We’re counting down
to the 2020 NFL preseason opener what would have been the Jacksonville Jaguars preseason opener by ranking all 51 regular season wins over the past decade.
Today at No. 30? Beating the Tennessee Titans and having JALEN PARMELE as our leading rusher.
Week 12 — November 25th, 2012
After seven consecutive losses and five home blowouts, the Jaguars finally got its second victory of the season with a 24-19 win over the Tennessee Titans.
The last win for the Jaguars came in Week 2, but in Chad Henne’s first start with the Jaguars, he led the team to a victory. After throwing an interception on his first pass of the game, Henne recovered to finish the game with 17-of-26 passes completed for 261 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. His 108.0 quarterback rating was much better than the 64.3 that Jake Locker finished with.
Defensively, the Jaguars caused all sorts of problems for the Titans and kept the opposition out of the endzone for the first 55 minutes of the game. After the Titans scored late and threatened to score again, Locker threw an interception to Dwight Lowery that sealed the game for the Jaguars. One final heave from Locker was intercepted by Mike Harris.
Although the win isn’t going to propel the Jaguars into contention for anything, the team showed competence in several aspects of the game and it’s always nice to dish a crushing blow to the Titans.
Why the ranking at No. 30?
A middling win isn’t very impressive but JALEN PARMELE as our leading rusher in a win with Chad Henne making his very first start at quarterback is very Jaguars.
Staying tight with a terrible Cincinnati Bengals? That’s very Jaguars!
