The Jacksonville Jaguars will try to end the year on a high note when they head north to take on the Tennessee Titans.
The Jacksonville Jaguars will try to end the year on a high note when they take on the Tennessee Titans Sunday afternoon in an AFC South showdown. The Jaguars won the first meeting, 24-19, on Nov. 25. Chad Henne threw for 261 yards and two touchdowns in the victory, and Rashad Jennings added a rushing touchdown for the Jaguars.
At 2-13, it has been a disappointing first year for head coach Mike Mularkey. Not having running back Maurice Jones-Drew for most of the year has been a big issue and Jones-Drew will likely miss his tenth straight game Sunday with a foot injury. It was the worst year for MJD in a Jaguars uniform, after only rushing for 414 yards before being injured against the Oakland Raiders in Week 7. No matter the result of Sunday's game, the Jaguars will be guaranteed one of the top two picks in the 2013 NFL Draft and could end up with the No. 1 overall selection.
The Tennessee Titans have also had their struggles, and at 5-10 are possibly looking at a top-10 selection in the draft. Second year quarterback Jake Locker has struggled this year for the Titans, missing five games with a shoulder injury and not seeing the success other young quarterbacks have seen this year.
