Defense Bends, Offense Dominates

The Titans defense did not break against a struggling Jaguars offense and their embattled head coach Urban Meyer. Yet, despite a defensive touchdown in the first series of the game, DL Teair Tart busting up a 4th and 1 run on Jacksonville’s one yard line and a 37-19 final score, the game was closer than it should have been.

Rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence threw for 273 yards and rushed for a touchdown while RB James Robinson ran for 149 yards. The Titans defense gave up 454 total yards, forcing the Jags to punt just two times.

For all that, the glass over flowed for the Titans offensively. Derrick Henry found the end zone three times, rushing for 130 yards. More impressively–in light of offensive woes inside the 20 yard line–all of the Titans four touchdowns came in the red zone. Ryan Tannehill kept the chains moving with quick passes and a few short, opportunistic scrambles. He finished the contest 14 of 22 for 197 yards with one touchdown and zero interceptions.
