The 2003 Jacksonville Jaguars season was the ninth season for the team in the National Football League. The Jaguars failed to improve upon their 6–10 regular season record in 2002 and did not make the playoffs.

Oddly, despite being in existence since 1995, this season marked the first time that the Jaguars played the San Diego Chargers.[1] This is due to old NFL scheduling formulas in place prior to 2002; the Jaguars had played the Chargers’ division rivals the Kansas City Chiefs four times;[2] the Denver Broncos[3] three times and the Oakland Raiders twice (though not since 1997).[4]
