2011 NFL Picks, Week 16: Jaguars Vs. Titans

The Jacksonville Jaguars only have two games left in a season that has been a disappointment. But there is still time to play spoiler for the Titans. Here's a game pick from Emmanuel Pepis at NOLA.com.

Last week was humiliating for a Titans squad that is in the chase for a wild card spot. They gave Indianapolis their first win because they couldn't get defensive stops late after being hurt by a slow start. Now they face Jacksonville who looks dead in the water. Their offensive line has all kind of issues that were uncovered again in the loss to Atlanta. The Jaguars have scored more than 20 points only once in the last nine games.

TENNESSEE-20 JACKSONVILLE-13

This seems like a pretty solid pick here. The Titans are favored to win by 8.5 points, which seems like a lot. They are a good team, but I don't think the Jaguars should worry about getting blown out with the way they've been playing defense. If they can just put a couple touchdowns on the board, they'll have a goo chance to beat the spread.
