The NFL released the 2014 preseason schedule on Wednesday, and the Jacksonville Jaguars are playing teams they are familiar with for the most part. Here’s what it looks like:
Week 1 (8/7-8/10): Tampa Bay at Jacksonville
Week 2(8/14-8/18): Jacksonville at Chicago (8:00 PM Thursday, August 14 on ESPN)
Week 3(8/21-8/24): Jacksonville at Detroit
Week 4(8/28): Atlanta at Jacksonville
The Jaguars usually play an in-state rival every preseason, so Tampa Bay makes sense. The Jaguars have played the Falcons in their final exhibition game over the last couple of years so that trend will continue. The only noteworthy thing about the release of the schedule is a nationally televised game on a Thursday night against the Bears. Even though it’s a preseason game, it’ll be nice to see a largely new-look Jacksonville team on the field in the national spotlight.
