Jacksonville Jaguars (4-6) at Tennessee Titans (5-5)

Sunday, November 24, 4:05PM ET

Since Ryan Tannehill took over for the Tennessee Titans, they haven’t been half bad. While I don’t think they’re quite good enough to sneak into the playoffs, they’re definitely worthy of predicting a few more wins before the 2019 season is in the books.

So why not pick them here in Week 12 to take down their divisional foes, the Jacksonville Jaguars? It’s not like the Jaguars have done much to impress us in recent weeks. Even with the return of Nick Foles, it’s been a bumpy ride for Jacksonville fans who once believed that Minshew Magic could will them into the postseason.

In the end, it’ll be the Titans’ well-balanced play that seals the deal on Sunday. Tannehill and Derrick Henry have this offense running well, and the Tennessee defense isn’t one worth overlooking. They’ve excelled on both sides of the ball in recent weeks, so expect more of the same at home against the Jaguars.

This year hasn’t gone as planned for the Jaguars, who had dreams of postseason glory back in September. Even if it wasn’t for Foles’ injury, they’d likely still be in a similar situation. At this point, another loss doesn’t really hurt — it just helps their draft positioning.

Prediction: Titans win 20-18
