Tennessee’s defensive game plan was to stack the box to stop Leonard Fournette and Chris Ivory and force Bortles to beat them by making him throw.

10 observations from Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Tennessee Titans game - FirstCoastNews.com
The Jaguars were hit with a bit of their own Week 1 medicine during Sunday's 37-16 loss to the Tennessee Titans at EverBank Field.

Following a very close first half, the game got away from the hometown team in the third quarter due to some self-inflicted wounds.

The Jaguars allowed 31 points in the final two quarters. It was a clear shift from the 29-7 victory over the Houston Texans last week.
