Joshua: Jaguars are an easy team to poke fun at. With that said, Titans fans have found nothing funny about Jacksonville’s habit of splitting regular-season matchups with Tennessee. The Jaguars have earned home victories in each of the last two season’s against Tennessee. The Week 1 loss from 2011 wound up costing the Titans the AFC’s second wild-card berth.
What is it that makes Jacksonville so competitive against Tennessee, especially when they play at EverBank Field?

Daniel: It’s hard to say the Jaguars have a home field advantage, especially this year where the Jaguars have been outscored by 78 points in three games. In previous years the Jaguars had pretty decent defensive line play, which was enough against Chris Johnson and a young Jake Locker. The defensive line has not played nearly as well so far in 2013.
