NFL Thursday preview: Titans at Jaguars

Tonight: Titans at Jaguars, 8:25, NFL

Line/OU: Jaguars by 3; 43½

This is the third time in Jacksonville's past 52 games that it has been a favorite. Titans rookie Marcus Mariota, the No. 2 overall pick behind Jameis Winston, has passed for 10 touchdowns and no interceptions in three road games (2-1). But Mariota will be without his top receiver, Kendall Wright, for the third consecutive week (sprained ligament in left knee). Jaguars rookie receiver Rashad Greene, a former Florida State standout, was activated from short-term injured reserve Wednesday after missing seven games (torn ligaments in left thumb) and should complement starters Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson, who have combined for the most touchdowns (14) of any receiver tandem this season.

TOM JONES' PICK: Titans 20, Jaguars 14

READERS: Jaguars 73.9 percent.
