Jaguars must improve offensive line play

The Jacksonville Jaguars' offensive line has disappointed this season, allowing 40 sacks in 13 games.

The Jacksonville Jaguars' offensive line has struggled this season, and last Sunday's 17-10 loss to the New York Jets was no exception. In his weekly film analysis, Alfie Crow of Big Cat Country identified a few specific problems the Jags' line had against New York.

The Jaguars rank 29th in the NFL in sacks allowed, having given up 40 in 13 games. The Jags have allowed 86 quarterback hits this season, ranking 30th in the league. When it comes to running the ball, Jacksonville isn't any better. The Jaguars rank 29th with 3.7 yards per carry, and their 1,068 rushing yards this season ranks 29th, too.

In its last three games, Jacksonville has given up 14 sacks, but the Jaguars' running game has been a bit better, averaging 4.0 yards per carry.

At 2-11 with three games left to play, there isn't much left this season for the Jaguars to salvage, but if they want to build an momentum whatsoever going into the offseason, the offensive line must improve.
