Tennessee Titans 

Quarterback

Ryan Tannehill only registered a 5.2 aDOT on his 32 pass attempts, with no big-time throws or touchdown passes. However, Tannehill didn't have a turnover-worthy play and posted an 82.8 adjusted completion percentage en route to a 79.1 passing grade.

Running Backs

Three rushing first downs, one rushing score and 25 yards after contact was all in a day's work for D’Onta Foreman. His rushing grade was rather pedestrian (57.6), but he made the most out of his 13 carries.

Wide Receivers/Tight Ends

Julio Jones was efficient in his return with four catches on five targets and one explosive play. He earned a 65.4 receiving grade despite just 33 yards receiving. Geoff Swaim had a receiving first down and an explosive pass play of his own to bolster his receiving grade of 64.2 

Offensive Line

Tennessee allowed 16 pressures, 10 hurries, four hits and two sacks. Their 41.0% pressure rate led to a lowly 40.2 pass-blocking grade. Rodger Saffold struggled to a 27.0 pass-blocking grade on 24 pass-blocking attempts. 

Defensive Line

Three stops and two tackles for losses by Jeffery Simmons highlighted his 80.6 run defense day. As a pass-rusher, Simmons earned half a sack, had five hurries and six total pressures en route to a 69.8 pass-rushing grade. 

Linebackers

Middle backer Jaylon Brown had a defensive stop and an interception during an outstanding coverage day.

Secondary

Kevin Byard had a stop, four tackles and a forced incompletion, good for a 72.0 coverage grade. He's played at an All-Pro level this season. 

Jacksonville Jaguars

Quarterback

Trevor Lawrence‘s rough rookie season continued with four interceptions and zero big-time throws to speak of. His 40.9 passing grade was somewhat salvaged by an 8.9 aDOT.

Running Backs

James Robinson earned a 65.5 rushing grade, highlighted by one explosive rush. Still, he struggled to get a rushing rhythm with just 14 yards on seven carries. 

Wide Receivers/Tight Ends

Marvin Jones had a decent day with 70 receiving yards, three first downs and two explosive plays. James O’Shaughnessey reeled in four of six targets, but none went for first downs or explosive plays and he finished with a 51.7 receiving grade. 

Offensive Line

The Jags' O-line allowed 16 pressures, three sacks and 12 hurries to finish with an overall 54.7 pass-blocking grade. Cam Robinson led the charge with a promising 78.4 pass-blocking grade that featured only three pressures allowed in 47 pass-blocks. 

Defensive Line

Roy Robertson-Harris allowed five total pressures, three hurries and a sack headlined in a solid performance.

Linebackers

Damien Wilson earned a 68.9 run defense grade thanks to four defensive stops and three tackles for loss. He also tallied a sack and two pressures for a 78.9 pressure grade. 

Secondary

Shaquill Griffin allowed just one first down on three receptions and had a defensive stop for his second 70-plus coverage grade of the season.
