The Jacksonville Jaguars having already locked up the AFC South and the right to host a playoff game headed into Tennessee looking to spoil the Titans chances of making the playoffs.

This is a tale of two teams with two different focuses. The Titans were playing for their playoff lives as the Jags looking to avoid injuries heading into the playoffs.

After a scoreless first quarter,tThe Titans came out swinging first when Marcus Mariota would connect with RB Derrick Henry for a 66 yard TD. The Titans would have the extra point blocked. Jaguars kicker Josh Lambo cut the Titans lead in half with a 41 yard field goal.

The Tians would score two more field goals to take a 12-3 halftime lead. In the third quarter the Tiatans would tack on another field goal to go up 15-3.

In the fourth the Jags defense would make things interesting when Yannick Ngakoue would scoop up a Marcus Mariota fumble for 67 yards to make it a one score game 15-10.

However the Jaguars weren’t able to score again the rest of the game as Blake Bortles 2 interceptions were costly as the Titans would win 15-10.

The Jags will face the Bills who took out the Dolphins in Miami to clinch their spot after the Bengals beat the Ravens. If you thought the Jags have had a playoff drought the Bills are making the playoffs for the first time since 1999.
