What the Jaguars did in Week 1 was impressive, but these Titans look like they are capable of running all over Jacksonville’s decimated defense, but a ten-point win might be a big ask this early in the season.

Well, hello, Gardner Minshew, Jacksonville’s gutsy and talented young quarterback who led his Jaguars to an upset win in Week 1 against a Colts team that every expert expected to win, so it changes how this Jaguars team’s potential looks.
For the Tennessee Titans, it was a fine game for QB Ryan Tannehill in Week 1 against the Broncos, their victory coming off of his two touchdown passes, and of course, the impressive running done by last year’s rushing leader Derrick Henry.
These two AFC South rivals have met up 51 total times (including 1 postseason game), with the Titans winning 30 of those games and the Jaguars winning 21.
All we read about in the offseason was how the Jacksonville front office was stripping down their team, “purging” itself of any financial dead weight and moving forward with a younger (read ‘cheaper’) group of football players.
Some big names now gone from the Jaguars roster are Leonard Fournette, Yannick Ngakoue, and Calais Campbell this most recent offseason as well as cornerback Jalen Ramsey the season before.
Yet somehow without those big-name playmakers this team still found a way to beat Philp Rivers and his new team, the Colts, in Week 1, so there may be something to this stripped-down team despite their lack of household names.
Tannehill was the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year in 2019 for good reason – he went from being an also-ran QB fired by the Dolphins to be a Pro Bowl passer for the Titans who took his team all the way to the AFC Championship game last year.
The Titans can run, for sure, Derrick Henry was the league’s best in that category last season, but take a look at Tannehill’s numbers in Week 1 and it becomes obvious the Titans plan on having a two-headed attack this year.
Against the Broncos on Monday Night Football last week, Tannehill completed 29-of-43 passes for 249 total yards and 2 touchdowns with zero interceptions while running 3 times for another 14 yards, stats that the Jaguars’ defensive coordinator Jay Gruden will have to take into serious consideration while game planning for this one.
Time for Keelan Cole to step up and become QB Gardner Minshew’s favorite target, and that’s exactly what happened in Week 1 in the team’s win against the Colts.
Cole posted a team-high 5 receptions for 47 yards and a touchdown, averaging 9.4 yards per catch, a production that is helping his QB “Gardener” become a household name.
Cole’s best season was his rookie campaign in 2017 when he caught 42 passes for 748 yards and 3 touchdowns, but the two years since have been a bit lighter, so it will be good to see him regain his initial pro momentum with Minshew as his guide.
In one play during the Titans Week 1 win over the Broncos, Tennessee wide receiver Corey Davis basically manhandles a Broncos defender, throwing him to the ground like a discarded cape, setting the tone for how that game would proceed.
Davis posted a team-leading 7 receptions for 101 yards but no touchdowns, averaging 14.4 yards per catch and setting himself up as the go-to man for his QB Ryan Tannehill to depend on.
This will be Davis’ fourth NFL season, all with the Titans, and if he can stay healthy enough to play every week, expect the 6’ 3”, 209-pound receiver to be a difference-maker as the regular season progresses towards the inevitable playoffs.
