The good thing about the Jacksonville Jaguars beating the Indianapolis Colts in the season finale is that their players and fans will leave 2021 with a good taste in the mouth. Sure, winning three games isn’t something to be proud but when you take into account all the dysfunction the  Jags had to put up with while Urban Meyer was at the helm, their resilience and ability not to fall apart must be commended. Also, their core of young players will be motivated to get better in 2022 knowing what winning feels like.

While it’s uncertain how different or similar the Jags next season, they at least know who their opponents will be. As usual, they will meet their AFC South rivals twice. They will also face off against the AFC West, the AFC North, the NFC East, the New York Jets, and the Detroit Lions.

Here’s how the Jaguars’ home slate for the 2022 season looks:

  • Houston Texans
  • Indianapolis Colts
  • Tennesse Titans
  • Denver Broncos
  • Las Vegas Raiders
  • Dallas Cowboys
  • New York Giants
  • Baltimore Ravens

And these are Jacksonville’s away games.

  • Houston Texans
  • Indianapolis Colts
  • Tennesse Titans
  • Detroit Lions
  • New York Jets
  • Kansas City Chiefs
  • Los Angeles Chargers
  • Philadelphia Eagles
  • Washington Football Team

While the dates and the times of each game haven’t been announced yet, it’s not too early to predict how the Jaguars’ season will play out. Trevor Lawrence should be better in Year 2, Jacksonville has the top overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft and the third-most cap space in the league, according to Spotrac. All those factors should help the Jags win a few more games in 2022. Here’s a look at how the season could unfold.
