Henry Shines in His Return Home as Titans Spoil Jaguars Home Opener

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (FNN SPORTS) – After getting off to a slow start, the Tennessee Titans used their ground game to wear down the Jacksonville Jaguars by the score of 37-16. Derrick Henry, a Yulee, Florida native, rushed for a career-high 92 yards and scored the game-breaking 17-yard touchdown in the third quarter. The Titans finished with 179 rushing yards and most of them came in the 2nd half (Henry had 87 of his 92 in the second half).

Tennessee also got rushing touchdowns from Delanie Walker and Jalston Fowler as they scored 31 of their 37 points in the second half. Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota finished 15 for 27 for 215 passing yards with one touchdown and one interception. He also contributed 24 rushing yards. The Titans did most of their rushing yard damage with leading rusher DeMarco Murray only having 29 yards and he did not play the majority of the second half with a hamstring injury.

Jacksonville started the game off strong. After holding the Titans to a three-play-and-punt drive, they went on a 12 play, 51-yard drive to give themselves a 3-0 lead. Then Tennessee added two field goals, including one at the end of the half to make the score 6-3.

The Jaguars committed three turnovers in the game and had four possessions of three plays and punts in the game. Starting quarterback Blake Bortles threw for 223 yards in the game, but most of them came in the final quarter, where the Jaguars were down as many as 28 points. Bortles struggled to make plays down without Allen Robinson. Robinson suffered a season-ending ACL injury in their victory against Houston last week. Allen Hurns led Jacksonville with six catches for 82 yards and a touchdown catch.

Leonard Fournette, who rushed for 100 yards in his debut, was held to 40 yards on 14 carries. He also scored a one-yard run in the fourth quarter.
