Jacksonville Jaguars 2014 Off-season Report

2013 Recap When the Jaguars started 0-8 with all 8 losses coming by double digits, it looked like they were on their way to all-time bad status and maybe a 0-16 season. They didn’t finish quite that bad, as they went 4-4 after the bye to finish 4-12, but I still think this was the worst team in the NFL. They finished dead last in DVOA and point differential, with 10 of their 12...

Let’s see what happens this week at home.Not everything was fixed last week with the Jaguars' 29-27 win over Tennessee on the road.
