Jaguars are significantly worse at home than on the road

Al Messerschmidt

Jacksonville's woes go farther than just a bad overall record.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are 1-6 this season, but their struggles go even deeper: On their home turf, they are 0-4 and have been outscored 126-34.

SB Nation's Big Cat Country dug into the problem a bit, breaking down the home and away stats for the Jags:

Player/Stat Home Away
Blaine Gabbert 59.7%, 601 passing yards, 4TD/5INT 56.2%, 828 passing yards, 5TD/0INT
Points scored avg. 5.5 per game 20.75 per game
Points allowed avg. 31.5 per game 22.5 per game
Total offense avg. 199.25 yards per game 309.5 yards per game
Total defense avg. 445.75 yards per game 353.75 yards per game

Big Cat Country also notes that Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey didn't have similar home-away stats when he coached the Buffalo Bills in 2004 and 2005.

While Jacksonville's four home games look rough from the outset, the Jags happened to play two of the best teams in the NFL at home. They lost to Houston, 27-7, and Chicago, 41-3.

Both Houston and Chicago are 7-1 this season.

Other losses came against the Cincinnati Bengals, who were 3-1 after their win over the Jags, and the Detroit Lions, who came away at .500 after their win this weekend.

Jacksonville has home games remaining against Indianapolis, Tennessee, the New York Jets and New England.
