The Tennessee Titans have an awful taste in their mouths this week, having lost to the now one-win Indianapolis Colts last weekend. They'll be able to wash away that taste a little bit this weekend if they are able to defeat a fellow AFC South member, the Jacksonville Jaguars, at home. The Titans opened are 9.5 point favorites over the Jaguars, according to Odds Shark, but the line has shifted down to 7.5-8 points.
The Titans are looking to make up for the opening season loss to the Jaguars, 16-14. However, the Jaguars have fallen into despair and have not Blaine Gabbert perform well as a rookie. The Titans expect Matt Hasselbeck to be ready for the game, which means we shouldn't expect a rookie showdown between Gabbert and Jake Locker.
The over/under for this game stands and 40 points, a cautious estimate given the lacking of scoring punch for each team. The Titans average slightly less than 20 points while the Jaguars struggle to reach 15.
