Jaguars vs. Titans preview:
The Jaguars got destroyed by the Raiders last Sunday, 33-16, and it wasn't ever close—the Raiders led 20-6 at halftime. Chris Ivory was the leading rusher with 48 yards, and Blake Bortles managed to only throw for 246 yards and a touchdown, along with two interceptions. What was supposed to be a high-powered offense has looked anemic and inconsistent all season long.
The Titans are coming off a 34-36 loss that was actually a lot closer of a game than the score makes it appear. Tennessee led with six minutes to go, but gave up a touchdown and a fumble returned for a TD in the final two minutes. Despite the loss, Demarco Murray was still able to run for 107 yards and a touchdown and Marcus Mariota went 22-of-37 for 232 yards and two touchdowns.
The Titans and Jaguars have split the last four games against each other, each winning two.
Jaguars vs. Titans prediction:
The Titans take this game. They're at home, and the defense is underrated. Plus, the Jaguars are incredibly bad. Mariota continues his streak of excellent play, and Murray tops the century mark once again as they rout Jacksonville. Head coach Gus Bradley might get fired after this one.
