Tennessee Titans

The Jaguars’ victory Thursday night put more pressure on the Titans, who have lost four straight, He will “probably” be without Ryan Tannehill for the rest of the season It now holds just half a game lead in the AFC South standings ahead of Tennessee’s Week 16 game against North America Texas.

the Jaguar He won the first head-to-head encounter with the Titans. The second head-to-head—in Jacksonville in Week 18—is set up to be a winner-takes-all matchup as long as the Jaguars post a record that matches or better than the Titans over the next two weeks.

If the Titans went into Week 18 in a game before the Jaguars, a win for Jacksonville at the end of the regular season would set both teams’ records and give the Jaguars a head-to-head tiebreaker.

If the Jaguars go into Week 18 a game before the Titans, a Tennessee win would give the Titans a division based on a superior divisional record, as both teams would enter the regular season final 3-2 against the AFC South in this scenario. Like the Titans, the Jaguars have another game against Texas on their schedule.

Our model gives Tennessee a 46.3 percent chance of winning the AFC South for the third year in a row.
