9.7 won't beat the Saints

Jaguars OC Dirk Koetter needs to score.

As it stands, the Jacksonville Jaguars rank 31st in points per game averaging just 9.7 points. We can round it up to an even 10 to make it a nice double digit number, but I think the 9.7 perfectly displays the gravity of the issue. The Jaguars aren't going to win many games scoring 10 points, obviously. By comparison, the team the Jaguars face on Sunday, the New Orleans Saints average more points per game (34.7) than the Jaguars have scored the entire season (29).

We don't need to start another counter for the last time the Jaguars scored 30 points like we did some years back (Week 14 last year, if you were wondering), but the team has got to get into the endzone, more than anything else, if they want to win more ballgames. The Jaguars have just one redzone trip on the entire season. Think about that, they've given up more safeties than the amount of times they've gotten to the opposing team's 20-yard line. That's almost incomprehensible, and sounds like something a team would have to try to actually do.
