Jaguars vs. Titans, Week 17: Tennessee ends season on positive note

It may have been a meaningless game between the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, but fans are taking some positives from the Titans' victory.

In what was one of the more irrelevant games Week 17, the Tennessee Titans defeated the woeful Jacksonville Jaguars, 38-20, at LP Field Sunday while only needing to score one offensive touchdown.

The day belonged to Titans linebacker Zach Brown, who racked up four tackles, a sack and two interceptions that were both returned for touchdowns. Brown, the Titans' second-round pick in the 2012 season, finished an impressive rookie season where he was second on the team with 68 solo tackles and registered 5.5 sacks.

The defense was able to get pressure on the Jaguars all afternoon, as they were able to get six sacks in addition to the key turnovers by Brown.

Also helping the Titans' cause was Darius Reynaud returning back-to-back punts for touchdowns.

Since Tennessee had been eliminated from playoff contention for awhile, the completion of the regular season now gives fans the time to assess the current situation with the Titans. The folks over at Music City Miracles provide their theories of what could possibly happen this offseason.

Bud still has a lot of big decisions to make: I don't see how he looks at this season a doesn't fire someone, but a big time hire to fill the empty hole at OC might be enough of a shake-up to assuage the old man. For my money, if you're going to keep Munch and Gray, go out and throw the bank at Norv Turner the minute he's fired in San Diego. Turner is the offensive version of Wade Phillips (mediocre-to-awful head coach, but a savant as a coordinator). That hire would excite the fanbase, and brining in the guy who has been scheming for Antonio Gates just might be enough of a change to convince Cook to resign.
