The Tennessee Titans need a win over the Jacksonville Jaguars to keep their slight playoff hopes alive
The Titans, who dropped a 27-13 decision at Indianapolis last week, try to rebound on Christmas Eve when another of their AFC South rivals, the Jacksonville Jaguars, come to LP Field for Saturday's Week 16 clash.
Tennessee is locked in at second place in the division behind the already- clinched Houston Texans. It stands eighth overall in the conference standings, one game and an all-important two slots behind the No. 6 New York Jets, who now hold the final Wild Card playoff position with two games remaining.
Tennessee finishes its season next week at Houston, which is already playing a third-stringer at quarterback thanks to injuries and could be in the position to rest other key players for the finale pending its own seeding position after this weekend.
Also working in the Titans' favor is the fact that the Jaguars have won just once in seven road games this season and were gashed for 41 points -- including 280 passing yards and three touchdowns through the air -- last week at Atlanta.
Game Date/Time: Sunday, December 24; 1:00pm ET
