Jaguars open with 4 playoff teams and get Sunday and Monday night games in 2024

JACKSONVILLE, Florida. – The Jaguars knock out four returning teams in the playoffs, play two prime-time games on the road and play back-to-back games in London again as the 2024 season schedule unfolds Wednesday night.

The Jaguars open the season at the Dolphins, the third straight season they open on the road. Next up is a visit from the Browns, then a trip to the Bills for a Monday Night Football showdown in Week 3. It’s back-to-back years of Monday Night Football for the Jaguars for the first time since 2010-11. Jacksonville lost 34-31 to the Bengals last year on their first Monday night since 2011.

They return home in Week 4 to face defending AFC South champion Houston to cap off a very difficult opening month.

Three of the first four games will be played away from EverBank Stadium, a dose of good news and bad news. The bad (apart from that tough opening) is that it will be a tough start before heading to London in weeks 6 and 7. But for home fans, the trade-off is three fewer sweltering September days with a blow dispatch at 1 p.m. in Jacksonville.

Jacksonville has a manageable stretch in Weeks 5-7, hosting the Colts, then back-to-back games from London to Chicago (at Tottenham Hotspur as a visitor), then against the Patriots in Week 7 at Wembley Stadium as a as home team. The Jaguars will face second-year starting quarterback Anthony Richardson, then rookies Caleb Williams and Drake Maye, respectively, in those three games.

The Packers and Jordan Love visit in Week 8 and Jacksonville plays at Philadelphia on Sunday Night Football in Week 9.

Their bye comes in Week 12, the final bye week in the franchise’s 30-year history. They face NFC North teams Minnesota in Week 10 and Detroit in Week 11 before the break. The Jaguars close out with two games against rival Tennessee in the final five weeks of the season. Houston and quarterback CJ Stroud come to town in Week 13 and the Jets and Aaron Rodgers are here in Week 15. Jacksonville will play at Allegiant Stadium for the first time when it visits the Raiders in Week 16 . The conclusion of the regular season in Indianapolis.

Jacksonville is coming off a 9-8 season that ended badly. The Jaguars started 8-3, then fell off at the end and missed the playoffs.
