08:09 AM ET 11.22 | Over the last three years, Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has averaged more than 100 yards per game against the Titans, and he's added five touchdowns. But with Jones-Drew unlikely to play again this Sunday because of a foot injury, the Titans will see a very different attack. In the past four games Jones-Drew has missed with the injury, the Jaguars have averaged only 20 rushing attempts. They've averaged more than 42 pass attempts in those four games, and they've thrown for better than 300 yards in three of those contests. "It's a different Jacksonville team than we're used to," Titans coach Mike Munchak said. "With Jones-Drew hurt it makes a big difference in how they're going to attack you."

Jags become a new team

Most fans would welcome that.

It will look a whole lot different with the Jags QB out for the season. The only interest this game brings is to the fans of the two cities and the loser helps their draft position next year.

You never know. They played the Texans pretty tough last weekend. Chad Henne isn't on anyone's MVP list, although any mid-level quarterback might make it to the Pro Bowl, but it may be that he's a slightly better option than Blaine Gabbert.

But - not necessarily a better one.

Gabbert just isn't ready, If they end up landing the top pick they better take Geno Smith and make Gabbert the backup...
