Jaguars stat of the week

Every Thursday I’ll present an interesting (to me, anyway) stat, break it down, and try to provide some context heading into the game the following weekend.

TD or not TD

The Jacksonville Jaguars touchdown drought at EverBank Field is well documented.

The team hasn’t scored one since the first quarter of the 2012 home finale against the New England Patriots. They’ve played three games at EverBank this season and have scored just 11 points, meaning it has been 230 minutes and 26 seconds of game time since they last scored a touchdown in Jacksonville.

We know that’s bad, but just how bad is it? To find out, I looked at how many touchdowns the rest of the teams have scored in home games since Week 17 of the 2012 season (not including the “home” game Minnesota played in London this season).

Twelve teams have scored at least 15 touchdowns in home games since then. Only eight have scored less than 10. Granted, the Jaguars have played just three true home games (again, not counting London), which is the fewest in the league over this span, but the next closest team is Philadelphia, and the Eagles have scored five TDs in three home games.

Denver (6 home games): 32 touchdowns

New Orleans (6): 27

New England (6): 20

Dallas (5): 18

Washington (5): 17

Indianapolis (6): 17

Detroit (5): 17

Tennessee (6): 16

Minnesota (5): 16

Seattle (5): 16

New York Giants (5): 15

Atlanta (6): 15

And now for the bottom …

St. Louis (5): 9

Pittsburgh (5): 9

Oakland (5): 9

New York Jets (5): 8

Miami Dolphins (4): 8

Baltimore (4): 8

Tampa Bay (5): 7

Philadelphia (3): 5
