5. At Dallas Cowboys
The Jaguars haven't faced the Cowboys since 2014 when the Boys gave the Jags the business in London. And the Jaguars haven't traveled to Dallas since 2010. This will be a fun matchup as the Cowboys highly touted offensive line will face off with the Jaguars defensive line, widely considered the best in the NFL. Adding to the intrigue is the fact that Allen Hurns, who caught 189 passes for 2,669 yards and 21 TDs in a Jaguars uniform, figures to be the Cowboys number one receiver in 2018. Dak Prescott and Zeke Elliot should provide a big test for the Jaguars "Sacksonville" defense.
4. At Tennessee Titans
The Jaguars fiercest rival handed the Jaguars two big losses in 2017. Both teams made the playoffs last season and both will be looking to build off of their successful 2017 campaigns. The Titans ground and pound strategy was tough for the Jaguars to handle last season. Make no mistake about it - both times these two teams face each other in the 2018 regular season it'll be a physically taxing contest. This one takes place on the national stage - Thursday Night Football - and could have playoff and division implications as an early December game.
3. Vs Philadelphia Eagles (London)
The Jaguars second home, Wembley Stadium, has been good to the Big Cats lately. They've won three straight games in London, but will be tested in a major way by the reigning Super Bowl Champions. The Eagles boast a potent offense and a defensive line that was able to dominate the Patriots offensive line in the Super Bowl, something the Jaguars failed to do in the AFC Championship last year. If the Jaguars want to prove themselves to the rest of the NFL this year, beating the Eagles in London would be a great way to do it.
2. Vs Pittsburgh Steelers
The Jaguars host the Steelers for Sunday Night Football in mid November. The Jaguars beat the Steelers twice in Heinz Field last year, including a divisional round win that ended the Steelers 2017 season. This will be a huge grudge match and Steelers fans always show out in Jacksonville. The Jaguars seem to have a formula that works against the Steelers high flying offense, but a team that has Big Ben, Antonio Brown and Le'veon Bell should never be counted out. This game could have an impact on playoff seeding.
1. Vs New England Patriots
Myles Jack Wasn't Down.
A rematch of the AFC Championship in week two of the regular season will help set the tone for the Jaguars 2018 campaign. A 4:25 kickoff, this game will be seen by many around the country, and will be a chance for the Jaguars to prove that they are the new top dogs in the AFC.
Honorable mention: At Kansas City Chiefs
