Game facts: Jaguars at Chiefs

Mind-blowing stat:  The Jaguars have been outscored 58-0 in the first half on the road this season. 

Struggling coach:  Gus Bradley's 14-41 record (.255 win percentage) is the worst in the Super Bowl era among head coaches with at least 50 games.

Trouble defending edge runs:  In Week 8 against the Titans, the Jags allowed 8.3 yards per carry on 17 rushes outside the tackles. On 26 rushes between the tackles, Jacksonville allowed just 3.1 YPC. 

Can't get any worse:  Since 2013, Jacksonville's offense is averaging 18.4 PPG (fewest in NFL); the Jaguars' defense is allowing 27.4 PPG in that span (most in NFL). 

Bortles regressing?:  Despite the narrative that Blake Bortles has regressed, he nearly has the same passer rating through seven games this year (80.3) that he did at this time last year (82.5). 

Good, but also bad:  The Jaguars defense ranks 7th in yards allowed per play (5.2), but is tied for 26th in points allowed per game (28.0).
