Even a change to the touted rookie Blake Bortles isn’t helping the Jaguars score points.

Just how terrible is the Jacksonville Jaguars offense? Well, to put it into perspective, the New York Jets who have the QB with the worst passer rating in the league and were just completely shut out by the San Diego Chargers, have scored 79 points through 5 games – the Jacksonville Jaguars with two different starting QBs have scored only 67.
There are appears to be no respite for Jacksonville’s offensive woes no matter where they go. The team is averaging 13.4 points per game this year and are on pace to score less than 215 points – easily the lowest mark in franchise history. One of the answers is the team needs a star WR who can stretch the field, or maybe even a dynamic RB who can keep defenses stacked in the box. The seem to have a QB capable of making all the throws, but they just don’t have an offense that can produce, and until the Jaguars get one, getting a win against even some of the most talent-barren teams will be a difficult chore week in and week out.
Here are the 5 worst teams in the NFL heading into Week 6:
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – This team has been putting up a good fight the last two weeks, but it still hasn’t amounted to much beyond a narrow win over the Steelers.
4. Minnesota Vikings – After starting 3 different QBs and 2 different RBs in 5 weeks, it is official: The Vikings are the unluckiest NFL team of 2014.
3. Tennessee Titans – This team just gave up a 25-point lead, AT HOME – an NFL first. The question must be asked again – how on Earth did this team beat the Kansas City Chiefs in Arrowhead Stadium when the Patriots couldn’t even get their motor going?
2. Jacksonville Jaguars – The 13.4 points/game average the team is current on would have been the NFL average in 1938. In other words, even in an era where the forward pass had not even been developed yet, this would still be at best an average team.
1. Oakland Raiders – You know this team is going to be a hard sell for prospective head coaches when they are reaching out to 6-year retiree Mike Holmgren to lead the team.
