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.
Tennessee will miss the playoffs for the fourth consecutive season and while the team has said they intend to bring Chris Johnson back the status of head coach Mike Munchak is unknown. Jacksonville has not fared any better with Chad Henne at quarterback then they did with Blaine Gabbert. Nearly everyone seems to think that they will be the eventual landing spot of Tim Tebow.
What is the points spread in the Jaguars and Titans game? The Titans are 4 point favorites against the Jaguars. The over/under for this game is 42 total points.
Avg Points Allowed
The Titans have not played well for the bulk of their season. Last week the were shellacked 55-7 by Green Bay. In that game quarterback Jake Locker was sacked a season high seven times while throwing two interceptions. The Titans finish the season 0-8 against teams with winning records, something they will not have to contend with this week.
Jacksonville has the second worst run defense in the NFL. They will look to stop Johnson in the same fashion that green bay did. (28 yards on 11 carries)
Cecil Shorts and Maurice Jones Drew will both miss the Jaguars season finale.

MJD has spent the bulk of the season watching his team from the sidelines after a nasty labor dispute cost him both his training camp and pre-season.
The question now becomes ‘ is it time for both parties to part ways?’

Now a member of the Jaguars, defensive end Jason Babin ripped his former team, referring to the Eagles organization as "kind of a big socialistic system."
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew had surgery on his left foot Friday. The Jaguars best offensive player has been out since October 21 when he sustained the injury in Oakland.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed running back Maurice Jones-Drew on injured reserve because of a foot injury.
The Jaguars (2-13) waited nearly two months before ending Jones-Drew's season, holding out hope that the league's leading rusher in 2011 would get healthy.
He injured his left foot Oct. 21 at Oakland when he was tackled on the opening...

#Jaguars place RB Maurice Jones-Drew on IR so he’ll finish by missing last 10 games.

After holding out prior to the regular season, Jones-Drew had a disappointing injury-plagued season in 2012:

Patrick Chung was not fined for his hit that drew an unnecessary roughness penalty against the Jaguars.— Jeff Howe (@jeffphowe) December 28, 2012This was a topic of much debate this week, with many fans expecting Chung to be getting a fine.I'm not really sure I agree with that, and probably side more with the league office. It was a hit to the head but did not seem malicious...
The Jacksonville Jaguars announced that RB Maurice Jones-Drew will undergo surgery on his foot Friday and is expected to be out until May.
It’s certainly puzzling to see the Jaguars hold off on placing him on the injured reserve list and wait for him to undergo surgery. They could have made this move months ago and insured that Jones-Drew would have been better prepared for...
Thanks again to Shane Clemons, who runs the fine Jacksonville Jaguars blog, The Jaggernaut. Shane joins us this week to give us a Jaguars viewpoint in this week's question and answer exchange.

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 star running back Maurice Jones Drew, who has already missed most of this season with a foot injury, will now be out of action until at least May after he had another surgery on his left foot. This is just another blow to an already miserable season for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Even with a recent report that Jets quarterback Tim Tebow could end up with the Jacksonville Jaguars next season, Arthur Arkush of ProFootballWeekly.com says it’s probably a stretch to believe that he’ll be a Jaguar in 2013.
After doing a little digging, we hear that categorizing his arrival in Jacksonville after the season as imminent is a major stretch.

The Jacksonville Jaguars placed running back Maurice Jones-Drew on injured reserve and signed rookie defensive tackle Jerome Long from Kansas City's practice squad on Friday.

Well, it’s the end of the year and I have to ask…you’re still here? It’s over, go home. Week 16 is when championships are decided, not week 17. Have you no shame?
