Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – The Jacksonville Jaguars are the Tennessee Titans’ longest-standing division rival. The clubs have met at least twice each year since Jacksonville began play as an expansion franchise in 1995. For the first seven seasons of the rivalry they played in the AFC Central, and for the last 18 years they have been members of the AFC South.

The teams have met a total of 50 times, with the Titans holding a 29-21 advantage. For eight consecutive seasons (2009–2016), the Titans and Jaguars split the annual series before Tennessee took both matchups in 2017 and 2018.

In their first battle of 2019, the Titans and Jaguars were featured on Thursday Night Football for the fifth time in six seasons (2014-19).

The Jaguars hosted the game and won by a final score of 20-7, taking a 3-2 lead in the Thursday night series. Jaguars rookie quarterback Gardner Minshew earned his first career victory as a starter.

The last meeting at Nissan Stadium was Thursday night, December 6th, 2018. Derrick Henry rushed for a franchise-record 238 yards and four touchdowns on 17 carries, lifting the team to a 30-9 win. On one of his scores, Henry matched Tony Dorsett to become only the second running back in NFL history to record a 99-yard rushing attempt.

The Titans have posted two separate five-game winning streaks against the Jaguars, dating from 1998-00 and 2001-03. Jacksonville’s longest winning streak in the series was a four-game run from 1996-98. The stakes of the rivalry were never higher than in 1999, when the Titans and Jaguars met three times, including the AFC Championship Game in Jacksonville.

Steve McNair rushed for two touchdowns and Derrick Mason returned a kickoff 80 yards for a touchdown as the Titans earned their first Super Bowl berth with a 33-14 win. Tennessee went on to Super Bowl XXXIV and eventually fell at the hands of the St. Louis Rams, 23-16.

The Jaguars played their first game in franchise history against the then-Houston Oilers on September 3rd, 1995. In Jacksonville, the Oilers won the game by a 10-3 final score.
