The NFL regular season is finally here, and this week the Jacksonville Jaguars travel up to the Garden State to take on the New York Giants in the opening game of 2018.
All eyes will be on the much anticipated match up of Jaguars All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey versus the Giants All-Pro wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. However, the game will also feature many “games inside the game”, like rookie Saquan Barkley’s debut against the fierce Jaguars front seven, and the refurbished Jaguars offensive line against a now Jason Pierre-Paul and Olivier Vernon-less Giants defense.
Eight of the last ten Super Bowl champions won their opening day game, and if the Jaguars hope to get to Atlanta in February, they’ll need a strong start Sunday. Here’s how to view the game at home.
