Despite Julius Thomas Injury, Jaguars And Bortles Expecting Improvement in 2015

The wait ended for Jacksonville Jaguars fans last weekend as the preseason finally got underway with a Jaguars win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The win came with a loss though, as former Broncos tight end Julius Thomas, a big free agent acquisition, suffered a hand injury and will miss the remainder of the preseason. Nonetheless, quarterback Blake Bortles has a few new weapons at his disposal this season, and growth is expecting from the young returning position players. It will be important for last year’s first round pick to get in a groove as soon as possible if Jacksonville has any shot this year of contending for a playoff berth. Second-round draft pick T.J. Yeldon will have to wait to contribute to the offense, as he was ruled out for the opener.

With the preseason opener in the books, below is other information for secondary market Jaguars tickets from for their action leading up to Week 1 of the regular season.

8/22/2015 | New York Giants vs. Jacksonville Jaguars | MetLife Stadium | Average Price: $75.75 | Get-in Price: $9

8/28/2015 | Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Detroit Lions | EverBank Field | Average Price: $57.13 | Get-in Price: $13

9/3/2015 | Washington Redskins vs. Jacksonville Jaguars | FedEx Field | Average Price: $47 | Get-in Price: $4

The Jaguars return home in Week 3 of the preseason, where the starters are projected to see the most playing time. They host the Detroit Lions, who won their first preseason game against the New York Jets. With a get-in price of only $13, it’s a great value to see professional football at EverBank Field, especially with so many starting position players slated to get a lot of the minutes over the course of the game.

For the finale, the Jaguars travel to the nation’s capital to face the Washington Redskins with an average ticket price of $47 and a get-in price of just $4. There’s no saying how much the starters will be on the field at this point in time, but in general, teams tend to play it safe to avoid any major injuries prior to regular season games.
