These three Titans could hand the Jaguars a loss in Week 5.

3. A.J. Brown, wide receiver

The Titans will be without Julio Jones but their offense won’t be devoid of weapons. Wide receiver A.J. Brown suffered a hamstring injury in Week 3 and didn’t suit up against the New York Jets in Week 4. He was a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice but had no restrictions in the last two days.

4. Ryan Tannehill, quarterback

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill has enjoyed a career revival since landing in Tennesse. He hasn’t been as efficient as last year but that could be due to having spotty protection. If the offensive line gives him enough time to throw the ball, the Jaguars’ secondary could be in for a long day. That’s why edge rusher Josh Allen and the rest of Jacksonville’s front seven must pressure him as often as possible and disrupt his rhythm.

5. Derrick Henry, running back

Running back Derrick Henry has had no trouble running over the Jacksonville Jaguars in the past. Last season, he ran for 299 yards against the Jaguars and averaged almost six yards per carry. The Titans will most likely feed him the ball early and try to wear down Jacksonville’s defense.

It’s unrealistic to expect the Jaguars to fully stop him but if they can hold him to less than 100 rushing yards, that would be a victory.
