Jaguars averaging league-low 241 yards, mired in worst offensive start since inaugural year

The Jacksonville Jaguars were supposed to be better.

Quarterback Blaine Gabbert was going to learn from last year's experiences and show progress after a full offseason with coaches and teammates. The offense was going to improve with the addition of receivers Laurent Robinson and Justin Blackmon. The line was going to be a strength, able to consistently open holes for Maurice Jones-Drew.

Instead, the Jaguars (1-4) are off to their worst offensive start since the team's inaugural season — a woeful first five games that should have new owner Shad Khan questioning the direction of the franchise.

Jacksonville is averaging 241 yards a game this season, at the bottom of the league again.

Coach Mike Mularkey, in his first season in Jacksonville, remains optimistic things can turn around.
