5 questions with Music City Miracles: "Marcus Mariota is better than Blake Bortles"

We talked with Jimmy Morris of Music City Miracles to discuss the Jaguars vs. Titans game and how these teams match up.

1. The Tennessee Titans are favored to win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. What do the Titans do better?

Their quarterback is better. (Figured I would hit that again since it was so popular at Big Cat Country last time.)

Anyway, the Titans are better at rushing the passer. Hopefully they can get pressure on Blake Bortles and force a turnover or two.

2. Having seen the Titans play the Jaguars just two weeks ago, what did you see as a possible weakness the Jaguars had that the Titans can exploit?

Pretty much just what I said above. These teams are pretty evenly matched. The Titans didn't have Kendall Wright in the first meeting, so that should help, but the game is probably going to come down to a key turnover. I like the Titans ability to force Bortles into a bad throw.

3. Will Mike Mularkey win a game this season?

If he is going to win one, it is probably going to have to be this one. I have zero confidence in this team's ability to get a win, but this is the best chance they have left.

4. How does the Titans defense look different if Derrick Morgan can't play?

The pass rush isn't as good. Morgan has been a really underrated player for a couple of years now. He made a really easy transition from 4-3 DE to 3-4 OLB. They will miss him if he isn't out there.

5. What's your prediction for Sunday?

I think this matchup turns into a shootout with the Jaguars winning 30-27.
