The Tennessee Titans have nothing to play for, and they’re a depressed team that’s piling up the losses and dealing with injuries. It wouldn’t be surprising to see the Titans just roll over in this game and take off for vacation. The Jacksonville Jaguars clinch their second playoff berth since 2008 with a victory here, so you can expect a motivated side with a packed house. The Jags are firing on all cylinders right now, and that defense has allowed a combined 6 points in their last 2 games. This could get ugly for the Titans. I’ll lay the chalk.
