The Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans meet Sunday in week 2 NFL action at Nissan Stadium.
The Jacksonville Jaguars look for another upset victory after beating the Indianapolis Colts in their season opener. The Jacksonville Jaguars have lost five of their last eight road games. Gardner Minshew II is completing 95 percent of his passes for 173 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions. Minshew has two or more touchdown passes in three of his last four games. Keelan Cole Sr. and Laviska Shenault Jr. have combined for 84 receiving yards and two touchdowns while James Robinson has one reception. The Jacksonville Jaguars ground game is averaging 91 yards per contest, and Robinson leads the way with 62 yards on 16 carries. Defensively, Jacksonville is allowing 20 points and 445 yards per game. Josh Jones leads the Jacksonville Jaguars with 12 tackles, Myles Jack has one sack and Andrew Wingard has one interception.
The Tennessee Titans look for a quick 2-0 start after beating the Denver Broncos in their season opener. The Tennessee Titans have won four of their last six home games. Ryan Tannehill is completing 67.4 percent of his passes for 249 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions. Tannehill has two or more touchdown passes in eight straight games. Corey Davis and Adam Humphries have combined for 148 receiving yards on 13 catches while AJ Brown has five receptions. The Tennessee Titans ground game is averaging 130 yards per contest, and Derrick Henry leads the way with 116 yards on 31 carries. Defensively, Tennessee is allowing 14 points and 323 yards per game. Kevin Byard leads the Tennessee Titans with nine tackles, Kenny Vaccaro has one tackle for loss and Harold Landry III has one tackle for loss.
The Jaguars are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games as an underdog, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games in September and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Titans are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games as a favorite, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games in September and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The over is 10-4 in Titans last 14 games overall. The Jaguars are 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Tennessee and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings.
The Tennessee Titans have won and covered five of the last six meetings against the Jaguars and that includes a 22-point beatdown when they last met back in November. However, the Titans just don't have the play style that produces blowout victories consistently, as they're more of an old school team that relies on physical defense and a ground and pound running game. The Jacksonville Jaguars also looked good in their season opener against a team that has playoff hopes this season, and Minshew has played well when healthy. This simply feels like too many points. Give me the Jags and the 10 free points.
