As the Jacksonville Jaguars get ready to take on the Kansas City Chiefs Jalen Ramsey Jersey , let’s take a look back at how they got here.We’ll be grading the offense and defense separately through the week and up first — the offense!Alfie Crow (@AlfieBCC)The Jaguars offense has been an up and down affair and has been missing some pieces, but through the first four games of the season I think it’s been OK. The Titans always give the Jaguars offense fits, because they play a type of game that drags teams down into the mud and fights them. To beat that, you need consistency at quarterback and well... That’s just not Blake. Conversely, the Jaguars have had two games where their offense was just straight up electric. I think the truth is somewhere between the Jets game and the Giants game, but overall it’s been pretty solid and the offensive line, even with the injuries, has been fantastic.Grade: BRyan Day (@ryaneatscake)The offense runs through the quarterback no matter what the team tries to do in the run game. Leonard Fournette has missed a little more than three games of total playing time, leaving before halftime in Weeks 1 and 4 and missing the two games in between entirely. As Blake Bortles goes, so does this offense, which has looked good two weeks, meh one week, and awful another. That’s good enough to get to 3-1 but it’ll need some consistency as we go into the second quarter of the year. I’ve got them between a C+ and a B- and I’ll give them the edge because they beat Tom Brady and that was fun to watch.Grade: B-Jon Kirland (@BCBCouch)The offensive line has been solid and on pace to allow only 24 sacks this season. T.J. Yeldon has been better than expected, when healthy, in filling in for Leonard Fournette, the young receiver trio is coming along, and the unsung hero in my opinion has been Austin Seferian-Jenkins https://www.jaguarsfanstore.com/Leonard-Fournette-Jersey , who has become a younger Marcedes Lewis, somewhat unexpectedly. Bortles has really only had one awful game (Tennessee), one average at best game (Giants), and two jaw-dropping games (Patriots and Jets). In my opinion, two solid A games boost them up, but an F versus the Titans that may haunt them in December, drags them down here.Grade: C+Ryan O’Bleness (@ryanobleness)The offense has had two very strong games and two games that left a lot to be desired. The offensive explosions against the New York Jets and New England Patriots were a lot of fun to watch, and I think it makes it obvious that the success of the offense hinges on the play of Blake Bortles — especially with Leonard Fournette sidelined. T.J. Yeldon has stepped up and done an admiral job filling in for Fournette, but I still think the offense is much stronger with a fully healthy Fournette in the backfield. The problem is that the offense will remain as inconsistent as Bortles plays. That said, this team could be unstoppable if Bortles is able to put it all together throughout the season like he did this past Sunday. Grade: BBrian Fullford (@iambwf)I may be a bit more optimistic than my fellow writers. Two games at “A”, one at “F”, and one at “C” quality do not tell the whole story. Amidst injuries the offensive line has protected Blake and opened running lanes. The receiving corps has looked young but are making big plays. Leonard Fournette’s injury exploits a depth problem at running back, but T.J. Yeldon has stepped up as a multi-dimensional asset. Blake is Blake, and we’ll rise and fall on his confidence waves all season. Still, he’s climbing the pocket and making the throws with greater consistency earlier in the season than we have seen in the past.They key for me is the ability of the coaches to adapt to personnel and competition, and for the most part they have optimized what they have. They are letting Blake throw the ball more, which surely helps a Yeldon in the running game.All that said Keelan Cole Color Rush Jersey , the inability to beat the Titans is inexcusable and it’s only for my mercy that this isn’t a “C-”. On top of that, seven turnovers isn’t a confidence boost. This unit must string together some consistency.Grade: C+Filip Prus (@JaxonFil)The Jaguars offense has been hot and cold throughout the first four weeks of the season. On any given week, Blake Bortles has struggled to hit an open receiver from six yards out to surpassing a career high in passing yards to not being able. It may be a little unfair due to their franchise fulcrum Leonard Fournette not being available, but his absence has allowed Nathaniel Hackett to flourish for three out of the four games with out-of-the-box play calling and high percentage route running to manufacture the run game with screens and crossers. Statistically, they currently rank 15th in yards per game and are tied for the fifth-most giveaways with seven.Grade: C+ The Jacksonville Jaguars playing in prime time? It can’t be. Well it is true, on a Thursday, anyway, as the Jags get set to duel with the Tennessee Titans for the second time this season. There is no love lost between these two teams. There’s a reason why Jaguars fans identified the Titans as the team’s biggest rival in a landslide. We don’t like them. They don’t like us. And there is plenty of history between the two teams. So let’s go ahead and update the series history between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans/Houston Oilers.Series historyAll-time regular season series record: Titans lead 27-20Postseason Record: Titans lead 1-0 Last Jaguars win: Dec. 24, 2016 (38-17)Last Titans win: Sept. 23, 2018 (9-6)Current Streak: Titans with three-straight wins Biggest Jaguars win: 37-7 (Nov. 5, 2006)Biggest Titans win: 41-14 (Dec. 26, 1999)Interesting takeaway: The Jaguars are just 9-14 all-time as the away team in this series, including 7-14 in Nashville (2-0 in Houston). Jacksonville has lost the past four games on the road against the Titans.Quick thoughts: The first four matchups in series history actually placed the Jacksonville Jaguars against the Houston Oilers before the franchise relocated, and the two teams split with two wins each. Fast forward to the end of 2018, and it’s now been nearly two years since the Jaguars have topped their rival. The two teams split every season series from 2009 through 2016, but the Titans have won the past three matchups. Tennessee has an eight-game advantage overall, including a playoff win (you know Malik Jackson Jersey , because the Titans stole Jacksonville’s playbook). Last Matchup Winner: TitansScore: 9-6Date: Sept. 23, 2018Location: TIAA Bank Field, Jacksonville Team Stats: Jacksonville — 155 passing yards, 87 rushing yards, 12 first downsTennessee — 108 passing yards, 150 rushing yards, 15 first downsQuick recap: This game was ugly. It was battle of field goal kickers, and Ryan Succop got more opportunities, and hit three of four field goal attempts to get the better of Josh Lambo who went two-for-two. The Jaguars only generated six points, and lost despite a dazzling defensive effort — nine points allowed, 233 total yards allowed and three sacks. The Jaguars were without Leoanrd Fournette this game and only rushed for 87 yards and mustered 232 total yards. Former Jaguar Blaine Gabbert actually drew the start as Marcus Mariota was available, but still recovering from an injury, however Gabbert was knocked out the game and Mariota had to play. This was the first example of the offense letting the defense down in 2018, and a sign of things to come. Previous Matchup: Last Matchup Winner: TitansScore: 15-10Date: Dec. 31, 2017Location: Nissan Stadium, NashvilleTeam Stats: Jacksonville — 83 passing yards, 158 rushing yards https://www.jaguarsfanstore.com/Cam-Robinson-Jersey , 13 first downsTennessee — 116 passing yards, 134 rushing yards, 11 first downsQuick recap: The Jaguars had already clinched a playoff berth, while the Titans needed to win the last game of the season to assure a playoff spot. Neither team was really able to get much going offensively on an extremely cold night in Nashville. The only offensive touchdown of the game came in the second quarter when Marcus Mariota found Derrick Henry on a 66-yard screen pass. Yannick Ngakoue gave the Jaguars life with a 67-yard fumble return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter, but the Jags weren’t able to score the rest of the game. Jacksonville was minus-three in turnover margin. Series By Decade: 1990s: Series tied 5-5 in the regular season and Titans lead 1-0 in playoffs (1999-2000 season)2000-2010: Titans lead 13-9 2011-Present: Titans lead 9-6Quick thoughts: This has been a close series throughout. The Jaguars entered league competition in 1995, and the Jags and Titans/Oilers split the series with five games a piece in the 1990s. Tennessee dominated from 2000 to 2010, with 13 wins, including a five-game winning streak from 2001 to 2003. The Titans hold the slight advantage since 2011 (thanks to the 2017 season), but once again, sweeps have been rare in the past several seasons. So hopefully Jacksonville wins this week to avoid back-to-back sweeps while simultaneously making life harder for the Titans’ playoff bid. It’s been a disappointing season for the Jacksonville Jaguars. A win against the team’s biggest rival will mean a lot for this group. Expect another low-scoring, hard-hitting street fight between the two clubs. The Jaguars could very well beat this Tennessee team if the offense shows some semblance of life, as the defense should keep them in it. Meanwhile the Titans will come to play as they look to keep playoff hopes alive. So, will the Jaguars end the losing streak against the Titans? Let us know.
