After two weeks where the Jaguars managed to rewrite their usual script of letdowns, they performed in rare form tonight. In front of the largest home crowd since 2007, the team gave a performance that will be remembered amongst the worst of the Del Rio era.

It was a game that gave meaning to the phrase "everything that can go wrong, will go wrong." "Bad" David Garrard returned after a few games of teasing Jaguars fans. Marcedes Lewis went from All-Pro TE to looking like the stone handed player from 2008.The Jaguars offensive line was manhandled for most of the night by the Titans.

Even with Vince Young injured and Chris Johnson limited to a garbage time touchdown, the Titans still managed to score 30 points thanks to the Jaguars pass defense.

The Jaguars managed to get inside the Titans 10 yard line twice when the game was still in the balance. However, the team managed to only get 3 points. At that point, the game was lost.

Perhaps the worst thing of all is what this does for the team and the city. The fans turned out in droves, hoping for another great Jaguars win. Instead, the team rewarded them with their worst game since the 41-0 beatdown in Seattle. Beyond this game, it's going to be a tough sell to get the rest of the games on TV, and that's just a shame.
