Remaining opponents' winning percentage:
.479 (23-25 combined record) Best chance to win:
At Tennessee (4-8) in Week 17. Outlook:
The only team with a larger negative-point differential than Jacksonville (negative-136) is Oakland (negative-141). The problems stem from a defense that has allowed 28 touchdowns–the NFL’s second-highest total behind Buffalo (29)–and an offense that sputtered under second-year quarterback Blaine Gabbert. Now that the more experienced Chad Henne has taken over the starting position, Jacksonville has a chance to win at least one more game with a schedule that features only one remaining opponent (New England) with a winning record. Biggest position of need:
A toss-up between defensive line and cornerback. The Jaguars have an NFL-low 13 sacks despite trying to address the problems at end through the years in free agency (Aaron Kampman and Matt Roth) and the draft (Derrick Harvey and Quentin Groves).Jason Babin, who was recently claimed off waivers from Philadelphia, isn’t a long-term answer. The Jaguars also lack a shut-down cornerback, a problem compounded by the lack of pass rush. -Alex Marvez
