Bengals (NBC-local 12), 8 p.m.

Thursday, September 1: at Atlanta Falcons (WJXT), 7 p.m.

It's a pretty typical looking preseason schedule for the Jaguars, with a couple of games against more local teams (Tampa Bay and Atlanta), but there is a trip to New York in the first week.

The Week 3 match against the Bengals should be an interesting measuring stick, even if it's only the preseason still.
