Titans sputter, lose Mariota, fall to inspired Jaguars 38-17 (Dec 25, 2016)

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Tennessee Titans delivered their worst performance of the year at the most inopportune time.

The Jacksonville Jaguars played their best game much later than anyone expected.

The result was a 38-17 drubbing that left the Titans (8-7) and Jaguars (3-12) considering what might have been.

Blake Bortles played without pressure, able to exhale after popular coach Gus Bradley was fired, and threw for 325 yards and a touchdown. He also was on the receiving end of a 20-yard trick play that essentially sealed the victory and ended Jacksonville’s nine-game losing streak.

”Man, I’ve been telling Blake all week, `This is your team. Act like it,”’ left tackle Kelvin Beachum said. ”The more you keep saying that, the more people believe it and the more he believed it. He played lights out today. When he plays like that and we block like we blocked, the sky’s the limit for us. It’s a shame it’s taken this long to close a game out like we did. But it’s a great experience.”

The game was an awful experience for the Titans. Quarterback Marcus Mariota broke his right leg in the third quarter, ending his season, and they squandered one of the team’s most important games since 2008.

”That breaks my heart, man,” Tennessee offensive tackle Taylor Lewan
