The Tennessee Titans traveled to Jacksonville this week hoping to keep there perfect record against the 4-5 Jaguars. The Titans easily defeated the Jags earlier in the season, but this game turned out to be more of a challenge than Tennessee expected.
Tennessee started the game with a beautiful 47 yard pass from Kerry Collins to Justin Gage. Two plays later, Collins attempted the exact same throw, but this time it ended the drive in an interception. Although the Titans stopped the Jaguars and scored a field goal on the next drive, things began to fall apart.
Jacksonville?s defense and offensive game really stepped up and gave the Titans a tough time. The Titans offense could barely gain any yards while their defense allowed tons of yards. Jacksonville prevented the Titans from scoring for 4 consecutive drives. Their offense held the majority of the field position in the first half and Maurice Jones-Drew ran it in for 2 touchdowns. The score going into the half was 14-3.
If the first half was the story of the Jaguar?s incredible play, then the second half was about the Titan?s huge comeback. In 7 minutes the Titans went from losing the game to winning. Kerry Collins made some awesome throws. One of these was a 13 yard TD pass to Brandon Jones and another was a 56 yard TD pass to Justin Gage.
The Titans defense looked in prime form in the second half when they didn?t allow the Jags to score at all. The Titans stopped the Jags on 8 drives in a row. Chris Carr intercepted the ball which led to the Titans sealing the game with a TD in three more plays. This was Collins third TD pass of the game.
The Titans won 10-0 while Jacksonville drops to 4-6. Kerry Collins was once again the big player for Tennessee going 13/23 for 230 yards. He had 3 TD?s (as mentioned above) and only 1 interception. Collins may have entered his name into MVP contention after his performance. The Titans are playing the Jets next week in what should be another great game.
