The Social Snapshot: TB vs JAX

With the season here, the digital department of the Jaguars decided to make The Social Snapshot of each game rather than of the week. The Jaguars opened the 2014 preseason with a home matchup versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The anticipation of seeing the high profile free agents, draft picks and new video boards all at once was realized on Friday night. The official hashtag for the game was #TBvsJAX. Fans, players and media members provided great content on gameday. Look for The Social Snapshot next weekend. The official game hashtag is #JAXvsCHI. Fans looking to have their content posted in The Social Snapshot should use that hashtag and/or #Jaguars and @Jaguars.
