I wrote earlier about Jack Del Rio’s dismissal by the Jaguars. He led Jacksonville to a 3-8 record before getting the news of massive changes to come. As you’d expect from the former linebacker, the defense led the way for this squad. In fact, Jacksonville ranks fifth in total defense at 18.2 points allowed per game (only San Francisco, Houston, Baltimore and Pittsburgh have fared better).
However, as well as the defense has played for the balance of the season, there’s no sugarcoating how terribly the offense has performed. The Jaguars rank dead last in scoring at 12.5 points per game. There are empty seats everywhere and Maurice Jones-Drew remains the lone draw.
We can say this. Jack Del Rio’s team was a disciplined bunch. The Jaguars are tied for dead last in penalties with 54 (Miami).
The Raiders lead the NFL in penalties (109), followed closely by the Seahawks (105). Interestingly, the Colts have committed the fourth-fewest penalties.
