The Tennessee Titans scored 21 unanswered points in the second half to erase a
14-3 halftime deficit in Jacksonville and defeat the Jaguars by a final score of 24-14.
However, the victory did not come easy for the Titans and in the first half, at least, it appeared that
the Titans were on their way to their first defeat of the NFL 2008 season to their division rival.
The Titans got off to a quick start when Kerry Collins connected with Justin Gage for a 47-
yard reception on the Titans first play from scrimmage. However, Jaguars safety
Reggie Nelson intercepted a pass at the two-yard line on ensuing play to end the Titans drive.
The Titans struck first as they took a 3-0 lead on a 32-yard field goal by Rob Bironas to cap an
eight-play, 57-yard drive.
In the second quarter, the Jaguars drove 74 yards on 11 plays on a drive that consumed over six minutes.
Maurice Jones-Drew scored on a two-yard run to give the Jaguars a 7-3 lead. The Jaguars extended their lead late
in the second quarter. A 31-yard punt return put the Jaguars in Titans territory, and five plays later, Jones-Drew
scored his second touchdown of the game on a one-yard touchdown run with 14 seconds remaining in the half.
In the first half, the Jaguars outgained the Titans 173 yards to 128 to take a 14-3 lead as the
Jacksonville Jaguars offense dominated the first half outpacing the Titans by a 14 to 4 in first downs.
However, the second half belonged to the Titans as they gained 216 yards on the ground while their defense
only allowed 84. The Titans had nine first downs and allowed three. The Jaguars with their eight
possessions in the second half wound up punting six times, throwing one interception and lost the ball
In the second half, the Titans wasted little time as on their
first offensive possession of the second half, the Titans marched 55 yards on seven plays to
score their first touchdown of the game on a 13-yard touchdown pass from Collins to Brandon Jones.
After forcing the Jaguars to punt after a three-and-out on the ensuing possession, the Titans
scored again. On a third-and-three from their own 44, Kerry Collins connected with a streaking Justin Gage
down the sideline for a 56-yard touchdown pass. It was the only successful third-down conversion for the Titans,
who were one-for-12 in the game (Jaguars were three-for-15 on third downs).
The fourth quarter started with a 17-14 Titans lead. The teams kept exchanging
punts until, with less than six minutes remaining in the game, Jaguars quarterback David
Garrard was hit by Albert Haynesworth on a pass attempt. The floating ball was intercepted
by Titans cornerback Chris Carr.
The Titans converted Carr's interception into a touchdown with 3:57 left in the game, when
Titans quarterback Kerry Collins connected on a 38-yard touchdown pass to Justin Gage with 3:57
left in the game to secure the 24-14 victory as the Titans remain undefeated at 10-0.
Titans quarterback Kerry Collins completed 13 of 23 pass attempts for 230
yards, a season-high three touchdowns and no interceptions for a passer rating of 112.3. Wide receiver
Justin Gage accumulated a career-high 147 yards on four receptions.
The Titans defensive shutout in the first quarter marks the sixth time in 10 games this NFL 2008 season
that the Tennessee Titans defense has held an opponent scoreless in the first quarter. After falling behind
14-3 in the first half, the Titans defense allowed just three first downs, 84 total yards and no points in
the second half. The Titans have held their opponent scoreless in the second half three times in 2008.

It’s hard to fly under the radar when you’re undefeated. But that’s exactly what the Tennessee Titans believe they’re doing, and it doesn’t bother them a bit. The Titans this week seek to become the 11th team -- including one in each of the past three years -- to start a season at 9-0 since the 16-game schedule was established in 1978.
And they don’t care if people haven’t quite noticed. "I still think we’re flying under the radar," says Titans fullback AHMARD HALL, a former U.S. Marine.
