By Jawuan Williams

Titans look to continue their undefeated streak in the AFC South as the Jacksonville Jaguars come into town in this Week 14 divisional matchup. Kickoff for Sunday, December 13, 2022 at Nissan Stadium is 12:00 CDT.

The teams have met a total of 55 times, with the Titans holding a 34-21 advantage. For eight consecutive seasons (2009–2016), the Titans and Jaguars split the annual series before Tennessee took both matchups in 2017 and 2018. In 2019, they exchanged wins once again before the Titans took both games in 2020 and 2021.

The Losing Must Stop

The Titans are hoping to get back in the win column after losing to the Philadelphia Eagles 35-10. The Titans had no answer for the former Titan receiver A.J. Brown as he ended the day with 8 receptions for 119 yards and two touchdowns. The Eagles were only the second team to score 22 or more points against the Titans secondary this season.

Tannehill passed for 141 yards and the touchdown to Burks without throwing an interception. His 97.0 passer rating gave him four consecutive games with a passer rating above 90.0. Nine different Titans caught at least one pass in the contest.

Jacksonville Jaguars 

Last week the Jaguars traveled to Detroit, where they fell by a final score of 40-14. The Lions totaled 31 first downs and 437 total yards and controlled the ball for nearly 37 minutes. Prior to the loss at Detroit, the Jaguars won two of their previous three games, dropping the Las Vegas Raiders on Nov. 6 and the Baltimore Ravens on Nov. 27.

3 Keys To Victory

1. Off-Ense.

The Titans offense got a spectacular touchdown catch from Treylon Burks on Sunday against the Eagles, and scored 3 points the rest of the game. There was no rhythm to the offense, and this must improve if you aim to beat the jaguars.

2. “Jag Lag”

 Jacksonville comes into the game unsure of the status of QB Trevor Lawrence, but the titans can’t overlook them. It is a divisional game that can go a long way to settling the divisional race.

3. “Remember Who You Are”

The Titans have lost 2 games in a row, and looked lethargic in Philadelphia, as the Eagles pushed them around on both sides of the ball. The Titans must regain their identity of a smash mouth football team that will fight you for 60 minutes.
