Jaguars-Titans should be a defensive standoff
Jacksonville won the AFC South and Tennessee earned a wild-card playoff berth out of the division last season.
Now, they get the prime-time spotlight on Thursday even though both are also-rans.

Jaguars holding each other accountable with ‘DB fund’
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Safety Tashaun Gipson scanned the locker room, rubbed his hands together and smiled greedily.
There's more cash on the way.
Gipson and his fellow Jacksonville Jaguars defensive backs have started a "DB fund" that grows each time one of them drops an interception, misses a tackle or blows an assignment.
Considering the Jaguars (7-3) lead the league in total defense, points allowed, sacks and takeaways, the slush fund should be small.

His former teammates aren't amused.
