2. The Jaguars will register two interceptions against the Titans.
Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill is coming off a rough stretch, completing 63 percent of his passes with two touchdowns and five interceptions. The Jaguars will capitalize on Tannehill’s struggles and will intercept him twice, one by cornerback Shaquill Griffin and the other by rookie Tyson Campbell.
The Jags secondary will welcome back Griffin, who has missed the last two weeks due to a concussion but is good to go Sunday. Meanwhile, Griffin has established himself as a key cog in the Jaguars secondary, allowing just a 55 percent completion rate since Week 10. The Jags must upgrade most position groups next offseason but at least they have two starting cornerbacks. Both of them will shine against Tennessee.
3. The Jaguars’ defense will allow less than 60 rushing yards.
Losing running back Derrick Henry for the season was a significant blow and there’s no way anyone could replace the impact he has on the Titan’s offense. Fortunately, they’ve found a solid one-two punch in D’Onta Foreman and Dontrell Hilliard. The duo nor anyone can make up for Henry’s absence but they’ve done a solid job running the ball.
Against the New England Patriots, Tennessee racked up 270 rushing yards, and the week before, they had 103. However, the Jags are going to tighten things up at the line of scrimmage and are going to put an end to their success running the ball and they’ll hold them to under 60 rushing yards.
