Tennessee was able to get consistent pressure, but struggles with making tackles on first contact allowed Jacksonville to pile up 24 points on the day.
While there were signs of life throughout the game from the linebackers and the defensive line, poor safety play once again highlighted struggles in the secondary.
The Titans have shown more aggressiveness defensively over its last two games after allowing points at a record-setting pace in its first nine contests, but consistently getting off the field on third downs continues to be an issue.
Final Game Grade: B
The Titans defense, despite allowing a long touchdown, has continued to keep the Titans in the game with relentless pressure on Chad Henne.
Though there have been a few examples of shoddy tackling, overall, the defense is doing enough to put Tennessee in position to come away with a win.
The Titans pass rush has been relentless in the first half as the Tennessee defensive line has swarmed Chad Henne throughout the day.
Jacksonville has been able to move the ball pretty effectively, but only has a touchdown to show for it through one half of play.
Tennessee's secondary needs to play more aggressively and force Chad Henne to make difficult throws when Jacksonville attacks down field.
Halftime Grade: B-
Despite sacking Chad Henne three times and tallying an interception on the first play of the game, the Titans allowed a touchdown and 118 yards in the first quarter.
The Titans secondary has played off their men and have given Jaguars receivers too much separation in the early going and will need to become more aggressive if they hope to slow down the Henne-led attack.
The Titans defense, coming off its most impressive performance of the season against Miami prior to its bye, will look to continue building momentum against a Jaguars offense featuring a new starting quarterback in Chad Henne.
Jacksonville's running game is still without star running back Maurice Jones-Drew and, despite putting up plenty of points against Houston last week, still ranks 29th in the league in scoring, averaging 16.4 points per contest.
The Titans defense, with another week to get healthy, should be as prepared as they have been all year to make plays and help the team come away with a win.
