Jaguars at Titans final score 29-27: Titans gift Jaguars their first win


The Jacksonville Jaguars came into the game against the Tennessee Titans looking for their first win of the season. They looked determined to get it to from the first drive. On the first offensive play from scrimmage, Chris Johnson fumbled and it was recovered by Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny. That gave them the ball on the 19-yard line.

Maurice Jones-Drew carried the ball on three straight plays to take the ball into the end zone for the touchdown and early lead. The Jaguars added on a pair of field goals, one in the first quarter and one at the start of the second quarter. That gave them a 13-0 lead.

Titans quarterback Jake Locker went  down with a injury and Ryan Fitzpatrick entered the game. He threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Taylor Thompson with 46 seconds left in the half. That narrowed the lead to 13-7.

After halftime, the Jaguars picked up right where they left off. They marched down the field on 8 plays and 79 yards to get a touchdown to take a 20-7 lead.

The Titans added two field goals to get within seven points in the fourth quarter and set up an interesting finish to the game. Titans guard Chance Warmack got called for holding in the Titans own end zone giving the Jaguars a safety, and a 22-13 lead. 3 minutes later, Fitzpatrick leads the Titans down the field and scores on a four-yard touchdown run to get within two points of the Jaguars.

The Titans looked like they could complete the come back, but they were determined to help the Jaguars get their first win. Fitzpatrick was sacked and fumbled. Will Blackmon recovered the fumble and returned it 21 yards for a touchdown to extend the lead to 29-20 and make it a two possession game.

Despite the Titans miscues, they kept pulling back. The Titans scored on a 14-yard touchdown pass to Delanie Walker, that pulled them within two points again and set up the on-side kick. The Jaguars recovered the kick and ran out the clock to win the game.

The Jaguars played well, but not their best game. Had the Titans not given the Jaguars those 9 points in the fourth quarter, they would’ve won the game.
