The Tennessee Titans bounced back and are once again in the AFC Wildcard race.
The Titans defeated the New York Jets last Sunday at home. The Titans held New York quarterback Josh McCown to only 124 passing yards, and they sacked him twice and intercepted him once.
On offense, the Titans are 16th in the NFL, averaging 117.5 rushing yards per game, but they will need quarterback Marcus Mariota to be more effective in the passing game against a very tough Jaguars defense.
Jacksonville has been one of the biggest disappointments this season, but last Sunday they came away with a 6-0 victory over the surging Indianapolis Colts at home.
Quarterback Cody Kessler went 18-for-24 with 150 passing yards, and the Jaguars' defense sacked Colts quarterback Andrew Luck three times and intercepted him once.
The Titans will have their work cut out for them in Week 14, especially if the Jaguars continue to perform like they did against the Colts a week ago.
In the first meeting with the Titans back in Week 3, Jacksonville held Tennessee to only 233 total yards of offense.
Jaguars vs Titans Spread
The Titans are giving the Jaguars 4 points in this matchup.
I like the Jaguars to cover the 4-point spread in this football game. Running back Leonard Fournette will return from his one-game suspension, and I fully believe the Jaguars will turn to their bellcow running back to carry the load offensively against the Titans.
Take the Jaguars and the points in this one.
Jaguars vs Titans Over/Under
The over/under in this football game is set at 37.5 total points.
My final score prediction is: Jacksonville Jaguars 23, Tennessee Titans 17.
Roll with the over in this football game.
Jaguars vs Titans Moneyline
If you're thinking about rolling with the Tennessee Titans, you'd have to put out $200 to win a $100 bet.
A $100 bet on the Jaguars would get you winnings of $170.
Because I think the Jaguars are going to win this football game, I really like the Jacksonville moneyline bet in this one.
Where the game will be won or lost
This football game is going to come down to defense and running the ball effectively.
And I believe the Jaguars have a better overall defense, and a better running game, which is why I think they will ultimately come away victorious.
Like I said above, Fournette is returning from his one-game suspension and because the Jags simply lack creativity on offense because of their average play at the quarterback position, they will most certainly rely on their LSU-product at the running back position.
I expect the Jaguars to run the ball with Fournette between 20-30 times in this game and I expect him to run for a few scores, and I also expect the Jaguars' defense to play as good as it did against the Colts, and I think they will come away with the win.
