What to Know
The Tennessee Titans are 8-2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars since October of 2016, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success next Sunday. Tennessee and Jacksonville will face off in an AFC South battle at 1 p.m. ET at TIAA Bank Field. Both teams are out to turn their luck around after having lost tight contests in their previous games.
The Titans fought the good fight in their overtime game against the New York Jets on Sunday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 27-24. Tennessee was their own worst enemy and cost themselves 98 yards in penalties. Despite the defeat, they got a solid performance out of RB Derrick Henry, who rushed for one TD and 157 yards on 33 carries.
Special teams collected ten points for Tennessee. K Randy Bullock delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
Jacksonville suffered a bitter loss on Thursday, failing to capitalize on an early lead against the Cincinnati Bengals. It was a hard-fought matchup, but the Jaguars had to settle for a 24-21 defeat against Cincinnati. Jacksonville was up 14 to nothing at the end of the half but couldn’t hold on to the lead. A silver lining for them was the play of RB James Robinson, who punched in two rushing touchdowns.
The losses put Tennessee at 2-2 and Jacksonville at 0-4. A pair of offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Tennessee enters the contest with 163.8 rushing yards per game on average, good for fourth best in the NFL. Less enviably, the Jaguars are fifth worst in the league in passing yards per game, with only 218.3 on average.
