Point Spread Pick : The Titans put up a valiant fight at home last week against the Cardinals taking Arizona to overtime before losing by 3. Tennessee has been competitive on the road this season going 3-4 with only the loss to the Broncos being by more than one score.
The Jaguars had a first and goal from the one late in the game and couldn’t punch it in to tie up the game against Buffalo ending their 3-game win streak. They gave up a few big plays to the Bills especially in the running game that proved costly and will have to do a much better job this week against the Titans rushing attack with RB Chris Johnson.
Jacksonville is banged up on both sides of the ball, but is playing with heart. They have already beaten Tennessee earlier this season and there is no reason to think that the Jaguars cannot be in this throughout.
