Jacksonville Jaguars Form
The Jacksonville Jaguars are on a great run of form after making it four wins in a row by beating the Houston Texans 3-31 last week, leaving them 6-4 in their last 10 matches.
The Jacksonville Jaguars’ offense is pretty average compared to the other NFL offenses, having put up 24.0 points per game this season. On the other side of the ball, the defense has been nothing special. In its last five outings, opponents have scored 20.4 points against them per contest—a number that is squarely in line with the unit’s 20.9 points season average.
In 2021, the Jacksonville Jaguars went 3-14 to end up with a fourth-place finish in the AFC South. They subsequently didn’t make the playoffs and were expected to fail again this year. However, given their 8-8 record for this season, they are on course to make a surprise appearance in the NFL postseason.
Tennessee Titans Form
A 13-27 defeat to the Dallas Cowboys last week extended the losing streak of the Tennessee Titans to six matches. Their record for the last 10 games now stands at 3-7.
The Tennessee Titans offense has struggled to bring its A-game this season, putting up a mere 17.6 points on average. The defense has seen a sharp decline from the unit that ranked sixth in the league last year, having given up 21.2 points on average.
This is a make-or-break match for the Tennessee Titans. If last season’s AFC South champs snap out of their losing run to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars, they’ll make the playoffs – but only if they win this week.
