Are the Jacksonville Jaguars the worst team in the NFL? There isn't a consensus among the top NFL power rankings, but they're certainly among a three-team group that includes the Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders. SB Nation's NFL power rankings have the Jags as the worst in the NFL, with little hope in sight:
32. Jacksonville Jaguars (LW: 30, 0-2): I don't know where their wins are going to come from.
NFL.com has the Jags at No. 30, above 0-2 cellar mates Cleveland and Oakland:
This show is never going to get on the road unless Jacksonville's outside playmakers actually start making plays and the defense generates a pass rush. Both issues have been the hallmark of the Gene Smith era as general manager. In Sunday's loss to Houston, the Jags defense went sack-less and the offense produced just over 50 net yards passing. Fifty yards.
So much for the offseason development of Blaine Gabbert. The Jags had a net of just 117 yards of offense … the worst offensive output in franchise history. And with the way this team struggled last year, that is saying a lot!
ESPN splits the difference of NFL.com and Fox, placing Jacksonville between the Raiders and Browns at No. 31:
Blaine Gabbert took a step backward Sunday in a bad performance against the Texans.
