Jaguars vs. Titans 2012: A 'fitting finale' for Jacksonville

The Jaguars suffered an embarrassing defeat at the hands of the Titans to close out the season, which was absolutely fitting considering how the year played out.

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars wrapped up a miserable 2012 season with a 38-20 loss to the Tennessee Titans, finishing the year at 2-14, the worst in franchise history. In the game, the Titans managed to score 28 straight points without their offense taking the field.

Jaguars fans are just relieved that the season is over, and Adam Stites of SB Nation's Jaguars blog Big Cat Country says the embarrassing loss was the perfect way to end this dreadful campaign:

It was a fitting and just finale for a team that was bad on many levels throughout the 2012 season, but particularly bad in the loss was the play of quarterback Chad Henne. After starting strong with two touchdown passes to Jordan Shipley and Justin Blackmon, he threw three interceptions, including two that were returned for touchdowns by Zach Brown.

Jacksonville and owner Shahid Khan are already moving forward, as general manager Gene Smith has been fired. Whomever takes over the job will have a big decision to make right off the bat, because the Jaguars' woeful season has them picking second in the 2013 NFL Draft. While there are certainly a lot of holes to fill on the roster, hitting on that draft pick is almost a must to get the team back on the right track after this season's disaster.
