There's no love lost between these two franchises. They've played each other twice during every regular season since the inception of Jaguars football. Tennessee owns the series record 28-20 (including the postseason). The Titans have won three straight against the Jaguars dating back to 2017 and have won five of the last six. The last time the Jaguars beat the Titans was on Christmas Eve of 2016. There is no more bitter rival for the Jaguars than the Titans. During the 1999 season the Jaguars only lost to the Titans . . . That's right during Jacksonville's most impressive campaign to date they were undefeated against every team in the NFL except for Tennessee, whom they lost to three times including a soul crushing defeat in the AFC Championship.
The Titans have been as inconsistent as any team in football this year. After losing to the Dolphins in week one the Titans rallied off three straight victories only to then lose three straight games in the following three weeks. They then won two straight, one on the road in Dallas and one at home against New England. And, of course, just as it appeared the Titans had turned things around they got smacked around by the Colts and Texans in consecutive weeks. Last week the Titans came from behind against the Jets to even their record at 6-6. Still in contention for the playoffs this game is a must win for the Titans. Which Titans team will show up? The answer is hard to say. In victories of the Cowboys, Patriots, and Jaguars the Titans defense has been dominant. But in losses to the Colts, Texans, and Dolphins they've been anything but. On the offensive side of the ball things have been just as flummoxing. One week their rushing attack will look like a freight train and the next it will look as inept as any in the league. Marcus Mariota has been efficient in 2018 and has a knack for making big plays with his legs.
The Jaguars 2018 season is all but lost. Not yet mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, the Jaguars still have little to play for. Their odds of getting into the dance are virtually zero. But the Jaguars will look to play spoiler for the second straight week against a divisional opponent. Last week the Jaguars shutout the high flying Colts at home in Jacksonville. The Jaguars defense is playing it's best football of the season right now. Unfortunately the offense can't say the same thing. Blake Bortles was benched in favor of Cody Kessler prior to week 13. Kessler and the Jaguars offense, sans Leonard Fournette, could only muster six points last week. While Kessler didn't provide much in the way of points, he also didn't turn the ball over, which was enough for him to keep his starting job moving forward. Luckily for the Jags Leonard Fournette will return from his one game suspension this week and should be primed and ready to go. At 4-8 the Jaguars will hope to be a black mark on the Titans season and help to kick them out of playoff contention. Despite the poor record the Jaguars have shown no signs of quitting on the season. The effort has been consistent throughout the season and there's no reason to expect that to end tonight. The Big Cats are looking to end a three game losing streak to the Titans.
