The 2023 NFL schedule has been released in full. We knew the opponents of each team but now we can put some dates and times to certain matchups which is always fun.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are expected to be one of the better teams in the AFC. In order to do that, they need to take care of their business in the regular season.

Jacksonville has talent in the right places but they have to prove it for another year. 2022 is going to just carry over into 2023 without being prepared.

There are a few teams on this schedule that should be good matchups for the Jaguars. These are games that should be free wins for them in 2023:

1. Week Three - Home Vs Houston Texans

The Houston Texans are a team that the Jacksonville Jaguars must beat.

The Jacksonville Jaguars play in a really weak division. They should, in theory, go 6-0 vs their division rivals in 2023.

With that in mind, there is one really weak link in the division. Although they should be improved, the Houston Texans are the worst of the bunch on paper. They are going to be starting a rookie quarterback and the Jaguars need to take advantage.

This should be a game in which Jacksonville takes their talents and uses them to their advantage. This week three game at home against the Texans should be just what the Jags need early in the season.

The fact that this game comes after a tough matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs in week 2 might be perfect for them. If the Jaguars want to be considered this elite team, they need to beat bad teams like the Texans with no hesitation.
