Jaguars (4-8) at Ti­tans (6-6)

USA TODAY US Edition - - SPORTS - Crissy Froyd of TheTi­tan­sWire, a USA TO­DAY Sports Me­dia Group af­fil­i­ate

Time, TV: 8:20 p.m. ET Thurs­day, Fox and NFL line: Ti­tans by 4

Ti­tans’ keys: QB Mar­cus Mar­i­ota will need to make big plays. The of­fen­sive line will need to be much bet­ter than it has been the past two games, when it al­lowed him to be sacked 11 times. The de­fense has al­lowed 437 rush­ing yards the past two games and will need to tighten up. It also needs to se­cure turnovers be­cause this game will be close.

Jaguars’ keys: QB Cody Kessler started in place of Blake Bor­tles, and though he failed to get a touch­down, he picked up the first win of his ca­reer. He will need to avoid mis­takes again, and the of­fen­sive line will need to keep pres­sure off him. The Ti­tans strug­gle when the op­po­nent kills their mo­men­tum, so the Jaguars’ de­fense must make that a pri­or­ity.

Who wins? The Ti­tans have a slight edge and will play well in the di­vi­sional matchup at home. Ti­tans, 13-10
