Jacksonville Jaguars Offense ‘Bye’ The Numbers
The Jacksonville Jaguars offense has struggled at times this season, often against solid defenses, sometimes against mediocre defenses.
But that doesn’t stop us from highlighting the numbers heading into the bye week!
Take a look at the following slides for some analysis of the offense’s key contributors up until the bye week.

Blake Bortles has been a major catalyst for the Jaguars’ offense. Since taking the reins in week three, Bortles has managed to inspire play along the offensive line and at the receiver positions. The running game and defense have also benefitted from his tenacity and willingness to take risks where Chad Henne was more hesitant. Bortles has had some decision making problems this season, but he’s also struggled behind a mediocre offensive line, suffering 23 sacks. He’s been much better when not under pressure, throwing for eight touchdowns to nine interceptions while completing 70% of his passes. Jags receivers have let him down a bit with 14 drops so far this season. Bortles is currently on pace to be a 3,000 yard passer this season. Unfortunately, he’s also on pace for 10 more interceptions to go with.
