2019 NFL schedule maker hates your team- Jaguars edition

Just like we did earlier on Thursday, it’s time to take a bit of a sarcastic look at what the NFL schedule maker did or didn’t do, to the Jacksonville Jaguars with the official release on Wednesday night.

Fans always have to have something to complain about and we’re sure plenty of Jaguar fans are not happy with a couple of the things that we’re about to list.

First, the Jaguars will try to get off to a good start, as they open the season by hosting the defending AFC West Champion, Kansas City Chiefs. No need to ease into 2019, huh? This as, the Jaguars defense will face an immediate challenge from Patrick Mahomes and Co.

However, after that opening game, Jacksonville is gone for three of the next four games starting with a week two matchup against rival Houston continuing with week four at Mile High against the Broncos and then, playing Carolina in Charlotte on October 6th.

There’s not much “Prime time love” in North Florida, as the Jags will only play once under the big lights, hosting the Titans on September 19th Thursday Night Football And, for now, baring a Sunday night NBC “Flex game,” which is highly unlikely, Jacksonville is once again relegated to mostly daytime AFC split feeds on CBS.

Didn’t the Jags signed the former Eagles Super Bowl MVP QB, Nick Foles?

Yet, the NFL didn’t want a Jets home game in North Florida on October 27th, for example, under the lights?

The Jags U.K. “home game” is against the Texans in a rematch on November 3rd, and then, off the bye week, they will play Andrew Luck and Indianapolis Colts, then Marcus Mariota and the Tennessee Titans both on the road.

This means, Jacksonville will spend a month away from TIAA Bank field from October 27th through December 1st.

And in a similar twist to their schedule as the Buccaneers, Jacksonville will play only one division game out of the final five and that is their finale’ at Indianapolis week 17.
