NASHVILLE, Tenn. –** The Titans lead the Jaguars 12-3 at halftime here at Nissan Stadium. A look at what's happened so far:

Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota completed 6-of-9 passes for 87 yards and a touchdown in the first half.

The Titans took a 6-0 lead early in the second quarter on a 66-yard pass from Mariota to running back Derrick Henry. On the play, Henry caught a screen pass, and picked up blocks from offensive linemen Quinton Spain and Ben Jones before racing into the open field, where he outraced Jaguars defenders to the end zone. But the extra point was blocked.

The Jaguars cut the lead to 6-3 on a 41-yard field goal by kicker Josh Lambo with 10:14 left in the second quarter.

The Titans took the lead 9-3 on a 25-yard field goal by kicker Ryan Succop. The play was set up by tight end Phillip Supernaw's fumble recovery on a muffed punt by the Jaguars.

The Titans then stretched the lead to 12-3 on Succop's 39-yard field goal. It was set up by rookie Adoree' Jackson's forced fumble, which was recovered by rookie linebacker Jayon Brown.
