The 2022 NFL regular season is out and while the Jacksonville Jaguars already knew who their opponents would be, they can go ahead and set the dates of the games on the calendar. Per Sporting News, the Jags earned a favorable slate, as the clubs they will be facing off against had had a collective 135-153-1 record and a .469 winning percentage last year, which is the weakest in the AFC this upcoming season.
Having said that, not everything will be sunshine and rainbows for Jacksonville, as they will play against a few formidable teams and these three will be the most difficult ones in the 2022 season.
No. 1 most difficult game in Jaguars schedule: Week 15 vs Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys went 12-5 in 2021 after winning just managing to win six games the season. The main reason for the uptick in wins was the return of quarterback Dak Prescott from an ankle injury.
With Prescott at the helm, the Boys field the best offense in the league. Even though they traded wide receiver Amari Cooper to the Cleveland Browns, Dallas will still be able to put points on the scoreboard at ease. After all, they re-signed Michael Gallup and tight end Dalton Schultz and CeeDee Lamb remains on the roster.
The Jaguars have a solid cornerback trio in Shaquill Griffin, Darious William, and an ascending Tyson Campbell. However, that might not be enough to stop the Cowboys’ aerial attack. The game will be a TIAA Bank Field but that hasn’t proven to be much of an advantage over the last two years, winning a measly two games. The defense would have to have a dominant performance for Jacksonville to get the ‘W’ but it’s hard to see Dallas losing this one.
