Titans 33 Jaguars 30 quick recap

The Titans came out fast in this one. On the first play of the game Ryan Tannehill found a wide-open Jonnu Smith for a 63-yard gain. Two plays later Tannehill found Smith again for a 13-yard touchdown.

Kristian Fulton got his first career interception on the Jaguars ensuing drive. That set up a Tannehill touchdown pass to Corey Davis and 14-0 Titans lead.

Gardner Minshew came right back with a 6-play 75-yard touchdown drive that was capped off when he found Tyler Eifert in the end zone for a 19-yard touchdown to cut the lead to 14-7.

After trading punts the Titans put together a 13-play drive that included 8 Derrick Henry runs. It ended with Jonnu Smith’s second touchdown of the game – this time a 4-yard pass from Tannehill.

Jacksonville was able to get a field goal on their next drive, but in true Jags fashion they made the idiotic decision to attempt an onside kicks with 12 seconds left in the half. The Titans recovered. Tannehill then found Anthony Firkser for a 16-yard gain. Tennessee called a timeout and Stephen Gostkowski nailed a 51-yard field goal. That gave the Titans a 24-10 lead at the half.

The Titans defense really struggled in the second half. Minshew was able to do pretty much anything he wanted in the first three drives of the second half. The Titans need their injured defenders, Vic Beasley, Derrick Roberson and Adoree Jackson, back in a hurry.

The Titans did mix a touchdown drive in there that ended in a beautiful throw from Tannehill to Adam Humphries while Tannehill was taking a big hit.

The Titans were able to put together a nice drive that ended with a 49-yard field goal from Gostkowski.

The Jaguars got the ball back with 1:44 left but their hopes were ended when a Minshew pass was tipped and intercepted.
