What? How? Why? WTF? BS!
Use whatever word or acronym that you please. Why not use them all? Fact is, Tennessee Titans enthusiasts were left stunned when the Jacksonville Jaguars pulled off another upset victory against a team who was supposedly playing for either the AFC’s second wild-card berth or the AFC South division crown. The Jaguars invaded LP Field and never trailed as they pulled off the 29-27 victory.
The Jaguars won their first game this season. It’s their second win in their last 22 games. Both of them came against the Titans and Mike Munchak. Munchak has a 2-3 record against one of the NFL’s most unsuccessful franchises during the 2010s. Jake Locker left the game with a foot injury. Damian Williams and Brian Schwenke were both injured.
Quick recap: Within 90 seconds, the Jaguars took a 7-0 lead shortly after a Chris Johnson fumble (he fumbled twice). The Jaguars jumped out to 13-0, 20-7, and 22-13 leads. Chance Warmack was called for a holding penalty while Ryan Fitzpatrick was in the end zone (safety). With one last chance down 22-20 and around the 30-yard-line, Fitzpatrick was stripped off the football. Will Blackmon returned it 21 yards for the final dagger.
Making this loss sting even more? The Indianapolis Colts dropped a home game to the St. Louis Rams, 38-8. Had the Titans taken care of business against a winless division rival, that Thursday Night Football would’ve been for the AFC South lead. Now? They’ve dug themselves an even deeper hole.
Stay tuned for more thoughts about the game. Don’t expect a studs-and-duds overview because—well, if you watch the game, then it’s pretty obvious. Just a few studs that I’ll mention in the detailed recap. Offense gets an F. Defense missed too many tackles and made stupid plays so I’ll give them a D. Special teams, F as usual.
