The Urban Meyer era is underway in Jacksonville and things are off to an embarrassing start.
The Jaguars are taking on the Houston Texans to open the 2021 season. Both the Jags and the Texans are expected to be among the worst teams in the league this fall.
Meyer’s offense had a pretty brutal start to the season. The first play was called for a penalty – illegal formation. Jacksonville’s second play was a tipped pass.
Urban Meyer's offensive running a tight ship. They've snapped it twice – yet have not run any plays. Illegal formation on snap one. Called timeout just before snap two. #Jaguars

Trevor Lawrence's first two snaps: an illegal formation, a timeout. A bit bumpy out the gate.

On Trevor Lawrence’s first play in the NFL, the ball is tipped at the line of scrimmage and falls incomplete.
And the Jaguars get an illegal formation penalty, too.
Things are going great.

You can only go up from here, Urban.
The Jaguars and the Texans are a couple of minutes into their Week 1 game. So far, it’s locked up at 0-0.
