The Jacksonville Jaguars are hoping that another week of practice will help in defeating the 4-10 Tennessee Titans this Sunday. The first meeting between the two teams ended with a 29-27 Jaguars victory.
The Jags may get some added motivation as longtime center and 14-year NFL veteran Brad Meester announced his intention to retire at the end of the season.
“It’s something I seriously thought about for a long time,” Meester said. “It’s been a tough decision for me because this is something that I love doing. … But the more and more I thought about it, the more I know that it’s time and I’m looking forward to that next chapter in my life and being able to spend some time with my family.”
The Titans, who are second in the AFC South, have yet to win a division game and Head Coach Mike Munchak is left scratching his head.
“We should have three division wins, but we don’t,” Munchak said. “We got to finish with two here. It does mean a lot for that reason. You’re battling for second in the division I guess or whatever that comes to at the end. We got to beat a team that has given us trouble.”
