Jags minus Shorts could be short on points

Cecil Shorts AP

There is a very real chance Sunday’s Jets-Jaguars game ends in a 0-0 tie.

The Jaguars have already listed six players as out for the game, including wide receiver Cecil Shorts and running back Rashad Jennings, who are still bothered by concussion symptoms.

According to Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, the Jags will also be without running back Maurice Jones-Drew (foot), cornerback Aaron Ross (calf), left guard Mike Brewster (hand) and defensive end George Selvie (concussion).

Down to their fourth starting running back of the season (Montell Owens) and with a receiving corps of Justin Blackmon, Kevin Elliott, Jordan Shipley, Quan Cosby and Toney Clemons, it’s hard to imagine how the Jags are going to score much.

Then again, they’re playing the Jets, who may not even have Tim Tebow available.

No points may be enough to keep them from losing.

    What possible reason could they have to NOT shut MJD down for the season at this point? Take it from a Vikes fan last year who saw AP go down in a meaningless game that all it did was successfully cause us to lose out on either RGIII or the windfall that could have been retrieved trading that pick away. Such is the luck of the Vikes…

    The Jags should at least be able to get into field goal range returning a pick or two.

    “There is a very real chance Sunday’s Jets-Jaguars game ends in a 0-0 tie.”

    This is what someones says and then the game ends up 31-28 or some craziness.

    It’s worth keeping in mind, the Jags give up an average of 28 points a game and the Jets are only marginally better at 24 points. Also, the Jags and Jets score an average of 17 and 19 per game respectively. It’ll probably be a train wreck but I have to question the “very real chance” you threw out there. We shall see though
