With 2:36 left in the first half, the Jacksonville Jaguars responded when quarterback Trevor Lawrence completed a 25-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Christian Kirk. Shad Khan erupted in jubilant cheers after the touchdown. On Saturday, the Titans (7-9) played without cornerback Davontae Harris (hamstring), safety Mike Brown, and defensive tackle Naquan Jones.
The victor moves on to the postseason. In spite of a loss, the Jaguars might still have a shot at the postseason. If the Titans want to make the playoffs, they need to win.
