How to watch
Need to find out how to watch, stream, or listen to today’s game? We got you covered here.
10:47 PM: The Jags fail to move the ball past midfield, and the Titans finally capitalize, as Mariota guides them downfield leading to a 6 yard Henry run for the first Tennessee score of the night, 17-7 Jags, early in the fourth quarter.
Side bar, Calais Campbell has 7 tackles with 3 sacks, setting a Jags franchise record for games with 3+ sacks in a career.
10:31 PM: The Titans drive ends with Josh Allen stripping and sacking Mariota.
10:18 PM: Another drive, another dime dropping from Minshew. This time he hits Chark for around 25 yards on a perfect sideline pass, then nearly has another touchdown and he dropped an absolute perfect pass into the arms of Dede Westbrook in the end zone, but it rolls of Dede’s arms incomplete. Jags convert the Lambo field goal attempt, and get three on their first possession of the second half. 17-0, Jags.
10:12 PM: The Titans get downfield on the opening drive of the second half, and go for it on 4th & 6 inside Jags territory...and The Mayor of Sacksonville comes up with a huge sack! Jags take over.
9:49 PM: Forgive the lack of info as the NFLN simulcast dropped signal for some time. To be honest, not much has happened as both teams exchanged punts before the Jags offense kneeled out the clock to end half number one. The defense has been as good if not better than last week, and Minshew has been efficient once again, being plagued from an even better night by blocks and penalties. Jags 14- Titans 0 at half time.
9:14 PM: Early in the second quarter and both teams have exchanged punts, with the Jags getting ready for their next possession. Minshew almost had Marqise Lee on a wide open touchdown...but Lee turned the other way and missed the pass. One injury report, All Pro receiver Chris Conley has left with an apparent ankle sprain.
9:00 PM: End of the first quarter. The Jags lead by 14, with the Titans facing a 3rd & 24 in Jags territory. Can’t ask for a better start.
8:50 PM: The Jags defense holds after the Titans get down field a bit on a 23 yard pass. Westbrook fields the punt inside their own 20. We’re moving towards the end of the first quarter.
Meanwhile, here is the absolute specimen of a touchdown pass from Minshew to Chark.

8:42 PM: The Jags defense, featuring Jalen Ramsey, force the Titans off the field. The Jags then proceed to dice the Titans defense with two absolute DIMES from Minshew to Dede Westbrook, and culminating in a Jaguars TOUCHDOWN on 3rd & 9, as Minshew finds D.J. Chark downfield for a 24 yard touchdown pass that was just phenomenal on Minshew’s part. Lambo extra point is good. 14-0, good guys! Minshew Mania has arrived.
8:29 PM: The play that led to the first Jags score of the evening. The first good bounce gone the Jags way all season,
8:26 PM: After the Jags get called for holding on the first play of the game, Minshew misses O’Shaughnessy high on 3rd & 1. However, the Titans muff the punt and Jags recover at the Titans 8...next play TOUCHDOWN from Minshew to the aformentioned tight end. 7-0 Jags. How bout that?
8:21 PM: Tenessee wins the toss and defers, it’s Minshew time.
8:15 PM: It hurts.

8:00 PM: We are 20 minutes from kick off, it’s pouring, and it’s likely Jalen Ramey’s last game as a Jaguar. So how are y’all? Anyway, here are the inactives tonight for the Jags as they enter the game actually as healthy as they’ve been in a few weeks.

5:01 PM: We have an early season nationally televised game and the headlines are Jalen, Jalen, and more Jalen. Here’s what we know:
Jalen Ramsey doesn’t anticipate being a member of the Jaguars next Sunday. That’s the Week 4 matchup away at the Denver Broncos. So, what’s Ramsey mad at? Well, reportedly it’s Tom Coughlin. And now owner Shad Khan has weighed in with his “it’s a team game” quote.
2:56 PM: Titan Up.
