The Jacksonville Jaguars have been one of the worst teams in the NFL for the past four seasons, struggling to win even five games in any year during that span. While it’s been ugly, the 2015 season offers a chance for the Jags to enjoy easily their best season since an 8-8 finish in 2010. Blake Bortles wasn’t consistent as a rookie last year, but there was enough progress for Jacksonville’s franchise quarterback to promote optimism, while head coach Gus Bradley seems to have finally pieced together a rock solid defense. A serious jump is going to fall on the shoulders of Bortles, while the Jaguars will also need to find a way to improve their running game and offensive line play. With some of the disappointment through the past few seasons, Jaguars ticket prices won’t be too high on the secondary market this season.
Surprisingly, the most expensive Jaguars game this season will come against the Tennessee Titans in Week 11. Jaguars vs Titans tickets for the Thursday Night Football game have a get-in price of $69. The San Diego Chargers will bring the least expensive tickets to EverBank Field this season. The get-in price for Jaguars vs Chargers tickets is $32.
The Jaguars will want to try to get off to a fast start in 2015, as the schedule gets nasty after their two home games to start the year. They travel to New England to battle the defending champion Patriots right away in week three, which is the first of a brutal three-pack road trip. The Buccaneers present a winnable game to end that road trip, while the Texans aren’t an unbeatable home matchup in Week 6.
Jacksonville, again, will be giving up a home game to play a week in London. This year, the Jaguars will take on the Buffalo Bills in Week 7 at Wembley Stadium.
Once Jacksonville comes back after their week off, they’ll be greeted with two more rough road games against the Jets and Ravens. Jacksonville gets a weak Tennessee Titans team twice in the second half of their schedule, but that’s arguably the only easy part of of the stretch run, which ends with road contests in New Orleans and Houston. Jacksonville should be improving from within, while the addition of explosive tight end Julius Thomas could make their offense much more of a threat than people think. That may still leave the playoffs as a pipe dream, but if Jacksonville can turn the tables on the road, they might be able to double their wins from a year ago.
