It is an AFC South battle on Thursday Night Football between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans. The Jaguars are at the bottom of the division at 4-8, while the Titans are sitting at 6-6. The Jags have the opportunity to play spoiler for the Titans playoff hopes if they can win this game.  

The Jaguars 6-0 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, Dec. 2, snapped their five-game losing skid and showed a rejuvenated defense. With the Jags ranking third in overall defense in the league, they are looking for revenge after losing to Tennessee earlier this season at home, 9-6.

Both teams are struggling on the offensive side of the ball this season. The Titans offense is ranked 28 in the NFL and the Jaguars are ranked 24 in total offense. With Quarterback Blake Bortles riding the pine, Cody Kessler, a journeyman Quarterback who has a career 1-8 record as a starter, will get the nod as the starter after winning his first career game against the Colts. Kessler was used in a game manager role in the Colts game, firing quick passes and feeding the ball to the Running Backs to move the chains.

With Running Back Leonard Fournette back from his one-game suspension, the team looks to have a heavy run offense if the Jaguars O-Line can make their blocks. This game should be a low scoring affair that may come down to a Josh Lambo field goal late in the game.
