NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Another season, another inexplicable loss by the Tennessee Titans to a previously winless team.
Now they have only four days to recover for an AFC South showdown with their quarterback sidelined at least for a game, if not longer.
The Titans lost quarterback
In the process, the Titans (4-5) missed an opportunity to close on Indianapolis before their game Thursday night.
''We blew it,'' coach Mike Munchak said.
''It's disgusting,'' Titans tight end
''We had a lot of things happen today that should never happen to us in any game,'' Munchak said.
Now the Titans likely will be without Locker on Thursday night. He hurt his right foot in the second quarter at the end of an option keeper and left the stadium on crutches wearing a walking boot. Locker said he will have more tests Monday to determine the extent of the damage but said he's hoping it's not a season-ending injury.
''I can't imagine in four days he'd able to play as sore as he was,'' Munchak said of Locker.
What happened to Locker summed up the Titans' day.
Titans coaches thought Locker was shaking off a hit only to realize he was more seriously injured when Locker was so hobbled on the next play that he couldn't cleanly hand off to
''That's not CJ's fault,'' Locker said. ''I wasn't able to get to him. I just kind of got to the point I was tired of having to come off the field because I was hurt. I wanted to give it a chance and just wasn't able to push off like I wanted to.''
The Titans wound up outgaining the Jaguars 362-214 and had a final chance to pull off a comeback after Fitzpatrick found Walker on a 14-yard TD pass with 40 seconds left. But the onside kick went straight to Johnathan Cyprien of the Jaguars.
''We didn't match their intensity,'' Titans safety
The Jaguars celebrated with game balls going to everyone from owner Shad Khan, general manager David Caldwell and first-year coach Gus Bradley on down. Their win now leaves Tampa Bay as the only winless team in the NFL, and the Buccaneers host Miami on Monday night.
''It's definitely a great feeling,'' Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne. ''Hopefully we can build on this. We can't become complacent and say we got our first win ... we've still got to improve on what we've done today and get better individually.''
NOTES: The Jaguars now have won four of the past six in this series. ... Johnson passed Earl Campbell for second all-time behind only Eddie George for most yards from scrimmage in franchise history.
