Top Ten Lowest Scoring NFL Teams of 2013
Discover the Lowest Scoring NFL Teams of 2013
2014 NFL Off-Season
Yesterday, we took a gander at the ten highest scoring NFL offenses of 2013. So you can probably guess what today’s list has in store. Yup, the lowest scoring teams in the league last year. We’ll kick things right off with half of the AFC South.

1. The Jacksonville Jaguars scored 247 points over the course of last season (that’s a little over a third of Denver’s total points), averaging just 15.4 PPG. But hey, Jville fans, take heart, at least you can watch your team lose from the comfort of a cabana now!
2. The Houston Texans averaged a mere 17.2 PPG and had 276 total points in 2013. While this is dismal, it earned them the No. 1 overall draft pick; maybe Jadeveon Clowney can at least help the club stop the opposing team…
3. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are now looking to majorly turn things around under Coach Lovie Smith, scored an average of 18 PPG last season. They had just 288 total points on the year.
4. Rex Ryan’s New York Jets (who still can’t seem to fully nail down their QB situation after all this time) scored 290 points last year and averaged 18.1 PPG. Hopefully Smith, or Vick, or a combination thereof will manage to find more targets in 2014.
5. The New York Giants had an ever-so-slightly brighter season than their Big Apple counterparts, scoring 294 total points and averaging 18.4 PPG. Being just *this much* better than the Jets is not what anyone expects from Eli Manning and Tom Coughlin, so I expect them to right the ship in 2014.
6. The Cleveland Browns scored an average of 19.2 PPG and had 308 total points in 2013. They’ve got Johnny Manziel on their side now, though, and despite the team’s insistence that he won’t be starting right away, I’ll be shocked if he doesn’t take the reigns sometime before December.
7. The Miami Dolphins, who scored 317 total points and averaged 19.8 PPG, can’t totally be blamed for their lackluster year. The fact that the team managed to hold things together at all given the troubling amount of locker room drama (ahem, Richie Incognito) they endured is nothing to sneeze at.
8. Last year’s defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens scored 320 points on the year and averaged 20 PPG. While the Ravens have always had more prowess on the defensive side of the ball, their offensive issues must be corrected if they want to bring home another Lombardi Trophy.
9. The Oakland Raiders, who’ve been driving the struggle bus for nigh on 15 years at this point, scored 322 points overall and averaged 20.1 PPG.
10. The Washington Redskins, who dealt with almost as much drama as the Dolphins in 2013, managed to score a grand total of 334 points, averaging 20.9 PPG. Fans can hope a new coach, a healthy RGIII (and the addition of WR DeSean Jackson) will move their club up the ranks during the coming year.
