Titans coach Mike Vrabel on the matchup vs Jaguars:

“This is a division game. These division games are tough. They’re close. Everybody knows the personnel. I wouldn’t imagine that we’d see a lot of different stuff from them. (Leonard) Fournette is coming back. I would imagine a heavy dose of run. They’re physical. Their defense is physical. So, it’s something that we think is going to help us win that game is just trying to play a physical football game.”
