JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars are detailing their gameday 9/11 observance plans that will include a flyover, a full-field-length flag and paratroopers targeting EverBank Field at halftime.

The pregame events will include broadcasts from the NFL of 9/11 events being held in various parts of the country.

"Taps will be played from where Flight 93 crashed in Pennsylvania," said Macky Weaver, who heads up ticket sales for the Jaguars.

"It's going to be a special day, obviously a day to reflect on what happened 10 years ago, " said Weaver.

The Jaguars say 1,000 tickets are being provided to police and firemen so they can attend the ceremony and game.  Another 1,000 have been donated so military members can attend.

SMG, the company that manages EverBank Field, declined to comment on what, if any, security changes are planned for Sunday.

Since the 2001 attacks, the NFL has changed security measures that now include pat-downs of fans when entering the stadium and restrictions on what is allowed inside stadiums.

Weapons of any type are not allowed, along with noise makers, seat cushions and large purses.
