The Jaguars end a seven-game losing streak with a hard fought home victory over the division rival Titans.
In a game featuring two of the NFL's worst defenses, defense was what controlled the play all day. The Titans managed to rack up seven sacks after entering the game with just 16 and the Jags stifled Jake Locker and the Titans offense throughout.

Tennessee responds quickly after a 31-yard Chris Johnson run and a six-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Britt, it's a two-point game again.
Jaguars easily move down field to pick up their third touchdown of the game and make it a two-score game again 21-12.
The Titans take advantage of the Jaguars suddenly depleted secondary to drive down the field, but still fail to score a touchdown. Bironas puts through his fourth field goal of the day.
Another promising Tennessee drive ends in a field goal as the Titans make it a one-score game again. Jags lead 14-9 in the third quarter.
Cecil Shorts continues to terrorize NFL corners as he pulls in an easy 59-yard pass for a score. Jags are starting to look like a good team.
This unsurprisingly dull first half draws to a close with a Titans 40-yard field goal to bring the combined score to 13.
After a couple of horrendous drives concluding with an interception and a punt, the Jaguars move the ball methodically to pick up a touchdown and the lead.
