In fact, the Jaguars get to start the season against the two teams that were as bad as they were last season as they travel to take on the Oakland Raiders the second Sunday of the season. The first two games should serve as a nice primer for what may end up being one of the tougher schedules in the NFL in 2013.
Bradley, the new Jaguars head coach, will return to his former home in Week 3 as the Jaguars travel to play the Seattle Seahawks team he spent the past four seasons as defensive coordinator. In fact Bradley’s knowledge of the NFC West should help the Jaguars as they are scheduled to play the entire division this season.
The only premier matchups on the Jaguars schedule this season are their Week 8 trip to London for their first year of a four year series abroad in which they will take on the San Francisco 49ers and their only primetime appearance at home for a Thursday night contest against the Houston Texans in Week 14.
The Jaguars will also rack up frequent flyer miles this season as they are schedule to travel to Oakland, Seattle, Denver and London which are four of the longest trips teams will have to take this year. Fortunately for the Jaguars, the Oakland and Seattle games are in consecutive weeks and they have a bye scheduled for the week after their trip to London.
