Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville Jaguars: Preview and Pick

The Tennessee Titans and the Jacksonville Jaguars are two teams that are not going to be involved in the post season. While the teams and their front offices may be more focused on the upcoming NFL draft, the game will still be played on the field. These teams may not have a future this year, but they are still giving it their all on the field and that could result in a very competitive game this weekend.

Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville Jaguars Preview

The NFL odds for this game opened up with the Jaguars listed as (-5.5) point favorites. This point spread may seem surprising considering how poorly that the Jaguars have played this season, but it could be a strong indication that the Titans have given up on the season. The betting public believes Tennessee is done as over 80 percent of the early betting action is coming in on the home team in this game.

The Jags will blitz early and often against the Titans. Ryan Fitzpatrick finished 15-of-21 for 184 yards, three touchdowns and an interception when the Cardinals blitzed on Sunday. If the Jags can put on the pressure it could be a big win for the home team this Sunday.
