Jaguars vs Titans: Bold Predictions
Travis Johns - @twjohns97
This week, the Jaguars have their last chance to secure a home win as they face the division rival (and playoff hopeful) Tennessee Titans. Can they rally around Doug Marrone and pull out the W this week?
The Jags offense, per usual, will continue to suck. The Titans aren’t a great defense, but they rank 7th in rush defense against our disgustingly terrible running game. Since we don’t have an NFL caliber quarterback to punish their mediocre secondary, we aren’t going to get much done. I’m expecting about 250 yards of total offense with about 200 yards and 2 INTs (probably a pick-six because why not) from Bortles and between 10-16 points.
Defensively, this week is going to be tough. Marcus Mariota tends to get a lot of praise on the Titans, but he really hasn’t been THAT good this year and could potentially be shut down by our secondary. However, Demarco Murray and Derrick Henry, the running back duo for the Titans, are almost unstoppable. Their 3rd-ranked rushing attack will have a solid day against our 20th ranked rushing defense and will help the Titans offense produce about 300 yards of total offense and two touchdowns.
So no, I don’t think this is a trap game. I think the score will be close, but we’ll look as bad as we do every week. But hell, I’ll still be there cheering them on.
Prediction: TEN 23, JAX 13

The Jaguars are bad. Their quarterback is bad. Their running backs are playing bad. Their receivers, save Marqise Lee, are playing bad. Their offensive line is dealing with major injuries at left guard and is playing inconsistent at best. The Jaguars have a bottom third run defense and are going up against the third ranked rushing offense in football.
Can the Jaguars win? Sure. Will they? Probably not. I would like to be wrong on this one, but the Jaguars aren't as good as the Titans and unlike the Titans, the Jaguars find new ways to shoot themselves in the foot on a weekly basis.
Prediction: TEN 26, JAX 17

The Tennessee Titans come to town this week in what could be a historic (in a bad way) game if the Jaguars don't win at home in there final opportunity of the year. With Gus Bradley now out of the picture it will be up to interim head coach Doug Marrone to stop that from happening. Offensively the game plan has to be to attack this secondary ranking 29th against the pass. Allen Hurns not practicing this week and being doubtful for the game could play a major role if Allen Robinson and Marquise Lee don't pick up the slack. I think they get into a rhythm and with safety Devin McCourty also doubtful after not practicing this week, have a big game. The Jaguars running game is an absolute mess this year and hasn't been much of a factor in any games this year and probably won't in this one either. This one comes down to Blake Bortles not making turnovers and the Jaguars not beating themselves. Defensively I'm actually a little worried about Marcus Mariota having a big day, even with the way this secondary has played this year corners Jalen Ramsey was limited this week and Aaron Colvin did not practice. I think the Titans also have a big day running the football as they come in to this game ranking 3rd in the league and with a banged up defense, it could get ugly.
Prediction: TEN 33, JAX 23
