The Jacksonville Jaguars are AFC South champions and will host the Buffalo Bills in an AFC Wild Card matchup on Sunday, January 7 at EverBank Field. Fans are reminded that the matchup will kick off at 1:05 p.m. ET on CBS and will be broadcast locally on WJAX CBS47.
A sellout crowd is expected to be in attendance for the Jaguars first home playoff game in nearly two decades. As a result, fans are encouraged to allow ample time for entry into the stadium. Parking lots around EverBank Field open at 9 a.m. and gates 1 and 4 open at 10 a.m. Fans wanting to be in the stadium for team introductions should be entering the stadium a minimum of one hour prior to kickoff. Fans who enter by noon will receive an official rally towel giveaway.
Due to the short turnaround time between public on-sale dates and the game, an overwhelming majority of tickets for this Sunday's game will be delivered via a mobile device. The most convenient way for season ticket members or Ticketmaster buyers to access their tickets is through the Official Jacksonville Jaguars app. Complete details on how to view or transfer tickets is available at www.jaguars.com/mytickets. To ensure an expedited entry process, fans are reminded to fully charge their phone and access their tickets before they arrive to the stadium on game day.
Following team introductions, this week's national anthem will be performed by Susan Tedeschi of Tedeschi Trucks Band. She will be accompanied by ROAR cheerleader Kinsey, who will interpret for the hearing impaired. The colors will be presented by a joint color guard. A 100-yard field flag will be displayed by Champions Club and charter-year season ticket members. Following the anthem, a flyover will be performed by the Black Diamond Jet Team flying three L-39 aircraft out of Lakeland, Fla.
Be Clear On Game Day Safety
Fan safety is a priority to the Jaguars and EverBank Field. The NFL's clear bag policy is in effect at EverBank Field. Fans are encouraged to leave bags at home, but, if necessary, bags should be either clear plastic and not exceeding 12" x 6" x 12", a one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag or a small clutch no larger than 4.5" x 6."
All fans arriving at EverBank Field on game day will be screened by walk-through magnetometers at all entry gates.
