- The Titans won a hard-fought road game in Week 1, leaving 12 points on the field in missed field goals
- The Jaguars required a three-turnover day from Colts QB Philip Rivers to win a close game in Week 1
Games between these two teams always produce weird and wonderful performances, as well as some strangely memorable moments (Derrick Henry 99-yard touchdown anyone?). Last season they split the series 1-1, but the crucial game is the one in Week 12 with Ryan Tannehill under center. In that game the Titans hammered the Jaguars 42-20 in a game that saw Henry pile up 1659 yards and two touchdowns.
The Jaguars surprised the NFL last week, but this week should be a completely different proposition. They do not have the pieces offensively to take on a Tennessee defense which is significantly better than the one they faced last week. Equally their defense now comes up against a team that has an identity that is hard to stop, especially with inexperience on the back end.
Look for the Titans to hammer hard into the line, before setting the Jaguars inexperienced secondary up for deep shots to A.J. Brown and Corey Davis. The Jaguars were impressive last week, but the Titans will remind everyone why they were among the favorites for the first overall pick in 2021.
