The Jaguars have made a significant offensive change.
With the offense struggling through much of the 2016 season, the Jaguars on Saturday announced they had promoted quarterbacks coach Nathaniel Hackett to offensive coordinator. They fired offensive coordinator Greg Olson.
The Jaguars, after ranking 21st in the NFL in total offense last season, rank 25th in total yards this season. They have scored 19.9 points per game after scoring 23.5 points per game last season.
The Jaguars have been shut out in the first half three times this season, and haven’t scored a touchdown on their first offensive possession since Week 2 of the 2015 season. Six of the team’s 15 touchdowns have come when trailing by 17 or more points.
