The Jacksonville Jaguars are a professional football franchise based in Jacksonville, Florida. The Jaguars compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the American Football Conference (AFC) South division. The team plays its home games at TIAA Bank Field. Founded alongside the Carolina Panthers in 1995 as an expansion team, the Jaguars originally competed in the AFC Central until they were realigned to the AFC South in 2002. The franchise is owned by Shahid Khan, who purchased the team from original majority owner Wayne Weaver in 2011.[5][6][7]

The Jaguars made an early impact in the NFL by clinching four consecutive playoff berths, two division titles, and two AFC Championship Game appearances from their second and fifth seasons of play. They are the youngest NFL expansion team to appear in a conference championship (by their second season in 1996, along with the Panthers) and clinch their conference's top seed (by their fifth season in 1999). The Jaguars have been less successful after their early seasons, with only three playoff appearances and one division title since 2000.[8] Jacksonville is one of four NFL franchises to have never played in the Super Bowl.
