Game one is in the books, and I am glad to say I was wrong. At first I had the Jaguars losing to the Titans, but they proved me wrong. With a stout run game and some good defense the Jags were able to pull off a 16-14 win in what is the start of the Luke McCown era.
The Jags outgained the Titans 323-292, with Jacksonville crushing the Titans in rush yards, 163-43, which is a bit of a surprise considering Chris Johnson played in the game for the Titans, but was limited to 24 yards rushing. The Titans did have the advantage in passing yards, 249-160, 80 yards of which for the Titans came on one pass from Matt Hasselbeck to Kenny Britt from over the middle for a touchdown.
The Jaguars did dominate time of possession 39:38 to 20:22, which is a huge key to winning games, can’t win if the offense can’t make plays. Both teams had 1 turnover each, Tennessee had an interception thrown and Jacksonville lost a fumble.
