The Tennessee Titans turned a division rivalry into a farce by beating the Jacksonville Jaguars on national television.
The Thursday Night Football game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans in 2015 was a shootout. The 2016 version was a blowout.
The Titans were up 27-0 at halftime in a game that wasn’t even competitive. Quarterback Marcus Mariota finished the night completing 78.3 percent of his passes (18 of 23) for 270 yards and two touchdowns.
The Jaguars didn’t manage to look competitive in this one. Head coach Gus Bradley’s team looked like they were sending a message in which the offense and defense both completely imploded. It’s tough to imagine Bradley survives this one.
The Jags look completely lost. The impressive wide receivers were dropping balls, the defense was struggling against both the run and the pass, and the team lacked disciplined yet again. Bradley is the worst head coach in modern NFL history.
Owner Shad Khan was a part of team meetings this week and the speculation is that his patience is at an end.

But the true problem for the Jaguars in this game was the typical complete meltdown. It was another game when the team didn’t manage to score points in the first half. It was another game when the offense wasn’t able to generate enough yards to keep pace. It was another game in which the team’s best players didn’t perform up to their talent.
It’s tough to see the Jags sink so low, especially on national television. Yet it’s tough to avoid the awkwardness for the Jaguars at this point. There needs to be a change as the division rivalry game looked much less like a rivalry and much more like a mockery.
Time for the Jacksonville Jaguars to rebuild, yet again.
Final score 36-22.
