    The Titans are back at .500, and very much in the playoff hunt heading into the second half of the NFL season.

    Next up is a game against the winless Jaguars.

    Here’s a quick history lesson for anyone who thinks the Titans (4-4) might take the Jags lightly: In November 2011, the Titans lost to the Colts, who were 0-13 heading into the contest.

    “We have to look at this game totally different,’’ Titans safety Michael Griffin said on Monday. “That was late in the season, and it is one of those games where if we’d have won, we would’ve went to the playoffs that year. We can’t look at this team any different than any other team. We don’t want them to get their first win against us.”

    The Jaguars are 0-8, and have been outscored 264-86 on the year. Jacksonville is ranked 32nd in the NFL in total offense, and ranked 27th overall on defense.

    A year ago, the Jaguars finished 2-14. One of their two wins came against the Titans in November.

    The Titans are coming off a 28-21 win over the Rams on Sunday. After this Sunday’s game against the Jaguars, they’ll face the AFC South-leading Colts at LP Field on Thursday, November 14.

    “No one’s going to be looking ahead,’’ cornerback Alterraun Verner said. “The Jaguars beat us last year. … We know we can’t take anyone lightly. The Jaguars are going to be looking for a win, so they’re going to play hard.”

    Score on the opening drive to kill them right off the bat. Can't give them any hope.

    Coming off of 3 consecutive losses and a sqeaker win against the Rams I sure hope this team wouldn't be dumb enough to take them lightly.

    This is kind of an obligatory statement whenever a team that does not suck plays a team that does.
