Jaguars (4-8) at Titans (6-6)
Time, TV: 8:20 p.m. ET Thursday, Fox and NFL Pregame.com 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
