After an incredibly disappointing loss to the New York Jets, the Tennessee Titans hope to bounce back against the struggling Jacksonville Jaguars. This is an important matchup for Tennessee, as a win will give them some confidence to carry over into Week 6. It’s time to continue our NFL predictions series with a Titans Week 5 prediction.

The loss to the Jets was disheartening, but it’s not the end of the world. This franchise still has plenty of time to figure things out. With the news of Urban Meyer upsetting the Jaguars, this is a perfect opportunity for the Titans to strike. Look for Tennessee to come out and punch Jacksonville in the mouth on Sunday.

To do that, the Titans will need to be rolling on all cylinders. Harold Landry has been one of the few bright spots on the defense and could be in for a big game. Additionally, there’s a real chance Julio Jones comes back and provides consistency in the passing game once again. Meanwhile, Derrick Henry will look to have a big performance, as usual. With that said, here are four bold Titans Week 5 predictions versus the Jaguars.

Titans Week 5 Predictions

4. Harold Landry records 2 sacks 

In comparison to last season, the Titans’ defense has improved. However, they’re not perfect just yet. One glaring weakness was the pass rush, but Harold Landry has been on fire to start the season. He’s playing as an elite pass rusher and has already recorded 2.5 sacks.

Tennessee needs Landry to continue playing at a high level. The Jaguars have been one of the better pass protection teams in the league so far, so bringing down Trevor Lawrence will be a tough task. Even so, the Titans have the tools on the defensive line to wreak havoc on Sunday. Look for Landry to play a key role and potentially double his sack totals in one game.

3. Julio Jones plays and comes up big for the Titans

The Titans were in dire need of Julio Jones and AJ Brown in their previous game. So much so, the coaching staff may consider bringing back at least one of them for their next matchup. Between the two, Julio Jones is more likely to come back sooner.

If that’s the case, Julio could be in for a big performance. Jacksonville has nobody in their secondary that matches up with Jones. Additionally, the Jaguars have allowed the third-most yards through the air so far this season (1,249). If he’s available, the Titans should highly consider playing Julio Jones to provide a much-needed boost for the offense.

2. The offensive line steps up and shows improvement

Somehow, Tennessee allowed seven sacks in their last game. Due to the incredibly poor play from the offensive line, the Titans have allowed the most sacks in the league so far (17). It’s the complete opposite of how they played last year, as they only allowed 24 total sacks last season. Something needs to change and fast. Otherwise, this is going to be a long year for Ryan Tannehill.

1. Derrick Henry goes ballistic for 200+ rushing yards and 2 touchdowns

Derrick Henry is the best running back in the league and routinely carries the Titans on his shoulders in most of their games. Due to the poor performance from the rest of his teammates in Week 4, Henry may decide to put the team on his back and run over the Jaguars’ defense altogether. He has a history of dominating Jacksonville and that trend should continue on Sunday.
