The Jacksonville Jaguars lost to the Atlanta Falcons 23-17 on Sunday, but they still have a chance to make the playoffs as the AFC South winner at 7-9.
It's simple: The Jaguars have to win out and so do the Tennessee Titans. Mike Mularkey and Gus Bradley need to win back-to-back games, which would be quite the feat to happen simultaneously.
JAX playoff hopes remain alive: • JAX must finish 2-0 (@ NO, @ HOU) • HOU must finish 0-2 (@ TEN, vs JAX) • IND must lose vs TEN in Wk 17— Tad Dickman (@Tdickman89) December 20, 2015
Personally, after yesterday's showing, I think the Titans have a better chance at winning out against the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts than the Jaguars do of winning out against the New Orleans Saints and Houston Texans. I just don't see this team winning another game.
So, now you know who to root for this week and next: the Jaguars and the Titans.
