JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jags are back home again Sunday, playing the Bengals, and everyone's amped up after last weekends win. And like always the Jaguars have a great line up in store for fans. "It's a special game in a lot of fashions," says Jags Senioe VP of Sales and Marketing, Mackey Weaver.  For starters, it's alumni weekend. So there will be a lot of previous players present. "Sunday will also be the last time teal is used as a primary jersey. We will go to black as a primary jersey, teal will become the alternate jersey," says Weaver. Which means it will only be worn on special occasions from now on.  The Jags are offering their coin toss tickets, for the second time Sunday. Weaver says, "You come down on Saturday between 9 and 1. You pay your $20, you can get up to four of them, and you get a voucher for those tickets." The coin toss part, is that you don't know where they're going to be.  Security will be beefed up Sunday at Ever Bank Stadium,after authorities say, 26-year-old Chad Dewick ran onto the field during the Jags home opener. Additional security layering will be implemented to ensure fan and player safety.  But by far the biggest event fans are looking forward to this Sunday.. "It's a recognition for Fred Taylor putting him into the pride of the jaguars. and certainly giving him the do respect he deserves," says Weaver.  Jags fan Nephi Phillips says, "He's one of the best running backs in the league. One of the best jaguar running backs until mojo breaks his record. Overall pretty cool guy." And at the end of the day, the Jaguars want a packed house to give Jacksonville that home field advantage. "A lot of really neat things happening this weekend. Really looking forward to having a bunch of fans here and having a great time," says Weaver.  Kick off is Sunday at 4.
