Last Meeting

It’s the 49th meeting between the two teams (including the postseason), with Tennessee leading the all-time series, 28-20. In the Week 3 meeting between the two teams, Tennessee linebacker Wesley Woodyard had 12 tackles and one sack and kicker Ryan Succop converted three field-goal attempts, including the game-winning 28-yard yarder with 4:06 remaining in the fourth quarter in the Titans’ 9-6 victory at Jacksonville. Marcus Mariota directed three scoring drives in relief of Blaine Gabbert, including one in the fourth quarter. Mariota improved to 5-2 against Jacksonville, his most wins against any opponent.

Why Bet on Jacksonville?

The Jags snapped a seven-game losing streak with Sunday’s 6-0 win over Indianapolis, which had won five in a row. Cody Kessler completed 18-of-24 passes for 150 yards and rushed five times for 28 yards in the upset. He committed zero turnovers in his first start in place of Blake Bortles. He nearly lost a fumble after being sacked by Denico Autry but managed to corral the loose ball with one arm. Kessler did get checked for a concussion at one point, but he never missed a snap after receiving medical clearance. Kessler had been 0-8 as a starter, with all those games coming in his rookie season with the Cleveland Browns in 2016.

The Jaguars started three backups on the offensive line and at one point lost starting right tackle Jermey Parnell, plus running back Leonard Fournette was serving a one-game suspension. He’ll be back here. Carlos Hyde rushed 13 times for 36 yards, caught his lone target for a gain of one, and lost a fumble in Fournette’s place.

The Jaguars’ elite defense — which earned the nickname Sacksonville its surprising 2017 season — showed up after a two-month absence on Sunday with a three-sack, two-turnover performance. The Jaguars stymied a Colts offense that had averaged 34.6 points per game during a five-game winning streak. Andrew Luck had thrown at least three touchdown passes in his previous eight games and had been sacked just twice since September ended. Luck had 248 yards passing but posted his lowest passer rating of the season (66.8).

Why Bet on Tennessee?

The Titans rallied for a 26-22 win over the Jets. Marcus Mariota threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Corey Davis with 36 seconds left, as Tennessee came back from a 16-point deficit. The Titans snapped a two-game skid to keep themselves on the fringes of the AFC playoff chase.

Mariota completed 20-of-35 passes for 282 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. Mariota was also the team’s leading rusher with 42 yards on five attempts. Mariota’s game-winning drive was the 11th of his four-year career. That’s the fifth-most in the NFL since his rookie season in 2015, and his total of seven game-winning drives since the start of the 2017 season is tied for the most in the NFL. The 86-yard drive against the Jets was his second-longest career game-winning drive and longer than all but a 90-yard drive against the Jaguars on Dec. 6, 2015.

Jaguars vs Titans should be a close one.

The fourth-quarter comeback would have never been possible if it wasn’t for the play of the Titans’ defense. They managed to allow only nine points in the first half despite being put in bad positions.

Since the beginning of the 2000 season, including playoffs, it was the ninth time the Titans came back to win from a deficit of nine or more points in the fourth quarter. The last time was the Titans’ playoff game at Kansas City on Jan. 6, 2018 (21-10 deficit), and the last time it happened in the regular season were at Kansas City on Dec. 18, 2016 (17-7).

The Titans recorded a season-high 403 total net yards, which included 130 rushing yards and 273 passing yards. It was their first game to hit 400 total net yards since Nov. 12, 2017, against Cincinnati (416).

The Titans’ victory against the Jets gave them 14 wins in their last 17 home games. They are 91-70 all-time at Nissan Stadium, including playoffs. The Titans will play three of their last four games in 2018 at home.
