Jaguars vs. Titans 2013 picks and predictions: Experts divided, with the edge to Tennessee

NFL experts seem to favor the Tennessee Titans over the Jacksonville Jaguars for Week 16, but it's a narrow margin.

Don McPeak-USA TODAY Sports

The Tennessee Titans will travel to EverBank Field to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in a Week 16 matchup on Sunday. Jacksonville is 4-10 on the season and well out of the playoff race (though not mathematically eliminated until recently), but this season has been entirely about Gus Bradley showing that he can get his team to play well for the future.

Tennessee is 5-9, and was eliminated from the playoffs after Week 15. The Titans trailed the Arizona Cardinals for much of the game, but managed a comeback to force overtime. Unfortunately, a turnover put the Cardinals in field goal position and the Titans' hopes of winning and making the playoffs were lost.

Either way, the Titans have looked like a much better team than the Jaguars this season. That hasn't stopped some experts from picking the Jaguars, however. Of SB Nation's panel of six experts, four are picking Tennessee -- Ryan Van Bibber, Joel Thorman, Jason Chilton and Stephen White. The two picking Jacksonville: David Fucillo and Matt Ufford.

Over at CBS Sports, they're also somewhat divided. Of the eight experts, five are going with the Titans to win, including Jason La Canfora and Josh Katzowitz. The other three are picking the Jaguars at home, including Pete Prisco and Will Brinson.
