If the Jacksonville Jaguars want to avoid becoming the third team in NFL history to lose 20 consecutive games, they will need to beat the Tennessee Titans in Week 5. Although they’re trailing, they’re trying their best to keep up.

Tight end Jacob Hollister scored on a one-yard pass by quarterback Trevor Lawrence in the Jaguars’ fourth possession of the game. This is Hollister’s first touchdown of the year and his first one as a member of the Jaguars. He signed with the team after being released by the Buffalo Bills right before the 2021 regular season started. Up until this game, he had been a non-factor. In fact, he made headlines for the wrong reasons.

Back in Week 3, Hollister had a costly drop that became an interception. The Wyoming product was inactive for the first two games of the season. In the last two weeks, he hauled in three receptions for 20 yards.

This has been an entertaining game so far (even if the Jags’ are losing). Tight end Dan Arnold fumbled the ball in the Jaguars’ first possession. Titans safety Kevin Byard scooped it and took it back for a defensive touchdown. Jacksonville then put together a 5-play, 75-yard drive that ended on a score by running back James Robinson. The Titans then answered back with a rushing touchdown of their own. Here’s Hollister touchdown in case you missed it or want to watch it again.

The Jacksonville Jaguars need to keep up with the Titans.

Right after Hollister’s touchdown, the Titans put together a 75-yard that ended on a 14-yard passing touchdown from quarterback Ryan Tannehill to wide receiver MyCole Pruitt. Kicker Matthew Wright missed a 53-yard field goal attempt. Also, the Jags had one last chance to score before the end of the second quarter but couldn’t do much.

Heading into halftime, the Jaguars are trailing 24-13. The game isn’t out of reach yet and there’s still plenty of time to tie the game. However, both the Jaguars’ offense and defense need to step up.
