Fans of the Jacksonville Jaguars wear bags as the team loses 31 - 14 against the Detroit Lions November 4, 2012

The winless Jacksonville Jaguars are offering free beer in a bid to draw fans to EverBank field this weekend.

The Jaguars, who are 0-3, announced on Twitter Thursday that fans will get two free drinks if they purchase a ticket worth $45 or more to Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts, promoting the gambit with the hashtag #DrinksOnUs.

The team hopes the marketing tack will increase attendance and prevent a TV blackout. The Jaguars haven’t had a winning season since 2007.
