The winless Jacksonville Jaguars have a halftime lead for the first time this season after a strong first half against the Tennessee Titans that ended with the visiting Jaguars leading 13-7.

For the Jaguars, the early lead was spurred by a strong defensive performance and three forced turnovers. The team recovered two fumbles from Titans running back Chris Johnson and rookie cornerback Dwayne Gratz hauled in an interception from Jake Locker.

Offensively, the Jaguars didn't do much after a six-yard touchdown from Maurice Jones-Drew put the team on the board early. Despite receiving solid field position multiple times thanks to the defense, the Jaguars offense settled for two field goals from Josh Scobee and Chad Henne finished the half with a 54.2 passer rating.

The Jaguars will be the recipients of the kickoff in the second half.
