It has been a difficult year for the Tennessee Titans as the team is 2-7 entering play. They have struggled at home with a 0-5 mark but are 2-2 on the road. These teams have split their two regular season meetings the past five years. After their 34-28 road victory at New Orleans two weeks ago the Titans hosted the Carolina Panthers last week and fell 27-10. The offense has been stagnant in recent weeks as the team has been held to ten point or fewer in four of their past five games. The only game where they got over 10 points was their win against the worst defensive team in the NFL in the Saints. The Titans are 30th in the NFL in total offense as they gain only 324 yards per game on the season. The defensive play has been better as the club is fifth in total defense by allowing 326 yards to their opponents.
The Jacksonville Jaguars surprisingly finds itself in the midst of an AFC South division race with a record of 3-6. They sit just one game back of the Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans atop the division. They have won two of their past three games after a 22-20 victory on the road last week at the Baltimore Ravens. It was a better defensive performance by the team as they had given up 28 or greater points in their previous four games. As a result the Jaguars are 30th and third worst in the NFL in scoring defense by allowing 28.3 points per game. Offensively the team ranks in the lower third in most categories on the campaign.
