Thursday Night Football features the two dullest gems of the worst division in the NFL.  The Tennessee Titans are 2-7 on the season and are trending to finish dead last in the division.  The Jacksonville Jaguars are 3-6, yet have the easiest remaining schedule in the league.

This game may end up as the lowest viewing audience in Thursday Night Football history, but fans of teams in the AFC South may tune in to see which team will sink and cement themselves into the basement of the division.  Houston Texans fans might watch from the depths of quarterback hell with curious interest to see Marcus Mariota and Blake Bortles.

Division rivalries are typically good games, although this one could certainly end up looking like this:

You know things are bad when you have to entertain NFL fans at the stadium by installing a pool and party deck, and then staff it by flying in dancers and bartenders from South Beach.

That's your preview for tonight's game.  The comments section is open, and the usual rules apply.
