Last year, as part of the League’s expansion of the regular season to 17 games, it was determined that, beginning with the 2022 season, up to four of the teams from the conference whose teams were eligible for a ninth regular-season home game would instead be designated to play a neutral-site international game each year.    

This year’s international series will kick off with games on back-to-back weekends at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.  

The New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings will each play in the UK for the third time.  Both teams have won on two previous occasions in the UK and will make their debut at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday, October 2.     

The following Sunday, October 9, the Green Bay Packers, NFC North champions for the third consecutive year, will face the New York Giants in their first international trip, becoming the 32nd NFL team to play in London since 2007.  The Giants will play in the UK for the third time, having won both the inaugural London game at Wembley Stadium in 2007 and the first game played at Twickenham Stadium in 2016.  This will be their first game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.  

London action shifts to Wembley Stadium on Sunday, October 30, when the Jacksonville Jaguars, who played at Tottenham last season, return to Wembley for the first time since 2019, having played there for seven straight seasons.  They will face the Denver Broncos who are making their first trip to the UK since they last played at Wembley in 2010.  

In the first-ever NFL regular-season game in Germany, the two-time Super Bowl champion and current NFC South champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers, led by quarterback Tom Brady, will face the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, November 13.  As previously announced, Munich and Frankfurt were chosen to stage regular-season games in Germany over the next four years.  The first game will take place at Allianz Arena – Home of FC Bayern Munich.    

The NFL will return to Mexico City on November 21 with Monday Night Football.  Estadio Azteca will host a matchup between NFC West rivals San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals in a rematch of the NFL’s first regular-season game played outside the United States.  In 2005, the teams played at Estadio Azteca with 103,467 fans in attendance, the eight largest crowd in NFL history.  

The full 2022 NFL Schedule next Thursday.

Jags’ Williams hopes to bring a championship mentality to Jacksonville

Former Los Angeles Rams cornerback Darious Williams is coming home after the Jacksonville native signed with the Jaguars.

According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, it’s a three-year deal worth $30 million.

The 28-year-old Williams is excited to be home, and he discussed it at via a Zoom conference Friday.

 “As soon as free agency hit, and my agent said the Jaguars were coming after me, of course, I had to put a little pause on there to see what other teams were talking about,” Williams said. “But, I just knew it would be nothing like coming home. I pretty much knew the whole time it was going to be the Jags. Of course, you still want to see just to see and not jump into stuff so quick. I couldn’t wait to come back home.”

The four-year veteran feels he will be a good fit in the Jaguars’ secondary.

“I am a pretty easy guy to get along with, so I feel like all of our issues will be communication,” he said. “If our communication is smooth, I feel like everything is going to be smooth. We have great athletes in that room. You have Shaquill Griffin, you have [Rayshawn] Jenkins, you have the youngin’ in Tyson Campbell. You have talent. There is talent everywhere. Me being experienced, I just want to help these guys. I just want them to help me the same. I am not any bigger than them, so I just want to be there to have their back to go through and help them, too.”

Williams, who won a Super Bowl last season with the Rams, hopes to bring a championship mentality to Jacksonville.

“Everybody can win. You just have to find the right pieces, pick the right pieces,” he said. “Coming home … We know the history. We do not even have to talk about that. But that is what you want to do. You want to be the first wave or another wave to start a great thing…

“Getting a ring is different because you get to see … I was on two different Super Bowl runs – the 2018 run and this last one. You get to see what it takes to get there and the journey there. Of course, that is something I want to bring to the Jags.”

Hopefully, for the Jaguars, who were 3-14 last season, Williams can bring a winning mentality to the city of Jacksonville.

Jags tag LT Cam Robinson

The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed the franchise tag on LT Cam Robinson, the team announced today.

Jacksonville tagged the five-year veteran for the second straight season. If the two sides cannot agree on a long-term deal by July 15, Robinson would make $16.5 million in 2022.

Robinson, 26, started in 14 games and helped the Jaguars tie for ninth in fewest sacks allowed in the NFL (32).

In 2020, he was part of an offensive line that helped rookie RB James Robinson tally the most scrimmage yards (1,414) and the second-most rushing yards (1,070) by an undrafted rookie in NFL history.

Jacksonville originally drafted Robinson in the second round (34th overall) of the 2017 Draft from the University of Alabama. 

Raiders, Jaguars to play in 2022 Hall of Fame Game

The Las Vegas Raiders will take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2022 Hall of Fame Game at 8 p.m. ET Thursday, Aug. 4 during Hall of Fame Enshrinement Week.

The matchup, which kicks off the National Football League’s 103rd season in the city where the League was born, will take place in Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium – adjacent to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The game marks the fourth appearance by the Raiders and the second for the Jaguars. The previous Hall of Fame Game for the Jaguars was the franchise’s first NFL game.

Raiders greats Cliff Branch and Richard Seymour, along with Jaguars legend Tony Boselli will be enshrined two days later as members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2022. LeROY Butler, Art McNally, Sam Mills, Dick Vermeil, and Bryant Young also will be enshrined at the annual ceremony, which this year will occur Saturday, Aug. 6, inside Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium.

The 2022 Hall of Fame Game will be the debut for head coach Josh McDaniels with the Raiders – and a homecoming. A Canton native, McDaniels played his home high school football games at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium when the facility was known as Fawcett Stadium. Doug Pederson, who guided the Philadelphia Eagles to a win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII, will be making his first game appearance as head coach of the Jaguars.

Jaguars hire Doug Pederson as head coach

The Jacksonville Jaguars have hired former Eagles head coach Doug Pederson, the team announced Thursday night.  

Jacksonville had interviewed several candidates, including Buccaneers OC and former Jaguars QB Byron Leftwich, who reportedly took himself out of consideration for the job.

Pederson will take over for Urban Meyer, who the team fired in December after less than one season. Darrell Bevell was named the interim head coach for the rest of the 2021 season.

“Doug Pederson four years ago won a Super Bowl as head coach of a franchise in pursuit of its first world championship,” owner Shad Khan said via a press release from the team. “I hope Doug can replicate that magic here in Jacksonville, but what is certain is his proven leadership and experience as a winning head coach in the National Football League. It’s exactly what our players deserve. Nothing less.

“Combine this with his acumen on the offensive side of the ball, and you have why I am proud to name Doug Pederson the new head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars. I know our fans will warmly welcome Doug and his family to Duval, and I personally look forward to having Doug as part of everything we envision for the team, downtown, and community in the years ahead.”

Pederson, 54, joins the Jaguars after most recently spending five seasons as the head coach (2016-20) of the Philadelphia Eagles, compiling a 46-39-1 record during the regular season and postseason. During his time in Philadelphia, the Eagles made the postseason in three consecutive seasons (2017-19) and won two NFC East titles (2017 and 2019). In 2017, Pederson led the Eagles to their first-ever Super Bowl Championship in Super Bowl LII with a 41-33 victory against the Patriots. 

Ultimately, Pederson was fired by the Eagles following the 2020 season after Philadelphia finished 4-11-1. He would sit out the 2021 season.

Before arriving in Philadelphia, Pederson served as the offensive coordinator of the Kansas City Chiefs from 2013-15, helping the team post a 31-17 regular-season record over three seasons.

A 12-year NFL veteran, Pederson played quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, Miami Dolphins, Philadelphia Eagles, and Cleveland Browns.

 

2022 opponents for all 32 NFL teams

A complete list of home and away matchups for the 2022 regular season was issued Thursday by the NFL.

Each team will play 17 regular-season games (and three preseason games) as follows:

  • Home and away against its three division opponents (six games).

  • The four teams from another division within its conference on a rotating, three-year cycle (four games).

  • The four teams from a division in the other conference on a rotating, four-year cycle (four games).

  • Two intraconference opponents based on the prior year’s standings (two games). These games match a first-place team against the first-place teams in the two same-conference divisions the team is not scheduled to play that season. The second-place, third-place and fourth-place teams in a conference are matched in the same way each year.

  • One interconference opponent based on the prior year’s standings on a rotating four-year cycle (one game). These games match a first-place team from one division against a first-place team in an opposite-conference division that the team is not scheduled to play that season. The second-place, third-place and fourth-place teams in each division are matched in the same way each year.

    The home conference for this game will rotate each season, with the NFC teams hosting the game in 2022.

    The scheduling formula implemented in 2002 with realignment guarantees that all teams play each other on a regular, rotating basis.

    The 2022 schedule, with playing dates and times, will be announced in the spring.

The following are the 2022 scheduling rotation and team-by-team opponents.

Jags’ Lawrence: ‘I plan on being here for a long time’

It didn’t last long, but based on what happened in the first 13 games on and off the field, firing Urban Meyer was probably the right thing to do for owner Shad Khan and the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Meyer was fired Thursday morning, and OC Darrell Bevell was named the interim coach for the rest of the season.

“There’s been some drama; there’s been some distractions,” Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence said Thursday. “You can’t ever go back, though; you just have to move forward. Where we’re at right now, [Interim Head Coach], Coach Bev[ell] ‘s our head coach the rest of the reason, and I have a lot of respect for Bev and who he is. He’s earned my respect, so we’re going to all follow him. I’m excited about these last four games and just to go play our best and finish with some momentum.”

Despite all the drama, the number one pick says he has a lot of respect for Meyer.

“He’s great. [I] have a lot of respect for him,” Lawrence said. “This first thing I’ll say about all of this is just I respect [former Head Coach] Coach [Urban] Meyer, and I really appreciate everything he’s done for me. He’s one of the main reasons I’m here. He drafted me, so that will always be there, and I wish him nothing but the best. Obviously, it didn’t work out here; some changes had to be made. But as far as Coach and his future, I wish him nothing but the best, and I guess I’ll just start with that.”

Meyer’s firing did not come down until after Thursday midnight, but Lawrence, like others, found out about Meyer’s dismissal early Thursday morning.

“I actually, I didn’t find out until this morning. I woke up; I guess it was around six or whatever and saw it on my phone,” Lawrence explained. “I had some texts and then just naturally kind of googled it to see what’s going on, just to be honest. Saw that, and I rolled over and told Marissa [his wife], ‘Hey, this just happened. It’ll be an interesting day at work.”

Even after a tumultuous first season, Lawrence is committed to trying to win in Jacksonville.

“Let’s go turn this thing around, go become a winner, let’s go win some games, get this thing turned around,” he said. “I have full faith in that still. Obviously, there’s a lot of steps to be made in the future to go in that direction, but I still believe that, and I plan on being here for a long time, hopefully, my whole career. Whatever the future holds, I know I’m just going to be the best I can every day, wherever my feet are. That’s how I’m approaching it, and that’s how I always will.”

Jacksonville(2-11) hopes to end their five-game losing streak on Sunday at home against the Texans.

Jags owner on Meyer: ‘I am bitterly disappointed to arrive at the conclusion that an immediate change is imperative for everyone’

After 13 games, the Urban Meyer era is over in Jacksonville. The 57-year-old Meyer was fired Thursday morning. 

According to the Jaguars, OC Darrell Bevell will serve as interim head coach for the rest of the 2021 season. 

Meyer’s firing came on the heels of former Jaguars K Josh Lambo accusing Meyer of kicking him before practice in August, which Meyer denied.

Here is a statement from Jaguars owner Shad Khan on the firing of Meyer:

“After deliberation over many weeks and a thorough analysis of the entirety of Urban’s tenure with our team, I am bitterly disappointed to arrive at the conclusion that an immediate change is imperative for everyone. I informed Urban of the change this evening. As I stated in October, regaining our trust and respect was essential. Regrettably, it did not happen.

“Trent Baalke continues as our general manager and will work with Darrell to ensure that our team will be inspired and competitive while representing Jacksonville proudly over our final four games of the season. In the spirit of closure and recharging our players, staff, and fan base, I will not comment further until some point following the conclusion of the NFL season.”

Meyer has had several missteps during his short time in Jacksonville, including having a female, who was not his wife, dancing close to him at a bar in Ohio after staying behind following the team’s loss to the Bengals, to hiring former Iowa strength and conditioning Chris Doyle, who some players at Iowa accused of making racist remarks. Meyer made many questionable decisions, which gave Jacksonville no choice but to fire him.

Meyer, a three-time national champion, accumulated a 187-32 record and a .854 winning percentage, the third-highest in college football history. However, this did not translate to wins on the NFL level. 

The Jaguars(2-11) hope to snap their five-game losing streak Sunday at home against the Texans.

Jags’ Meyer thought about benching Trevor Lawrence

On Sunday against the Titans, Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence had the worst game of his young career. The number one pick was 24/40 for 221 yards and a career-high four interceptions as the Jags were shoutout 20-0.

Lawrence was off yesterday, and according to Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer, the coaching staff discussed benching the rookie quarterback.

“There were some conversations about what would be best for Trevor [Lawrence] at this point,” Meyer said Monday. “I obviously relied on Bev [Darrell Bevell] and Schotty [BriaSchottenheimer] to give their opinions. We thought, all three of us, that it would be best to let him finish.”

Meyer was asked if he thought about sitting Lawrence down for a game, but at this point, Meyer is not looking to go in that direction.

“I don’t think so,” Meyer said about possibly sitting Lawrence. “I’ll go have that chat with—. I think this is a learning experience for Trevor [Lawrence]. We need to go win a game, and if we believe Trevor is our best chance to win a game and he’s going to be our quarterback here, then to keep just fighting through it, fighting through it.”

In the last seven games, Jacksonville has not scored more than 17 points, and while Meyer is seeing frustration, he is not seeing players turn on each other. 

“Yeah, on offense, I feel when things aren’t performing to the level that we expect, you would expect frustration,” he said. “I don’t see finger-pointing, I don’t see yelling at each other, I don’t see fist-fights on the sideline like I’ve heard about, I don’t see any of that. But I see frustration.”

Jacksonville should stick with Lawrence. Young quarterbacks struggle, and they have bad games. Look, Peyton Manning threw 28 interceptions as a rookie, so interceptions come with youth. Lawrence will get better, but unfortunately, there will be struggles.
