The second and final meaning between the AFC South’s Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars comes with importance for both sides. The 8-4 Titans can inch closer to a divisional title, while the 1-11 Jaguars are going to keep trying their best with Mike Glennon and not a healthy Gardner Minshew.

Reports say Minshew begged for his starting job back with Jacksonville but it’s still Glennon and the Jags against the division-leading Titans, both with their eyes on a prize.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

With the Titans having seven more wins than Jacksonville, a large spread is in play. Oddsmakers have Tennessee as touchdown favourites, which makes even more sense once realizing the Titans are 8-2 in their last 10 against Jacksonville and 6-3-1 ATS.

But rewind to Week 2 when the Jaguars hung 30 points and nearly 500 yards of offence on Tennessee out in Nashville. But it was Minshew at quarterback and the Titans squeaked out a 33-30 win where Derrick Henry was held to 84 yards on 25 carries. Henry’s also coming off a 15-carry, 60-yard game last week so it leads to an enticing storyline out in Jacksonville.

Also of note is the total of 53 points. Tennessee leads the NFL with a 9-2-1 over record.

Tennessee Titans

However you want to look at the Titans’ 38-7 deficit and proceeding 28-3 second half against Cleveland in Week 13, it’s become clear that Ryan Tannehill deserves some credit.

The eighth-year pivot is 15-7 as the Titans’ starter and is all but set to throw a career-high in touchdown passes and in passer rating. League wide, Tannehill ranks sixth in touchdowns with 26 and fifth with a 76.9 quarterback rating, so no, it’s not Henry carrying this team.

The Titans’ issues are on defence, where they rank 25th in yards against per game and 28th in passing yards against per game. Ranking 31st in red zone defence and last in third down stops is even more troubling. That’s when it becomes no surprise they gave up 41 last week.

Jacksonville Jaguars

If the Jaguars are going to continue with Glennon, they at least better keep their offence flowing through undrafted rookie James Robinson. With 968 yards on the ground, Robinson ranks third in the NFL in rushing yards and is fourth with 1,278 yards from scrimmage. It’s even more impressive with Jacksonville ranking 30th in rushing attempts per game. Go figure.

Although with the Jags officially the NFL’s 32nd ranked defence in yards against, they may be forced to abandon the run quickly. Jacksonville surrendered 305 passing yards in Minneapolis last week, but did record a pick-six. What does this all mean? It means points should be coming in all directions.
