It's Halftime: What's Stood Out So Far in Titans-Jaguars


JACKSONVILLE, Fla.  – The Titans lead the Jaguars 6-3 at the half here at EverBank Field.

A look at what's stood out:

Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota completed 9-of-18 passes for 80 yards in the half. He was intercepted by linebacker Telvin Smith. Mariota was sacked once.

Kicker Ryan Succop accounted for all of Tennessee's scoring with a pair of field goals – from 40 and 41 yards.

Linebacker Brian Orakpo sacked Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles, forcing a fumble that was recovered by linebacker Erik Walden.

Safety Curtis Riley intercepted a Bortles pass that was tipped by linebacker Avery Williamson.

Receiver Taywan Taylor left the game with an ankle injury, but returned and made a 17-yard run on a reverse.

Running back Derrick Henry produced a strong run – and a first down – on 3rd and 1.

Receiver Rishard Matthews took a big hit after making a nice catch for a 15-yard gain. Matthews later hauled in a 20-yard pass to put the Titans in field goal position just before the half.

The Titans had a bad stretch of sloppy tackling in the second quarter.

Cornerback Adoree' Jackson made a nice open-field tackle on Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette for a one-yard loss on Jacksonville's first offensive series.

Receiver Eric Decker made back-to-back catches during an early scoring drive, which ended with a 40-yard kick by Ryan Succop.

DeMarco Murray ripped off runs of 4, 4, 4 and seven yards on a first quarter scoring drive.

The Titans allowed points (a field goal) to the Jaguars on their first offensive series, but forced a three-and-out when Jacksonville got the ball a second time.

Rookie linebacker Jayon Brown was on the scene early to break up a pass.
