The Jacksonville Jaguars are not wasting any time improving their roster.
They are hoping that top overall selection Travon Walker and fellow first-round pick Devin Lloyd will help upgrade their defense.
The Jaguars also brought in Christian Kirk and Zay Jones to give Trevor Lawrence more options downfield.
Jacksonville also hired head coach Doug Pederson, who won Super Bowl LII with the Philadelphia Eagles.
The team hopes that these additions will help them compete against the division rival Indianapolis Colts, Houston Texans, and Tennessee Titans.
Now that their schedule for the 2022 season is out, Jaguars fans are already predicting the team’s win-loss record after the regular season.
Their die-hard supporters are optimistic that the team will do better because the Urban Meyer drama is over.
However, broadcast networks are still uncertain if they are primetime-worthy
A quirky streak continues: 2022 marks the 11th straight season that the Jaguars will not play on Monday Night Football.

ESPN’s Field Yates tweeted, “A quirky streak continues: 2022 marks the 11th straight season that the Jaguars will not play on Monday Night Football.”
Yates noted that Jacksonville’s last Monday Night Football appearance was on October 24, 2011.
They defeated the Baltimore Ravens in that game, 12-7.
This year, they won’t have Monday night games and will only have one primetime game all season.
That number puts them in a tie with the Texans, New York Jets, New York Giants, Carolina Panthers, and Atlanta Falcons.
It’s easy to see the common denominator between those teams.
Jaguars On The Right Path
While they are seasons away from returning to the playoffs, the Jaguars will put up a better fight in 2022 because of their upgraded roster.
They can also play spoiler for teams seeking a postseason berth, like they did against the Indianapolis Colts.
However, Pederson won’t let them go down without a fight, especially after tasing Super Bowl success.
