Are you ready for some AFC South football? We hope so. Because that’s what you’re getting on Thursday night. The seemingly annual Thursday Night clash between the Titans and Jaguars is here, and it is probably not going to be spectacular, given the recent history of what games between these two teams has looked like. But what this game could be, though, is important.
The Titans are 6-6 and hanging on the edges of the AFC playoff race. If they manage to get a badly-needed win this week, it could propel them back into the picture — especially when you consider what their upcoming schedule looks like. The Jags are 4-8 and almost surely out of the playoffs, but this is the first of four opportunities for them to spoil the hopes of playoff wannabes down the stretch.
The Titans (6-6) posted a much-needed (and expected) win over the Jets. They remain in the playoff race and have a favorable schedule with three of their final four games at home. Mariota has been on a hot streak, throwing eight touchdown passes and two interceptions in his last five games.
The Jaguars (4-8) defeated the Indianapolis Colts 6-0 to snap a seven-game losing streak. The Jaguars defense finally performed the way it had been expected to play throughout the season. The defense shut out the Colts, who entered the game averaging 34 points a game during their five-game winning streak.
