The Jacksonville Jaguars are going to the 2022-23 NFL Postseason as the AFC South Champions. They have done marvelous things so far this season and have taken a big step as an organization.

Now, as a result, they are going to host the Los Angeles Chargers in a home playoff game. This is the first time that the Jaguars will be in the postseason since the 2017 campaign.

Although they do have a chance to win this game, the future is the most important thing to keep in mind for this thing.

Speaking of the future, the opponents for the 2023 season are officially official now that this regular season has come to an end.

The Jaguars will face these teams at home

  • Kansas City Chiefs
  • San Francisco 49ers
  • Cincinnati Bengals
  • Baltimore Ravens
  • Carolina Panthers
  • Tennessee Titans
  • Indianapolis Colts
  • Houston Texans

The Jaguars will face these teams on the road:

  • Pittsburgh Steelers
  • Buffalo Bills
  • Cleveland Browns
  • New Orleans Saints
  • Tennessee Titans
  • Indianapolis Colts
  • Houston Texans

The Jacksonville Jaguars are set to play some amazing teams next season.

Of course, they will play their division rivals twice each. One will be in Jacksonville and the rest will be at their home stadiums across the AFC South. It projects to be a weak division once again which is great news for the Jaguars.

This will be an incredibly tough schedule for them. Obviously, it is a first-place schedule so they will face the Kansas City Chiefs, Buffalo Bills, and Cincinnati Bengals who might be the three best teams in the NFL. They will also add in the rest of the AFC North to go with the Bengals.

The NFC Division that they are getting is the NFC South which is a relief. That was the one division worse than the AFC South this year and all of those teams have cloudy futures. If Tom Brady doesn’t return to the Buccaneers, it is hard to see the Jaguars as underdogs against any of those.

The Jaguars have an extra home game this year as the AFC gets that home matchup against an NFC team that isn’t in the division they are playing as a whole but also came in the same place as them. For the Jaguars, that will be the first-place San Francisco 49ers which is a tough draw.

That is what happens when you come in first place though. In order to be a great team you need to beat great teams. If the Jaguars return to the postseason in 2023-24, that will mean that they took even bigger steps.

Trevor Lawrence wants to be mentioned in the same breath as Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, and Joe Burrow. Well, he gets to play against all of them in 2023 which should be amazing to watch.

Hopefully, Doug Pederson’s team shows up ready to go. Before that, there is some other business to take care of here this season.
