Jacksonville (4-8) at Tennessee (6-6), 8:20 p.m. on FOX, NFL Network and Amazon. In the next to last Thursday night game of the 2018 NFL season, a pair of AFC South rivals, both chasing Houston for the top spot in the division, meet in the Music City in a rematch from week three. Jacksonville and Tennessee both picked up huge home wins in last week’s action.

While Jacksonville was without RB Leonard Fournette, who sat out his one-game suspension for a fight in Buffalo, they got a pair of Josh Lambo field goals to shutout Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts 6-0 at TIAA Bank Field last Sunday. After a scoreless first quarter, Lambo’s 30-yard field goal would give the Jaguars a 3-0 lead with 2:03 left before the half to open the scoring in the contest. Jacksonville would then take that lead with them to the break and the contest stayed that way through the third quarter. Lambo would then connect again, this time from 37 yards out for the 6-0 lead. Jacksonville then proceeded to end a Colts threat that would have given Luck the lead late in the contest, as the Jaguars would wind up breaking their seven-game losing streak in the process.

Neither club broke the 100-yard rushing barrier but Jacksonville did win that battle, outrushing the Colts 79-41. Luck did manage to throw for 248 yards but threw an interception, while Cody Kessler threw for 150 yards and no interceptions (both Keesler and Luck were sacked three times).

Tennessee also picked up a close home winning, slipping by the New York Jets 26-22 at Nissan Stadium. Marcus Mariota and the Titans trailed 16-6 at the half, then rallied in the final 30 minutes of action, outscoring GangGreen 20-6, chipping away at the New York lead with a pair of Ryan Succop field goals, then taking the lead for keeps with 36 seconds left when WR Corey Davis caught an 11-yard TD pass from Mariota for their first lead of the day. Tennessee then held off a late J-E-T-S! JETS! JETS! JETS! rall to take the win in the late afternoon contest. GangGreen outrushed the Titans 156-130 with Jets RB Isaiah Crowell leading the way with 98 yards. Mariota threw for 282 yards and a pair of TDs (including the game-winner), while Josh McCown threw for 128 yards (McCown was sacked twice, Mariota sacked three times; both men threw an interception) for New York. The Titans were a somewhat dismal 1 for 11 on third down and kept the ball for 26:38, while the J-E-T-S! JETS! JETS! JETS! actually ruled the clock, keeping the ball for 33:22, going 3 for 14 on third down conversions.

They met in the Sunshine State in week three and the Titans were 9-6 winners in that contest. Jacksonville saw their hopes of an unbeaten season come to an end at TIAA Bank Field. Going into the intermission tied at 3-3, thanks to field goals from Jacksonville’s Josh Lambo and Tennessee’s Ryan Succop. The two men would late exchange field goal to tie things back up at 6-6 before Succop would give the Titans the lead back for good with a 28-yard field goal with 4:09 left in regulation. Tennessee outrushed Jacksonville 150-87 and Marcus Mariota threw for 100 yards in the win, while Jacksonville’s Blake Bortles threw for 155 yards with three sacks (Mariota was sacked once and neither man threw an interception). Jacksonville was 5 of 14 on third down tries (they were 0 for 1 on fourth down) and kept the ball for 27:13, while the Titens ruled the clock and kept the ball for 32:47, going 5 of 15 on third down tries.

Although Jacksonville was a 9-point favorite in the week three contest in the Sunshine State, the Titans took the win and won by 3, which meant that the spread was not covered and the 40 over/under was safe and sound as the two teams combined for a mere 15 points. The Titans are favored by 4 in on Thursday night and the over/under’s 37 1/2. Tennessee’s fighting for a playoff spot, while the Jaguars would like nothing more than getting revenge on their AFC South foes and spoiling their party in the process. Jaguars cover in the Music City and crash Tennessee’s party on Thursday night.
