After having three nationally televised prime-time games in 2011, the Jaguars found out that they will only play on national television once in 2012 when the NFL announced the 2012 schedule Tuesday evening.
The Jaguars one prime-time game will be at EverBank Field on Nov. 8 against AFC South rival Indianapolis Colts, a Thursday night game that will be on the NFL Network.
Some other interesting games on the Jaguars schedule are new head coach Mike Mularkey‘s return to the site of his first head coaching job on Dec. 2 at the Buffalo Bills. One week later, the New York Jets come to Jacksonville marking Tim Tebow‘s first appearance at EverBank Field since the Denver Broncos came to Jacksonville for the 2010 season opener.
