Mike Lundin’s Titans vs. Jaguars Free Pick
Start Time: September 17, 2017, 1:00 PM EST
The Jacksonville Jaguars dominated the Texans 29-7 at Houston in Week 1 while the Tennessee Titans suffered a 26-16 home loss to Oakland.
The Jaguars held Houston to only 203 total yards in their victory and sacked the Texans QB no less than 10 times! The Titans struggled against the Raiders and QB Marcus Mariota left the gridiron completing 25-of-41 passes for 256 yards with no touchdown passes. It’s concerning that they struggled to crack the Raiders D which is nowhere near the top of the league, and I don’t see them having much success here against a much stronger Jags D.
The Titans did a decent enough job defensively last week considering what they were up against; a team that ranked 6th in total yards last season. I don’t think they’ll have any trouble shutting down Blake Bortles who completed only 11-of-21 passes for 125 yards with one touchdown last week. The Titans 22-year old rookie running back Leonard Fournette rushed for 100 yards on 26 carries in his debut, but I wouldn’t count him being consistent with the big boys just yet.
I think we’ll see a low-scoring contest in this all AFC South battle Sunday afternoon.
My free pick is on the Under.
