That one felt really good.

A week after one of the most disappointing losses in recent memory, the Jacksonville Jaguars bounced back in a huge way with a commanding 34-14 win over the Tennessee Titans.

The win sets the Jags up as essentially a lock for the playoffs, and for a huge showdown for the AFC South crown next week.

Here are your winners and losers from a bounce back win.


Calvin Ridley

Everyone has been clamoring for it. And on Sunday, it all came together.

Ridley ended his day with a game-high 103 yards on seven catches and two touchdowns.

He looked every bit the part of a true number one receiver and quarterback Trevor Lawrence had a perfect passer rating when targeting Ridley.

Prior to Sunday, Ridley had two touchdowns all season.

The addition of Zay Jones back into the fold likely helped this connection a bit. But so be it.

The Titans had no answer for Ridley and the team got back to chucking the ball around to its best weapon. More of that please.

Trevor Lawrence

The entire offense played well against the Titans. Much of that had to do with the team’s single read quarterback.

Lawrence finished his day with 262 yards passing and two touchdowns. Importantly, he was only sacked once and did not turn the ball over a single time.

The QB also utilized his legs well, rushing for 17 yards and a pair of scores.

Akin to Ridley, the Titans really had to answer for what Lawrence was doing to them. The team punted twice the entire game and outgained their rivals by over 130 yards. The bounce back was needed and executed to perfection.

Special teams

Shoutout Ross Matiscik.

The long snapper recovered a fumble late in the game on the team’s second and final punt. It highlighted a day where the special teams unit was not oft used, but used extremely well.

Kicker Brandon McMannus has been about as automatic as it gets, and nailed two kicks to end the first half.

Both of punter Logan Cooke’s kicks downed the Titans deep, one of the 13 and the fumbled punt on the 21.

Legitimately every unit played well, but no one ever talks about special teams. Good for Matiscik and his group.


Arden Key

Have we not learned?

Just a few weeks after George Pickens talked a big game about the Jaguars’ defense, the former Jaguar Key took a shot at Lawrence and a potential lack of ability to go through progressions.

Nick Bosa said something similar last week, and Key echoed it prior to Sunday.

Key finished his day with three tackles, no sacks and no quarterback hits. Lawrence finished his day with the fourth highest passer rating of his career.

Hopefully someone on the Texans makes some bold claim this week.
