The Jacksonville Jaguars are traveling to play the New York Jets to open their 2016 preseason. It's a game that, to me, seemingly has more anticipation than I remember in a while, partly because of all the new faces on defense.
How will Dante Fowler, Jalen Ramsey, and Myles Jack do in their first real live NFL snaps? Can Blake Bortles knock the rust off quickly like he did in last year's preseason opener? How will the Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon rotation work?
HAPPY GAME DAY, EVERYONE!
How to watch the game
10:34 PM: We won even though we lost.
10:12 PM: A missed field goal! If Brandon Allen or Max Wittek can engineer a game-winning drive, it'll be LIT.
9:26 PM: Brandon Allen is in the game!
9:07 PM: Myles Jack my goodness.
8:30 PM: Is this Toby Gerhart?
8:15 PM: The Jets have scored. It's 10-7, but now the backups are coming in so... now it's time to see what kind of depth we have.
8:06 PM: The Jaguars are up 10-0. Blake Bortles is on the bench. No injuries to the starters. We won.
7:59 PM: My. God.

7:51 PM: Jason Myers with a nearly wide-left field goal. Jaguars winning 3-0!
7:45 PM: Too easy.
7:13 PM: Earl Wolff's story is incredible. Read more about it here.
7:30 kickoff against the jets. It's been 2 years since I played. I'm so blessed to have this opportunity. Thank you lord— Earl Wolff (@Ewolff28) August 11, 2016
6:49 PM: He's that bad, huh?
.@KimJonesSports just said Hackenberg, who the Jets spend a 2nd on to be their QB of the future, might not get any snaps tonight.— Raymond Summerlin (@RMSummerlin) August 11, 2016
6:09 PM: Still leaves Dante Fowler and Myles Jack.
Not playing tonight: WR Lawrence, CB Ramsey, RB Gray, FS Gipson, C Linder, OT Beachum, OL Edwards, WR Evans, DT Day #Jaguars— Mike Kaye (@mike_e_kaye) August 11, 2016
5:31 PM: We're just two hours away from kickoff and aside from the left side of the offensive line, a unit that could see a lot of shuffling is the defensive line. What will new defensive coordinator try in third down situations? What's his lightning package? How many packages is Sen'Derrick Marks going to be a part of this year?
4:30 PM: I'm. so. happy.

3:41 PM: YOU'RE DAMN RIGHT.
Jags Twitter is back. Really excited for another year.— Adam Kramer (@KegsnEggs) August 11, 2016
1:25 PM: What the Jaguars do on the left side of the line tonight will be very, very interesting.
John O makes a good point. Luke starting at LT tonight and then shifting to LG when Blake exits should be the plan. https://t.co/RB2k3KXzl4— TC Hanx (@HankJoness) August 11, 2016
9:38 AM: Bryan Walters.
With #Jaguars preseason about to start, who will be this year's Cap Capi? Who will be the player fans latch on to?— Michael DiRocco (@ESPNdirocco) August 11, 2016
8:50 AM: Rock. Hard.
