Cecil Shorts stared at the ceiling, looked back down and then just shook his head. He couldn't recall the last time the Jacksonville Jaguars scored a touchdown at home.

And for good reason.

It's been nearly a year since the Jaguars (1-8) have found the end zone at EverBank Field — 325 days and counting to be exact.

Jacksonville's drought spans nearly four games, more than 15 quarters, and 230 minutes, 26 seconds of playing time.

Shorts says: "Really? Damn near a year? We've got to change that ASAP. Jeesh. Don't tell me that no more."

Jacksonville hopes to turn things around Sunday against Arizona (5-4), which is coming off consecutive wins.
