Jaguars vs. Titans final score: Jacksonville loses in embarrassing fashion in Tennessee

You know, embarrassing might not even be strong enough a word for it.

Pathetic doesn't even describe the effort the Jacksonville Jaguars gave tonight.

The game started off slow, with the Titans going three and out, and the Jaguars only getting a first down on their first drive before stalling. The Titans were the first to get on the board, driving down the field on a 10 play, 54 yard drive capped by a 32 yard field goal by Ryan Succop.

The Jaguars then continued the offensive success they have had all season, by going three and out on the ensuing drive. The Titans then started their punishment on the Jaguars, with a 22 yard Demarco Murray run followed by a 36 yard touchdown pass from Mariota to Kendall Wright, giving them a 10-0 lead.

With their backs against the wall, the Jaguars continued to stumble, going three and out once again.

The Titans continued their dominance on the next drive, driving down the field in 8 plays, extending their lead to 17-0 with a 6-yard Derrick Henry run.

How did the Jaguars respond? If you choose a three and out, you got it right!

The Jaguars downfall continued on the next possession, with a interference with opportunity to catch penalty, and a play where they literally almost let Phillip Supernaw run in the end-zone untouched. He ended up stepping out of bounds at the 15 yard line, though it would prove to mean nothing, as the next play the Jaguars gave up a 15 yard cutback run to Demarco Murray, extending the Titans lead to 24-0.

The Jaguars finally got a first down on the following drive, but squandered an opportunity to score as Bortles was sacked, putting them out of field position and forcing them to punt.

With the Titans pinned back at their own 3 at one point in the drive, the Jaguars hoped to finally get a stop. Unfortunately, the Jaguars gave up a 19 yard run by Murray on 3rd and 13, completely deflating their defense. The Titans then proceeded to push the ball down the field, getting 4 yards away from a touchdown, but settling for a field goal to end the half 27-0.

After an awful performance in the first half, the Jaguars finally got something going on offense with a 11-play, 75-yard drive capped off with a Bortles touchdown pass to Julius Thomas to cut the lead to 27-8.

The Titans offense responded how it did all game, driving down the field in 7 plays, which was highlighted by a 41 yard Delanie Walker catch. Mariota threw a 4-yard crossing route to Rishard Matthews to extend their lead to 33-8.

After both teams went three and out, the Jaguars finally got the Titans to punt. But the Jaguars went full Jaguars, as Marqise Lee muffed the punt return, as the Titans recovered.

The Titans took advantage of the turnover, kicking a 33 yard field goal to extend the lead to 36-8. Trying to salvage something, the Jaguars drove down the field on the Titans, but came up empty as they failed to convert on a 4th-and-4 at the Titans 16.

Late in the fourth quarter, the Jaguars scored a garbage time touchdown on 5-yard pass from Bortles to Allen Hurns. This cut the lead to 36-15... and then another garbage time touchdown to Bryan Walters brings the score to what we see at the end of regulation.
