In Week 10, the Jaguars found themselves on the wrong end of a blowout. However, in Week 11, they were able to turn things around and defeat the Titans with a final score of 34-14. The win moved the Jags to a record of 7-3 on the year and kept them atop the AFC South heading into next week’s road game in Houston. The team is hoping that this win is the start of a similar run to the one they had in mid-November last year, when they won six out of their last seven games to win the division.
Quarterback Trevor Lawrence was instrumental in their victory, running for two touchdowns and throwing for two more. He hit Calvin Ridley with both of his touchdown passes and went 24-of-32 for 262 yards through the air before giving way to C.J. Beathard at the end of the fourth quarter. Ridley had an impressive day with seven catches for 103 yards and an 18-yard run, which was his most productive day in more than a month.
The Titans were once leading the AFC South but have now gone 3-14 in their last seven games. Next week offers a chance to get back on track with the Panthers coming to town next weekend. However, Sunday’s effort featured several turnovers and only picked up 12 first downs over the course of the afternoon. Seven penalties also helped keep several drives alive, but overall sloppiness is unlikely to put a smile on head coach Mike Vrabel’s face when he reviews the film from Sunday afternoon. Despite this setback, Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson will be feeling optimistic moving into Week 12 thanks to his franchise quarterback’s big day
