Tennessee Titans (2-2)

Score this Week: Lost 24-27 @Jets

Last week I said that I would put a few dollars on the Jets beating the Titans, as Tennessee was torn apart by injuries to key starters on both sides of the ball and could underestimate such a terrible opponent. After some awful time management by the Jets in the final minute of the game and yet another monster game from Derrick Henry, Tennessee almost escaped with the win but in the end, the Jets prevailed and got the Colts a crucial gift to stay in the hunt for the division early on.

Injury Report

Receivers A.J Brown and Julio Jones, cornerback Caleb Farley, edge rusher Bud Dupree, punter Brett Kern are all questionable against Jacksonville. Like the Colts, the Titans are also struggling a lot with injuries to key players.

Looking Ahead: @Jaguars

The Titans go from facing the 2nd worst team in the NFL to facing the absolute worst. Jacksonville is a real case of a dumpster fire right now. Head coach Urban Meyer is in the news for all the wrong reasons, and he seems to have lost the locker room already. There is no talent, rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence is going through the struggles of becoming an NFL quarterback, and they just lost their best offensive player for the rest of the season. I see no way the Jags can pull off the upset.

Jacksonville Jaguars (0-4)

Score this Week: Lost 21-24 @Bengals

Tough break for the Jaguars, who were at one point up 14-0, with a first and goal in the final minutes of the second quarter. Unfortunately, the Jags pulled an Indy, and came up with zero points from 1st and goal after turning the ball over on downs. Joe Burrow mounted an impressive second-half comeback that ended with a game winner by Bengals’ kicker Evan McPherson to sentence Jacksonville to a 0-4 start. Also worth noting: After the game Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer was photographed in a bar after missing the team flight back home, and there are also other explicit videos. Things are not looking good in Duval.

Injury Report

D.J Chark is out for the rest of the season with a fractured ankle, terrible luck for one of the Jaguars' best and most dynamic players. Wishing him a speedy recovery after a gruesome injury. Kicker Josh Lambo, questionable due to personal reasons, is battling with Matthew Wright for the kicker spot this week.

Looking Ahead: Vs. Titans

A tough matchup for the Jags as they will go up against a surely motivated Titans team that cannot afford to blow any more winnable games.

Houston Texans (1-3)

Score this Week: Lost 0-40 @Bills

After a win in Week 1, the Texans came crashing down back to reality, this time against one of the top teams in the AFC conference. This was over before it even started. The Bills were never in real danger, despite the Texans’ defense forcing them to settle for short field goals four different times in the first half. Houston had just 6 first downs throughout the game and went 1-9 in 3rd down conversions. The Texans also had 5 turnovers compared to just 1 by the Bills.

Injury Report

Cornerback Jimmy Moreland, wide receiver Danny Amendola, guard Lane Taylor are questionable. Starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor is expected to return in Week 6.

Looking Ahead: Vs. New England

Snoozefest coming up, as the Mac Jones led New England Patriots, who are 1-3 and just cut cornerback Stephon Gilmore, will go up against Davis Mills and the Texans, whose offense has been among the worst I have ever witnessed since Taylor went down with a hamstring injury.
