The Jaguars stopped the opening possession of the half from the Titans and struck quickly, as Chad Henne found Cecil Shorts III for a 59-yard touchdown pass. The touchdown was a franchise-record fourth 50+ yard reception for Shorts and made him the seventh player in franchise history to catch six touchdown passes in a single season (Marcedes Lewis, Reggie Williams, Jimmy Smith, Ernest Wilford, Mike Sims-Walker, Keenan McCardell).
On the following possession, the Titans again crossed into Jaguars territory and threatened to score, but were unable to find the end zone. The team instead settled for a third field goal from Rob Bironas to cut the Jaguars lead to five.
Aaron Ross is questionable to return with dehydration listed as his injury.
