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...

The line of TEN -4 looks reasonable to me, but anything from a close...
