2022 NFL schedule: Jacksonville Jaguars dates and times for all 17 games, key matchups, and notes
We have the Jacksonville Jaguars regular season schedule for the 2022 NFL season.
All 32 teams will once again play in 17 regular-season games, and just three preseason games (with a couple of exceptions) as laid out in the new collective bargaining agreement signed by the players and the NFL a couple of years ago.
For Jacksonville, the team will be one of the two teams — the Las Vegas Raiders as the other — to play four preseason games. The teams will face off in the NFL’s annual Pro Football Hall of Fame game prior to the enshrinement of the 2022 HOF class, including former Jaguars left tackle Tony Boselli.
The game is set for Thursday, August 4 at 8:00 pm ET.
Jacksonville will also play in just seven true “home” games this year, with one of their games to be played in London at Wembley Stadium for the first time since 2019. The team will face off against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Oct. 30 at 9:30 am ET. The game will be played nationally on ESPN+.
The AFC will play in just eight total home games this year as the NFL rotates its 17th game accordingly.

Key matchups and notes
- Jaguars to face off against Carson Wentz and the Commanders Week 1.
The Jaguars will kick off the season with an intriguing storyline as Wentz will face off against head coach Doug Pederson for the first time in his career. Wentz was selected by Pederson and the Eagles with the second-overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
He would play for the Jaguars’ head coach for four years from 2016-20 before Pederson was fired and Wentz shipped off to Indy.
Now, the team will meet again which should present plenty of intrigues as Pederson leads a team with an ascending QB in Trevor Lawrence. Wentz last played against the Jaguars as a member of the Colts. Jacksonville defeated the Colts, crushing their playoff hopes in Week 17 last year, 26-11.
- Jaguars to face off against the Eagles in Week 4
In another Pederson tie-in, the Jaguars will face off against the Eagles in Philadelphia where Pederson last coached in the NFL. He is certain to get a standing ovation as the head coach to bring a Super Bowl title to the city – or is he? That’ll be an intriguing matchup to watch as the “Pederson Revenge Game”
- Lawrence and Wilson face off in prime time in Week 16
Last year, the Jaguars faced off against the Jets and quarterback Zach Wilson, the No. 2 overall pick in last year’s draft. It was the first matchup between Lawrence (last year’s No. 1 overall pick) and Wilson. Wilson would go on to defeat the Jaguars 26-21. This year, the team will once again play the Jets in New York.
It will be interesting to see the development of both quarterbacks nearing the end of their second seasons in the league. The game will be played in front of a national audience on Thursday Night Football.
- The Jaguars are set to play against five teams that reached the playoffs in 2021, including the Cowboys, Raiders, Titans, Chiefs and Eagles. The team will play the Titans at home and in Nashville while facing off against the Cowboys and Raiders at home and the Eagles and Chiefs on the road.
- Jacksonville will yet again have just one primetime matchup set on the schedule. For what seems like an eternity, Jacksonville has been awarded just one primetime game, games that are featured on national television, either Sunday, Monday, or Thursday nights. The team will face off against the Jets on Thursday Night Football in Week 16.
- The Jaguars’ strength of schedule is tied for 26th toughest at 135-153-1 (.469) this year. The team will have an opportunity to improve on last year’s 3-14 record by facing off against some of the worst teams from last year. The team’s home schedule will be one to watch, however, as it’s graded to be the 11th-toughest this year.
