Jaguars vs. Titans 2013: Tennessee plays 'uninspired' in defeat

Wesley Hitt

Jacksonville earned its first win of the season against an unsuspecting Titans squad.

On Sunday, the Jacksonville Jaguars broke through with their first win of the 2013 season, beating the Tennessee Titans 29-27 at Tennessee's LP Field.

Jacksonville only gained 214 total yards but took advantage of four Tennessee turnovers, including a Ryan Fitzpatrick fumble with 2:32 remaining, which Will Blackmon ran into the end zone to make the score 29-20 and secure the win.

The Jaguars knocked out Jake Locker in the first half, who exited with a foot injury. Fitzpatrick came in and completed 22 of 33 passes, but could not engineer a victory.

Over at Big Cat Country, Adam Stites writes about the defensive effort on Sunday:

Instead it was the defense that was responsible for nine points in the fourth quarter to preserve the victory. A holding penalty forced by Sen'Derrick Marks gave the team a safety, while a sack, forced fumble returned for a touchdown by cornerback Will Blackmon ended any remaining Tennessee hopes for a victory.

For Tennessee, the loss is crushing. The Titans are now a full game out of the sixth and final seed in the AFC and could be without Locker for the season. At 4-5, Tennessee faces the daunting task of facing the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night.

Jimmy Morris of Music City Miracles expressed complete devastation:

This team plays uninspired football entirely too often.  That is on Mike Munchak.  It is time for him to go.

I really don't have much to say in the form of a recap.  The Titans lost all phases of the game to a team that is now 1-8.  What else is there to say?
