JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jaguars host the Texans at EverBank Stadium on Sunday in Week 3. Here’s what you need to know about the game.

When is it?

Sunday, 1 p.m. at EverBank Stadium.

The tickets and parking

Tickets for Sunday’s game aren’t nearly as in demand as last week’s against the Chiefs. There are tickets available for as little as $30 through Ticketmaster. Parking lots open at 9 a.m. And remember, parking is all digital this season.

Bring a water!

Temperatures were a problem last week. The Jaguars allow fans to bring in one, commercially branded, factory-sealed, plastic, 16.9 oz. or less size bottle of water per person. Refillable bottled water stations can be found at all water fountains throughout the stadium. There are JTA cooling buses at Ramps 1 and 4 with water coolers nearby, too.
