Introduction

It’s a battle of AFC South teams on the gridiron in the Volunteer State. The Jacksonville Jaguars are on the road as they travel to take on the Tennessee Titans Sunday afternoon. Jacksonville was clubbed 33-13 on the road by Indianapolis last Sunday in their previous contest. Tennessee was on their bye last week: they defeated Kansas City 35-32 at home in their last game on November 10. The Titans lead the all-time regular-season series between the teams 28-21 but it was Jacksonville winning the first meeting between the teams this season, prevailing 20-7 at home on September 19.

Jacksonville Jaguars Review

Jacksonville started the season slowly but bounced back with four wins in their last six games to get back to the .500 mark at the halfway point of the season. Things haven’t been as kind in the last couple of weeks, dropping them back to 4-6 on the year.  The Jaguars opened the season with a 40-26 home loss to Kansas City in a game that saw Nick Foles knocked out with a broken collarbone. Jacksonville followed that with their road loss to Houston on a failed two-point conversion attempt in the final minute of the game. Jacksonville then knocked off Tennessee at home (20-7) and upended Denver (26-24) in a game with a wild fourth quarter. The Jaguars missed chances in one-score losses to Carolina (34-27) on the road and New Orleans (13-6) at home before taking down the Bengals 27-17 on the road. Jacksonville defeated the Jets (29-15) at home before going to London to face the Texans. The Jaguars were whipped 26-3 to head into their bye on a sour note.

Coming out of the bye, the decision was made to go back to Foles over Gardner Minshew II at quarterback. The Jaguars struggled against Indianapolis as they were unable to stop the run game of the Colts. Jacksonville jumped ahead 7-0 on a 34-yard touchdown pass from Foles to D.J. Chark but gave up the next 31 unanswered points to put the game away. In fact, Jacksonville didn’t score again until there were 59 seconds remaining in the game and even then, they gave up two points on an interception return on the two-point conversion. The Jaguars were beaten 389-308 in total offense, gave up 23 first downs while picking up 15 and lost time of possession 33:52 to 26:08 in the game. That negated the fact that the Jaguars forced two turnovers while committing only one in the contest. Jacksonville’s run defense was awful as they allowed 264 yards on the ground.

Tennessee Titans Review

Tennessee has been an up and down team all season long and that’s part of the reason they’re hovering around the .500 mark on the season. The Titans opened the season by dismantling Cleveland 43-13 on the road before falling 19-17 at home to Indianapolis and 20-7 on the road to Jacksonville on a Thursday night. Tennessee bounced back by dominating Atlanta 24-10 on the road to get back to .500 but losses at home to Buffalo (14-7) and on the road at Denver (16-0) left them 2-4 on the season. The Titans rebounded with close home victories over the Chargers (23-20) and the Buccaneers (27-23) to get to the .500 mark on the season before losing on the road (30-20) to Carolina. That set up Tennessee to face Kansas City in the return of Patrick Mahomes in their last game before the bye.

The Titans dug a 10-0 hole after the opening quarter only to fight back to a 13-13 tie at the half against the Chiefs offensive attack. Tennessee trailed 29-20 with 11:54 to play and was down 32-27 with 3:14 to go before mounting a drive. The Titans went 61 yards in four plays after a botched field goal attempt led to intentional grounding called on the holder for the Chiefs. That drive was capped by a 23-yard touchdown pass to Adam Humphries, followed by a Ryan Tannehill run for the two-point conversion. Kansas City mounted one last drive but Joshua Kalu blocked a potential game-tying field goal as time expired to preserve the victory. Tennessee lost the total offense battle 530-371, gave up 28 first downs to their 19 and lost time of possession by a 37:52 to 22:08 margin yet still prevailed. Both teams turned the ball over once but the Titans made the big plays late to earn the win.

The Running Game

Jacksonville Jaguars Running Offense
vs. Tennessee Titans Running Defense

Jacksonville Jaguars Running Offense

Jacksonville has been good on the ground this season, racking up more than 100 yards on the ground in five of their 10 games this season. The Jaguars have picked up at least 74 yards in nine of their 10 contests on the year and have gone over the 200-yard mark twice this season, highlighted by 269 yards against the Broncos back in week 4. Jacksonville is 3-2 when they run for at least 100 yards: they ran 44 times for 216 yards against the Bengals in week seven and 34 times for 111 yards against the Jets in week eight. Last week against the Colts, Jacksonville ran the ball just nine times for a season-low 29 yards as they dug a deep hole, necessitating a pass-first approach. In the first meeting against the Titans, the Jaguars ran the ball 20 times for 88 yards back in week three.

Leonard Fournette is the workhorse back in the ground game for Jacksonville. He leads the team with 182 carries for 854 yards and a touchdown this season. Gardner Minshew II has added 42 carries for 235 yards on the ground: there’s not much production beyond that. Ryquell Armstead, the backup to Fournette, has 21 carries for 65 yards at this point of the year. Jacksonville has nine run plays that have covered at least 20 yards: Fournette has six, Minshew has two and DJ Chark Jr. (two carries, 20 yards) has the other. Jacksonville has moved the chains via the ground game 53 times this season.

Tennessee Titans Run Defense

Tennessee has been hurt by the run game this season but they may get a bit of a respite in this contest. The Titans have given up at least 100 yards in six of their 10 games this season on the ground with two games where they have allowed at least 150 yards on the ground. Tennessee has given up at least 100 yards in three of their last five games, sandwiched around holding the Chargers to 39 yards. The Titans held the Chiefs to 25 carries for 97 yards in their final game before the bye. With two weeks to prepare, you have to think Tennessee knows what to expect from the Jaguars.

Rashaan Evans leads the team with 82 tackles (50 solo) along with a fumble recovery for a score from his linebacker spot this season. Logan Ryan (74 tackles, three forced fumbles), Jayon Brown (53 tackles), along with safeties Kenny Vaccaro (55 tackles) and Kevin Byard (52 tackles) help round out the top five in the tackle department. Harold Landry III (47 tackles, forced fumble, two fumble recoveries) leads the team with 11 tackles for loss. Evans puts up 7.5 tackles for loss while Ryan is right behind him with 5.5 tackles for loss on the season. As a team, Tennessee has 56 tackles for loss, seven forced fumbles and six fumble recoveries with one fumble return for a score so far this season.

Who has the Edge?

Jacksonville abandoned the run last week as the score put them in a big hole thanks to shoddy work from the defense. One has to wonder if, with Foles back, if they'll back off the run-heavy attack we saw deployed at times when Minshew was in there. Fournette has become more utilized in the passing attack and perhaps trying to get him the ball with a little momentum is the game plan. Tennessee has been fair against the run and kept the Jaguars to 88 yards in the first meeting. Look for the Titans to have the upper hand here.

Advantage: Tennessee Titans

Tennessee Titans Running Offense
vs. Jacksonville Jaguars Running Defense

Tennessee Titans Running Offense

Tennessee has been up and down with the ground game this season as they have to be more committed to the run. The Titans have run for more than 100 yards in five of their games this season but they haven’t run for more than 138 yards in a game. Tennessee has two other games where they ran for at least 91 yards. The run game has sputtered in the past month as the team has run for 100 yards just once in their last four games. Tennessee didn’t do much against Denver (21 carries, 39 yards), Los Angeles (29 carries, 97 yards) and Tampa Bay (21 carries, 72 yards) before having a decent showing in the last couple of games. The Titans ran the ball 21 times for 121 yards and two scores against the Panthers. In their final game before the bye, Tennessee pounded Kansas City for 225 yards on 26 carries, an 8.7 yard per carry average.

Derrick Henry leads the team with 187 carries for 832 yards and eight scores on the season. Marcus Mariota is second on the team with 24 carries for 129 yards while Dion Lewis (21 carries, 77 yards) and Ryan Tannehill (19 carries, 83 yards, TD) are next in line. As a team, the Titans have four run plays that have covered at least 20 yards: Henry has three of them while Tannehill has the other one. Tennessee has moved the chains via the run game a total of 55 times on the year.

Jacksonville Jaguars Run Defense

Jacksonville has been hurt by the run this season as they’ve given up more than 100 yards six times in their 10 games this season. The Jaguars have been gouged for more than 200 yards three times this season, including a season-worst 285 yards against Carolina back in week five. After bouncing back by allowing just one 100-yard rushing game in their next three weeks, Jacksonville has slumped again. The Jaguars were carved up for 216 yards (6.4 yard per carry average) by Houston going into the bye before giving up 264 yards (7.3 yard per carry average) coming out of it by Indianapolis.

Safety Ronnie Harrison is second on the team in tackles this season with 54 (32 solo), plus a fumble recovery. Myles Jack (team-high 59 tackles), Jarrod Wilson (48 tackles, forced fumble), Calais Campbell (39 tackles, forced fumble) and A.J. Bouye (46 tackles) are next in line to disrupt opposing offenses. Campbell leads the team with 9.5 tackles for loss while rookie Josh Allen (27 tackles, two forced fumbles) has eight and Yannick Ngakoue (27 tackles, two forced fumbles) adds nine of his own. As a team, the Jaguars have racked up 57 tackles for loss, forced eight fumbles and recovered four this season.

  • 30th in longest rush allowed (84 yards)

Who has the Edge?

This one points one way so heavily it's a surprise that the arrow didn't break when it snapped in that direction. Jacksonville is 29th against the run, dead last in yards per carry allowed and has given up 480 yards on the ground in their last two games. Both those contests came against division rivals. Tennessee just realized that they should be handing the ball over more to Henry, who torched the Jaguars in the second meeting between the teams last season. He blasted the Chiefs last week and the Titans should have similar success here.

Advantage: Tennessee Titans

The Passing Game

Jacksonville Jaguars Passing Offense
vs. Tennessee Titans Passing Defense

Jacksonville Jaguars Passing Offense

Jacksonville has been effective going to the air despite having to go most of the way so far with a rookie quarterback. The Jaguars have only gone over 300 yards through the air three times this season but they have been effective at moving the ball. Jacksonville has been effective moving the ball via the air over the past month or so. The Jaguars have thrown for more than 250 yards in each of their last four games, highlighted by a 309-yard showing against Houston in the final game before the bye. Last week in Foles’ return, Jacksonville picked up 296 yards through the air in a loss.

Nick Foles was the expected starter under center but he broke his collarbone against the Chiefs: he’s just returned last week after being out since the opener. He is 38 of 55 for 371 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. Foles has been sacked twice for a loss of 17 yards. That means “The Mustache”, Gardner Minshew, ran the offense the majority of the season. He has hit 188 of 307 passes for 2,285 yards with 13 touchdowns and four interceptions while getting sacked 21 times for a loss of 113 yards this season. D.J. Chark Jr. leads the team with 51 receptions for 796 yards with eight scores this season. Fournette (47 receptions, 329 yards), Dede Westbrook (36 catches, 415 yards, TD), Chris Conley (29 grabs, 519 yards, two TD) and Keelan Cole (13 receptions, 154 yards, two TD) are quality secondary options. The Jaguars have 38 pass plays that have covered at least 20 yards this season: Chark Jr. leads the team with 15 such plays while Conley adds 10 and Westbrook seven on the year.

Tennessee Titans Passing Defense

Tennessee has been pretty good against the pass this season. The Titans have allowed more than 300 yards through the air four times in their 10 games this season: they have won all four of those contests. In the last five games, Tennessee has given up more than 300 yards three times as they allowed 329 yards to the Chargers in week seven and 301 to Tampa Bay in week eight. The Titans were better against the pass in week nine as they allowed 232 yards against the Panthers, though they ended up with the loss. In the game against Kansas City, Tennessee was gashed for a season-worst 446 yards through the air by the returning Patrick Mahomes.Tennessee has at least one sack in nine of their 10 games and has at least three sacks in six games this season.

Landry III leads the team with seven sacks on the season. Ryan contributes 3.5 sacks on the year while Cameron Wake (four tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss) adds 2.5 sacks of his own so far. Ryan leads the team with 15 pass defenses on the season. Malcolm Butler (32 tackles, tackle for loss) has nine pass defenses though he was placed on injured reserve after breaking his wrist against Carolina. Byard has seven pass defenses while Brown adds six. Ryan and Byard each have three interceptions to share the team lead: Butler (TD) has two while Landry III has one this season. As a team, Tennessee has 27 sacks, 52 pass defenses and nine interceptions with one pick-six on the books.

  • 16th in passer rating allowed (90.5)
  • 19th in net yards per pass attempt (6.9)

Who has the Edge?

Jacksonville has been pretty good through the air but their offensive line has to hold up and give Foles time to throw. The Jaguars have a trio of solid targets in Chark, Westbrook and Conley. Tennessee has a solid secondary led by Byard and Ryan but the loss of Butler is a blow to them. The Titans have to be more aggressive at rushing the passer and not leaving the secondary hung out to dry. Minshew got the better of them in the first meeting and he was making his second career start. Foles has experience, which can make him all the more dangerous.

Advantage: Jacksonville Jaguars

Tennessee Titans Passing Offense
vs. Jacksonville Jaguars Passing Defense

Tennessee Titans Passing Offense

Tennessee has found a more effective passing game of late after an inconsistent start to the season. The Titans had just one 300-yard passing game in their first six games this season but after a quarterback switch during the loss to Denver, things have started to click a bit. Tennessee has gone over the 300-yard mark in two of their last four games. The Titans threw for 323 yards against the Chargers in week seven and followed that up with a season-high 331 yards against the Panthers in week nine. Against the Chiefs in week 10, Tennessee threw for 181 yards but the ground game did its job: the Titans threw only 19 passes.

Ryan Tannehill is 97 of 136 passing for 1,161 yards with eight touchdowns and four interceptions on the year. He has been sacked 17 times for 127 yards in losses on the year. Marcus Mariota is 94 of 159 for 1,179 yards with seven touchdowns and two interceptions on the season: he’s been sacked 25 times for a loss of 162 yards. Punter Brett Kern completed his lone pass for 11 yards. Adam Humphries leads the team with 33 receptions for 341 yards plus a score on the season. Corey Davis (28 catches, 374 yards, two TD), A.J. Brown (27 receptions, 446 yards, three TD), Delanie Walker (21 grabs, 215 yards, two TD) and Jonnu Smith (22 catches, 287 yards, TD) are solid secondary options. The Titans have 33 pass plays that have covered at least 20 yards this season: Brown and Smith (18 catches, 257 yards, TD) each have six to share the team lead. Davis adds five while Humphries has four.

Jacksonville Jaguars Passing Defense

Jacksonville has been up and down against the pass but they have been much better lately. After giving up three 300-yard games in the first four weeks of the season, the Jaguars have held their last six opponents to under 280 yards through the air. Jacksonville has closed down on the pass of late, mainly because teams have battered them with the run. In the last six games, the Bengals have the highest passing output against them at 276 yards with most of those coming with the game decided. Last week, Jacksonville allowed only 148 yards through the air to the Colts though they were mangled by the run. The Jaguars have at least two sacks in seven of their 10 games this season.

Allen leads the team with eight sacks on the year. Campbell chips in 5.5 sacks while Ngakoue adds five and Dawaune Smoot (13 tackles, four tackles for loss) has four sacks. Tre Herndon (38 tackles, tackle for loss) leads the team with seven pass defenses while Harrison and Bouye each have five this season. Jack and D.J. Hayden (32 tackles, forced fumble) add four apiece. Herndon and Harrison lead the team with two picks each while Jack, Bouye, Wilson and Ngakoue (TD) each have one this season. As a team, the Jaguars have 33 sacks, 35 pass defenses and eight interceptions, with one pick-six on the year.

  • Tied for 11th in INT (seven)
  • 5th in sacks (33)
  • 12th in passer rating allowed (88)
  • 14th in net yards per pass attempt (6.6)

Who has the Edge?

There are a couple ways to look at this. Jacksonville has been good against the pass of late, which could make things tough for Tannehill, especially with an inconsistent receiving corps. On the flip side, part of the reason the Jaguars have been good against the pass is that they haven't faced a ton of passes. They've been torched by the run the last couple of weeks. In a similar situation in the Titans' last game, they turned to the run against the Chiefs and didn't have to throw much. This one is a wash.

Advantage: Push

Intangibles

Jacksonville Jaguars

Jacksonville is currently 26th in the league in scoring offense as they put up an average of 18.9 points per game on the season.

Jacksonville currently stands 10th in the league in time of possession as they hold the ball 51.19 percent of the time.

Josh Lambo has connected on 13 of 14 extra point attempts and 22 of 23 field goal attempts with a long of 48 yards this season.

The Titans are 26th in the league in total offense with 319.4 yards per game and stand 20th in yards per play with 5.4 yards per snap. Tennessee is seventh in the league in scoring defense as they give up an average of 19.7 points per contest.

Tennessee is tied for 7th in the takeaway/giveaway department as they are a +5 on the season.

Cairo Santos hit all 12 extra point attempts but was four of nine on field goals with a long of 53: he was cut after missing four field goal tries against the Bills. Cody Parkey was five of six on extra points and hit all three field goal attempts with a long of 51. Ryan Succop has hit five of six extra point tries but is zero for three on field goals this year.

Dane Cruikshank blocked an extra point against the Panthers in week nine. Joshua Kalu blocked a potential game-tying field goal as time expired against the Chiefs in week 10.

Who has the Edge?

This one comes down to a couple critical things. While Lambo gives the Titans a massive edge in the kicking game, Kern is nearly as good for Tennessee in the punting department. The Titans have blocked a pair of kicks in their last two games so that is something that bears watching. With that said, Tennessee is #1 in the league in red zone TD percentage while Jacksonville is dead last. The Jaguars can't trade threes for sevens and hope to win this one. Jacksonville has to finish drives but until they prove they can pull that off, you have to fade them a bit.

Advantage: Tennessee Titans

Final Outlook

Jacksonville won the first meeting between the teams this season as they sacked Mariota nine times and made life miserable for the Tennessee offense. The Titans have been better with Tannehill under center and have had two weeks to prepare for this one. Tennessee also has the momentum from their win over the Chiefs heading into the bye. Jacksonville has been atrocious against the run, which is Tennessee's bread and butter. If Henry gets going as he did against the Chiefs, it's going to be a long day for Jacksonville. The Jaguars can ill afford to have things go like last week, where they threw 47 passes against nine runs.

According to Covers.com, the Jaguars are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in Week 12, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing more than 150 yards rushing in their previous game and 1-6-2 ATS in their last 9 games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game. I'm not convinced that Jacksonville's run defense can suddenly return to form and slow down the Tennessee run game. Look for Henry to run wild and help the Titans earn the win.

Prediction: Tennessee Titans -3

Additional Insiders' Best Bets

Full-game Total Bet

Insiders Status:

Rating:

We're looking at a pair of subpar offensive attacks in this contest as both teams are in the bottom third of the league in scoring offense. The first matchup between the teams this season ended up 20-7 in favor of Jacksonville, so there's not a ton of optimism for an offensive bonanza. Jacksonville has scored just 16 points combined in their last two games and has been held to 13 points or less four times this season. While Tennessee has four straight games with at least 20 points, the stretch right before that saw them score seven points or less in three of four games. Should we have any faith in the offenses in this contest?

The under is 5-0 in the Jaguars' last 5 games after allowing more than 30 points in their previous game, 5-0 in their last 5 games after allowing less than 150 yards passing in their previous game and 5-1 in their last 6 games after allowing more than 150 yards rushing in their previous game. Tennessee has seen the under go 4-1 in their last 5 games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game. Look for this one to be a 24-13 type of game at best offensively, keeping it under the mark.

Prediction: Under 41.5
