I bet you’re chomping at the bit to find out the score of this week’s Thursday Night Football match-up between the cellar dwellers of the AFC South.
Well, I won’t keep you waiting anxiously.
Jacksonville 21 – 13 Tennessee.
Tennessee had the ball and was driving with under a minute to go – but as is wont to happen with crappy teams, quarterback Charlie Whitehurst was sacked on the final play of the game.

In a game where one of the two worst teams in the NFL would enjoy a victory, almost every ounce of excitement came on one big juke and burst by Jaguars RB Jordan Todman.
Jordan Todman – coming to the 10th round of a 2015 Fantasy Football Draft near you.
But all jokes aside, not every man can claim to have run a 62-yard touchdown on his first touch of the game.

If this dude happens to be a diamond in the rough, the Jags could be building a solid core of position players (Blake Bortles, Cecil Shorts) primed to break out next season.
But hey, weren’t we saying that last year?
Gus Bradley was supposed to have this team ready to make the leap up to mediocrity.
Instead they’ll need to upset Houston on the road in week 17 to match last season’s total of just four wins.
And on to the Number One draft pick.
Tennessee has now lost an incredible nine straight games and appear to be destined for the #1 pick.
Which often winds up meaning you know what – diddly squat.

At any rate, let’s be happy for the Jags and be happy that we’re not Titans fans (my condolences if you are).
