Jaguars fans expose cold take ahead game vs. Titans in Week 18
It’s common for NFL fans to take friendly shots at fans from opposing teams, especially if they play in the same division. Fans of the Jacksonville Jaguars are no different and dug up a cold take from early in the season ahead of their “winner-takes-all‘ matchup against the Tennessee Titans in Week 18.
Music City Miracle is an outlet that covers the Tennessee Titans and they made fun of the Jags for having a losing record before these two division foes played each other in Week 14, “I can’t hear anyone who is a fan of a team under .500“. At the time, Tennessee was 7-6 while the Jaguars were 5-8, so it was a pretty witty jab. However, Jacksonville is now 8-8 while the Titans are 7-9.
Whoever wins will win the AFC South title and advance to the postseason but the Jags are a 6.5-point favorite and the game will be held at TIAA Bank, so their fans will try to make it as loud as possible. Also, they’ll remind everyone about the now-outdated take from Music City Miracles.
The Jaguars should have no trouble disposing of the Titans in the finale
The Jaguars are one of the hottest teams in the league, going 6-2 since Week 9. Looking back, nobody would have blamed you if you thought they were done for the season following their loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. This writer thought so and so did Pete Prisco of CBS Sports. But as cliche, as it may sound, they never stopped believing in themselves and refused to give up.
Now, Jacksonville is one step away from making the playoffs and winning the AFC South. What makes this turnaround so impressive is that it doesn’t feel like a fluke. They’ve won some close games and also beaten teams by wide margins. Similarly, they’re playing complementary football, something they struggled to do early in the season.
Expect TIAA Bank Field to be loud on Saturday. Also, don’t be surprised if you see many “I can’t hear anyone who is a fan of a team under .500” on the broadcast.
