The Jacksonville Jaguars received their first win of the season upsetting the Tennessee Titans 29-27. Titan fans have every right to be disappointed in this loss, because it was a chance for the Tennessee to create separation from several other AFC teams fighting for a wild card spot.
From the opening kickoff, Tennessee looked flat on both sides of the ball. The offensive line had trouble holding their blocks, while the Tennessee quarterbacks were under duress all game. Not only was the offensive line poor, but Tennessee’s skill players failed to bring much to the table either. Runningback Chris Johnson fumbled early as did both quarterbacks Locker and Fitzgerald. The titans gave up a devastating seventeen points off of turnovers. And to add insult to injury Tennessee may have lost their starting quarterback Jake Locker for the rest of the season. Locker exited the game in the first half due to a severe foot injury.
The Titans look to bounce back from their disappointing performance on Thursday, Nov. 14 when they take on Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts. Indianapolis is coming off a surprising 38-8 loss to the Saint Louis Rams.
Despite losing to the then winless Jaguars, the Titans still have a chance at winning the AFC south division title. If that’s going to be the case, Tennessee must find a way to slow down Indy’s high powered offense which is currently averaging twenty-four points a game.
