Titans head coach Mike Vrabel

(on if there is any difference in Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence and his game since the first matchup)

He is extremely talented and mobile. They have gotten down in some games, which has forced them – I know he is really, really good in play action and some of those half roles in the throwbacks, for him to be able to move the launch point and throwback. He had a couple of those on us and other people as well. Arm talent is there. He makes a lot of throws. He is willing to stand in there and take some shots too.
