Don't look now, but the winless Jacksonville Jaguars hold a six-point lead over the Tennessee Titans at halftime. Could the glorious march to 0-16 come to an end before we even get to Thanksgiving? Even with the six-point Jags lead, Bovada still set the second half line at Titans -7.
The 0-8 Jaguars lead the 4-4 Titans, 13-7, and are in position for their first win since Nov. 25, 2012. That victory, coincidentally, also came against the Titans.
Maurice Jones-Drew rushed for a six-yard touchdown and Josh Scobee hit field goals of 32 and 44 yards, respectively, to build a 13-0 lead early in the second quarter. Ryan Fitzpatrick then threw a touchdown to Taylor Thompson at the end of the half to pull the Titans back into the game.
Fitzpatrick is playing place of Jake Locker, who has been forced out of the game with a foot injury.
The Jacksonville defense has played well, forcing the Titans into three turnovers -- two of them by Locker -- in the first half. Fitzpatrick has played well in relief, however, going 5-of-5 with a touchdown after replacing Locker.
