However, there was progress in that area, with Decker catching three passes for 32 yards, rookie Taywan Taylor caught a 42-yard pass that led to a touchdown in the third quarter.

Noah Spence (strip-sack) and Gerald McCoy (four QB hits) led the Bucs' pass rush.

"We lost an opportunity to win another division game, but it was only week two", said defensive co-captain, linebacker Paul Posluszny.

Jackson's return set up the Titans' first touchdown in the third quarter on Derrick Henry's 17-yard run that helped put Tennessee ahead 16-3.

Veteran safety Johnathan Cyprien out of the Titans squad with a hamstring injury and Da'Norris Searcy is expected to fill his spot. "You're playing from behind the sticks and it's first-and-20, second-and-20, second-and-15". Tennessee Titans RB DeMarco Murray had nine carries for 25 yards, his second straight game with fewer than 50 rushing yards to start the season. Surely, focusing on Allen Hurns rather than Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree was a welcome change for Tennessee.

Adoree' Jackson had trouble covering the quick slant routes. Murray's status is thus worth monitoring closely as Week 3's home game against the Seahawks approaches.

Carolina's new-look offensive line had its issues, and the run game encountered tough sledding vs. Buffalo's active front, but its "D" was tremendous.

Some weeks, the Jaguars will play great defense and Leonard Fournette will run for plenty of yards and Jacksonville will win. The defense registered a couple sacks, intercepted two passes and recovered a fumble.

Through the first six quarters of the season, the Jaguars had surrendered a total of 13 points. He then wasted roughly 40 more seconds on Buffalo's last drive before spending his final timeouts.

Bortles continued to produce turnovers in the second half. "And once our offense got going, they're impossible to stop". Jerry Hughes had a monster game and Shaq Lawson was also extremely effective, encouraging since Lorenzo Alexander was injured early. He completed 11 passes for 125 yards. It was competitive until intermission, but couldn't overcome Bortles' repeated errors.

"That's what we need, when one side is struggling the other side has to pick it up and that's what we did", said linebacker Brian Orakpo. One obvious example: Jalen Ramsey, who again played well in coverage, delivering an extremely late hit out of bounds on Delanie Walker after the tight end scored on a jet sweep to make it a three-possession game. The former Heisman Trophy victor broke free for the game's first touchdown on a 17-yard burst in the third quarter and probably could have had a couple more if the Titans had used him on the goal-line (Delanie Walker and Jalston Fowler both vultured second-half touchdowns). "Defensively, we're going to play to the best of our abilities regardless of what happens with the offense or special teams because we're all in this together". He finished with one catch for 4 yards, but the good news is he returned to the game in the fourth quarter.
