Can't win a game with that anemic of an offense. The Jaguars played the same game they did at home the week before, with a strong defensive effort that I applaud tremendously, but there's been no help from the offense. I'm going to say it: Gabbert needs help. Not just from his receivers that drop balls and can't get open and a make shift offensive line that gives up a heavy pass rush, but he needs help from coaches because he is not comfortable at all. The Texans played man coverage in an effort to shutdown Jones-Drew and essentially dared Gabbert to make the throws. He came up short. Both interceptions that he threw were not good throws. Both in coverage, one behind a cutting running back with a linebacker trailing, the other with a tight man coverage on Sims-Walker with no separation. 

I can't possibly see this changing. The defense does its work for most of the game, but who can blame them for a couple scores a game when they're either on a short field and have to be on the field 35+ minutes a game. A lot on offense has to change in order for this team to win. A defensive effort complete with turnovers and 3 and outs a plenty can only do so much. In this league you win with defense, but you have to be able to score points.
