Your Jacksonville Jaguars are AFC South champions!
Doug Pederson led Jacksonville to a 20-16 win over the Tennessee Titans on Saturday night. In his first season as head coach, the Jaguars secured a winning record, division crown, and postseason appearance for just the second time since 2007.
Though Pederson deserves a ton of credit for his coaching this season, it was Jacksonville’s defense that got the job done in the regular season finale. The Titans led late in the game before Rayshawn Jenkins strip-sacked Josh Dobbs to send the Jaguars to the playoffs.
It was the biggest play of the game in terms of both expected points added (-7.5) and win probability added (47%), per rbsdm.com.
Jenkins broke down his sack against Tennessee after the game.

Talked a bit about the defensive TD that sent the Jags to the playoffs. The blitz itself was cool and it showed a pretty good knowledge of Tennessee’s protection schemes pic.twitter.com/nZiTs7cpmr— JP Acosta (@acosta32_jp) January 9, 2023
