In Week 16, the Green Bay Packers manhandled the Tennessee Titans in Lambeau, 55-7, while knocking their star player Chris Johnson out of the game with an ankle injury.Johnson returned in the third quarter but was clearly affected by the injury.  While Jacksonville isn't the playoff-caliber team that Green Bay is, the Jaguars haven't given up 100 yards to a rusher since Reggie Bush in a lopsided 24-3 game a few weeks back. Don't be surprised if CJ2K is stuck in neutral this week and the Titans' offense only gets 50 yards rushing while Jake Locker has to sling the ball to Kenny Britt to keep pace.Meanwhile, Chad Henne is auditioning for the starting quarterback position on a team that may bring in Tim Tebow as its starting quarterback next year. But Henne has a pair of receivers in Justin Blackmon and Cecil Shorts that this team hasn't had since the prolific a pair of Jimmy Smith and Keenan McCardell. Unfortunately Shorts was put on IR this week so look for Blackm...

Video: Chris Johnson's awkward touchdown celebration

On Sunday, Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson put his team on the board early on with a 2-yard touchdown scamper against visiting Jacksonville. What he did immediately following that is still left up to interpretation.The Titans would eventually roll over the hapless Jaguars 38-20 despite getting outgained 375 to 221 in total yards.

Tennessee Titans picks in 2013 NFL draft

With the regular season just concluded, the NFL has yet to officially determine the 2013 NFL draft order, but as far as I can tell the Tennessee Titans currently hold the following selections in the 2013 NFL entry draft: 1st round, 10th overall (own) 2nd round, 40th overall (own) 3rd round, 71st overall (own) 4th round, 104th overall (own) 5th round, 134th overall (own...

Jared Cook An Offseason Priority For The Titans?

Titans head coach Mike Munchak mentioned that re-signing TE Jared Cook will be one of their top priorities this offseason, per Terry McCormick. Cook underwent shoulder surgery after tearing his rotator cuff back in Week 13, which subsequently ended his season. Cook has plenty of potential to become a big-play threat for the Titans, but he has underachieved while in the team’s...

Titans Keeping Mike Munchak As Their Head Coach?

David Climer of The Nashville Tennessean writes that the Titans are unlikely to part ways with head coach Mike Munchak this offseason. “They’re going to keep him. Get used to it,” writes Climer. Climer adds that owner Bud Adams is unlikely to make another coaching change given his age. Munchak’s Titans suffered a terrible loss last weekend and the team looks to be in pretty...

On Jake Locker

So it has come to this. Late last season, I wrote a post on a Titans offense that was fundamentally nonfunctional. Three hundred seventy-six days later, the offense is once again fundamentally nonfunctional, for similar but not exactly the same reasons. For this post, though, I'll concentrate on one of the differences. In that post a year ago, I declared Matt Hasselbeck was neither...

Jaguars at Titans game preview

Game time: Sunday at 1 p.m. ET TV: CBS No matter what happens in Sunday's season finale at LP Field, the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars will finish with the worst records in the AFC South. There are still plenty of questions about what will happen this offseason for these struggling franchises. In their second season under Mike Munchak, the Titans (5-10) have missed...

Titans score four non-offensive TDs

Darius Reynaud and rookie linebacker Zach Brown gave the Tennessee Titans some NFL history to celebrate before wrapping up an ugly season. Tennessee became the first team in NFL history with two players scoring twice on returns in a game as the Titans beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 38-20 Sunday in their season finale. Reynaud scored on two punt returns and Brown returned two interceptions...

Titans win doesn't erase disappointing season

NASHVILLE -- A home win in the season finale for the Tennessee Titans might have taken some chill off the cold of the day. But the 38-20 victory over the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars here Sunday at LP Field did little to defrost a disappointing season that had long been placed on ice. The win notwithstanding, Titans fans in general and team owner Bud Adams in particular will carry...

Titans make history in dumping Jaguars

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Darius Reynaud and rookie linebacker Zach Brown gave the Tennessee Titans some NFL history to celebrate before wrapping up an ugly season.

Reynaud scored on two punt returns and Brown...

Titans score 28 points without running an offensive play

In case anyone knew, the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars played a NFL football game today. Not that anyone cares, because the two teams have proven to be disappointments this year; however, fans witnessed something you don’t see everyday as the Titans scored 28 points without running a single offensive play.

Jacksonville Jaguars verus Tennessee Titans points spread, line and betting odds

The Jacksonville Jaguars will go on the road to play the Tennessee Titans in Week 17. CBS will carry this game from LP Field in Nashville, TN. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 pm EST.

Jacksonville has not...

Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans: Week 17 NFL Pick

Jacksonville Jaguars (2-13) at Tennessee Titans (5-10) Aside from this being a divisional matchup, this is a completely meaningless game for these two teams. Both are out of the playoffs by a long shot. I have a rule against making significant plays on completely meaningless games. If the teams might not care about a game, I shouldn’t either. There’s just no way to predict what...

Jaguars-Titans preview thoughts, gameday thread

I didn't do Enemy Intelligence this week. Given the nature of Week 17 and two teams going absolutely nowhere, my only prediction is that if one team cares, it will win the game. If neither team cares or, somehow, some way, both teams care, the Titans are slightly better than the Jaguars and playing at home. The line of TEN -4 looks reasonable to me, but anything from a close...
