The Jaguars took an early lead against the Titans during their first possession, with quarterback Trevor Lawrence connecting with wide receiver Calvin Ridley for a three-yard touchdown pass. Despite a deflected extra point attempt by Brandon McManus, the Jaguars maintained their advantage and held a 7-0 lead with just under three minutes left in the first quarter.
The game began with both teams exchanging punts, but the Titans gained momentum when wide receiver Chris Moore ran for 38 yards, advancing the ball into Jaguars territory. However, their drive was halted when quarterback Will Levis mishandled a snap, resulting in a fumble that was recovered by Foye Oluokon of the Jaguars. Oluokon’s impact was felt on the opening drive, as he also recorded a sack earlier in the game.
As the first quarter comes to a close, the Jaguars’ strong defensive play and early lead have given them an advantage over the Titans.
