The Jacksonville Jaguars entered the NFL in 1995 as an expansion team alongside the Carolina Panthers. The Jaguars were originally in the AFC Central until they were realigned to the AFC South in 2002.

The Jaguars made an early impact in the NFL by qualifying for the playoffs four years in a row, between their second and fifth seasons, with two division titles, and two AFC Championship Game appearances.

Both the Jaguars and their expansion Bros, the Carolina Panthers, became the youngest NFL teams to reach the conference championships, both achieving the feat in 1996. The Jaguars set another record in their fifth season in 1999 by clinching the top seed in their conference.

Did you know that in order to avoid a lawsuit with then Jaguar automaker Ford, the Jaguar was named the official car of the Jaguars?

The new logo was a snarling jaguar head with a teal tongue, which original owner Wayne Weaver said was his wife’s touch. He also claimed that the teal tongue came from “feeding Panthers to our Jaguars” — an obvious jab at the rival Panthers.

They are one of 4 franchises to never appear in a Super Bowl.
