First Look: Commanders Vs Jaguars Week 1 Match Up

By Mark Solway | September 6th, 2022

Washington will face the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1 – hoping to make history, and earn their first win as the Commanders. The past off-season was rife with noise for the organization; but come Sunday, the only thing on anyone’s mind will be what’s happening on the field.

As the Redskins, Washington have only lost once against the Jaguars. They have won the last four meetings.

The Jaguars head into Fed Ex Field, looking for their first ever win there. Jacksonville’s only win over Washington came in 2002 at home.

Head-To-Head

The two teams have met each other seven times. Washington have won six of the meetings.

The last meeting between the two teams was in 2018, when Dustin Hopkins nailed a game-winning field goal as time expired to eke out a 16-13 victory for Washington.

Brandon Scherff signed as a free agent with Jacksonville in the off-season. He will make his first ever NFL appearance at Fed Ex Field without a Washington jersey on.
