Jaguars Offense Set Records In Futility

Any hope that the Jacksonville Jaguars fans took away from the team's Week 1 overtime loss to the Minnesota Vikings vanished on Sunday, when the Jaguars fell to the Houston Texans, 27-7.

Quarterback Blaine Gabbert left the game with an injury, but before he was gone he helped the Jaguars do some historically bad things on offense.

The aftermath of the loss was highlighted by the following (via Big Cat Country):

  • The Jaguars set a franchise low for time of possession, with just 16:43.
  • The Jaguars set a franchise low for total yards, with just 117 yards of offense.
  • The Jaguars' 52-net passing yards tied for third worst in franchise history.
  • The Jaguars had just nine first downs, tied for the third lowest in franchise history.
  • The Jaguars didn't convert a third down the entire game, which is only the third time in franchise history that's happened.

The Jaguars will hope things can only get better when they travel to Indianapolis next week.
