Tidbits on the 2013 schedule
Heavy dose of AFC South in second half
In 2010 the NFL placed an emphasis on scheduling divisional games late in the season and this was accomplished again this season. The Jaguars will play five of their six AFC South games in the second half of the season including three of the last four weeks. The only division game in the first eight weeks is at home against the Colts in week four on Sept. 29. The only non-conference game for the club in the second half of the season is Nov. 17 against Arizona at EverBank Field.
