The Jacksonville Jaguars offense has been nothing short of abysmal this season as the team have now lost seven consecutive games. They haven't scored more than 26 points during that span, and have only reached the 20-point mark twice.
As a result of their disappointing run, the Jags have opted to shake things up within their coaching staff. The first domino to fall is offensive coordinator Nate Hackett, who has been fired by the team following their loss to Buffalo.

The Jaguars came out the gate on fire, winning three of their first four games, including a statement victory over the Patriots in Week 2. After a 3-1 start, the Jaguars have dropped to 3-8 despite expectations that the team would be returning to the playoffs.

The team is averaging 17.9 points per game this year, which ranks 27th in the league. The decision to move on from Hackett stems from their inability to put up points, plain and simple. In what is essentially a lost season, the Jags will now have to look towards the future.
