The Jaguars enter this Thursday Night matchup sporting a 4-8 record that pegs them as the worst team in the AFC South. Despite all the hype surrounding their defense, Jacksonville is getting consistently outscored by their opponents. Granted, they did manage to pull one over the Indianapolis Colts 6-0 this past weekend. However, that small of a win over that weak of opponent didn’t do much for their ailing fans. Ultimately Jacksonville needs someone better than Blake Bortles leading their offense. Although Bortles is capable of making big plays, he’s far too inconsistent to lead this team to a Super Bowl. Which is a shame, considering just how much talent there is on this roster.
Players to Watch: Blake Bortles (2,572 passing yards, 13 TD, 10 INT), TJ Yeldon (401 rushing yards, 1 TD, 1 F), and Donte Moncrief (557 receiving yards, 3 TD, 37 REC).
The Titans enter this Thursday action flashing a 6-6 record that ranks them 3rd overall in the AFC South. With the 9-3 Houston Texans leading the division, it’s clear that the Titans are too far away to win the South this time around. Nevertheless, Tennessee can still vie to finish 2018 with an above .500 record. This would be huge for a franchise that is looking to get better year by year. As for this Thursday’s contest, the numbers make it clear that this might be a deadlock matchup. Right now the Jags are scoring 16.9 per game, which is slightly less than the 18.4 figure that Tennessee delivers. Defensively things are even tighter with the Titans giving up 20.4 and the Jags allotting 20.3.
Players to Watch: Marcus Mariota (2,168 passing yards, 11 TD, 7 INT), Derrick Henry (474 rushing yards, 5 TD, 0 F), and Corey Davis (744 receiving yards, 4 TD, 52 REC).
