Jaguars Lose Offensive Identity In Goal Line Situations

The Jaguars offensive play calling continues to leave people scratching their heads.

On Sunday the difference in the game was the two drives in which the Jaguars failed to score touchdowns after having first- and-goal inside the Bengals five-yard line. Of the six plays the Jaguars ran in those two goal to go situations they only gave the ball to Maurice Jones-Drew once on a poorly executed toss sweep that ended up losing seven yards.

For years the Jaguars have prided themselves on being able to get tough yards on the ground, but for some reason they went away from it against the Bengals. Chances are if you give Jones-Drew three chances to score from the two-yard line he is going to get in the end zone.

While it should be noted that the Jaguars offense blew two golden opportunities to score with Marcedes Lewis, it does not excuse the fact that they only put the ball in the hands of their best player once when they had an excellent chance to put more points up.

The questionable play calling is one of a myriad of issues that the Jaguars need to turn around if they want to start winning games this season.
