Griffin: Second loss to Jags would be bad

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans feel like they owe the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Jags won at LP Field on Nov. 10, getting their first win after losing their first eight.

Tennessee has lost four of their last six against the Jaguars during a stretch where Jacksonville has not won many games.

If the Titans lose at EverBank Field Sunday, they’d fall to 0-5 in the AFC South and fall out of second place in the AFC South standings.

The Titans are in Year 3 of Mike Munchak’s regime. The Jaguars are in Year 1 of Gus Bradley’s.

What would it say about Tennessee if the Jaguars sweep the Titans?

“Embarrassing,” free safety Michael Griffin said. “It’s already embarrassing that we lost five straight home games not to be going to the playoffs despite the fact that we’ve got the players and we’re a better team than last year. The record doesn’t show it. It’d be pretty embarrassing, especially that we’d be tied up when it comes to the record, but they’d be in second place, Our records would be exactly the same and you’d be talking about two wins against us. That’s embarrassing.”

Mike Munchak sees no possibility of the Titans letting up against the Jaguars, who are now without their top receiver, Cecil Shorts, and have a hobbled Maurice Jones-Drew who may not play.

“It doesn’t matter who plays,” Munchak said. “For a while now they’ve won more than we feel they should have. They’ve found a way to play well against us with any injuries they’ve had. We expect to see a team with a lot of confidence, we’re a team we assume they are very confident playing against. I would be.”
