Series History – Last season Tennessee and Jacksonville split their 2 games. During week 6 of the 2014 season the Titans hung on for a 16-14 home win. During week 16 of the 2014 season the Jaguars nailed down a 21-13 victory at home. The Titans and Jaguars play 1 more time this season: week 13 at Tennessee.

Prediction – This will be a battle of up and coming quarterbacks in Mariota and Bortles. In a year or 2 from now both of these teams may be dominating their division. As it stands now the Jaguars are only 1 game back of the Indianapolis Colts for 1st place in the AFC South. I think the Jaguars are a little further along offensively right now.
