The 2018 NFL schedule has officially been released and we can finally breakdown the Jacksonville Jaguars schedule, knowing the order in which they’ll be playing their opponents. We knew a couple of games ahead of time, like the London game and we got a hot tip about a prime time game with the Pittsburgh Steelers in November.
The Jaguars open up on the road with Tom Coughlin returning to New York. They follow it up with a re-match of the AFC Championship game to start a three-game home stand in sweltering September against the Titans and Jets.
The Jaguars bye is after the London game mid-season, which is probably the best spot for them, and have a series of alternating home/road games, finishing up the season on the road against the Dolphins and Texans, of which the Miami game could end up on a Saturday.

Flexible scheduling: NFL flex scheduling can occur as soon as Week 5. The most notable games are those moved into and out of Sunday Night Football, but we also see games rotated between early and late on the regular 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. time slots. It’s worth noting that the NFL is only allowed to flex no more than two games between Week 5 and Week 10.
