The Jaguars and Titans, two AFC South teams that appeared in the postseason last year will renew their rivalry on “Thursday Night Football.”
Tennessee (6-6) has had a better season than the Jaguars, but still finds itself outside of the postseason picture. It’s coming off a 16-point come-from-behind win over the Jets that essentially kept its playoff hopes alive. The Titans currently sit one game behind the Ravens in the standings for the No. 6 seed, but Baltimore owns the tiebreaker, meaning Tennessee will essentially have to make up two games between now and the end of the season. Marcus Mariota has played better the past two weeks, throwing for 585 yards and four touchdowns to just one interception, but will be tested by a stout Jacksonville defense.
The Jaguars (4-8) snapped a seven-game losing streak with a 6-0 victory over the Colts on Sunday. A quarterback change from Blake Bortles to Cody Kessler was made over the skid, with Kessler throwing for 306 yards, one touchdown, and one interception since taking over as the starter. Jacksonville’s defense has allowed the third-fewest yards per game (315.6) and fifth-fewest points per game (20.3) in the NFL.
Week 3 was the first game between the teams, and it featured a significant lack of offense, as the Titans took home a 9-6 victory in a contest that did not feature a single touchdown.
