    In his six games against the Titans over the last three years, Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has averaged more than 100 yards per contest and piled up 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. In the past, they’ve run the power at you 10 times in a row. Now it seems like they’re passing much more than running. I think we’ll see a lot more that way than we’re used to seeing from this team.”

    They were exploiting the hell out of one on one matchups, and their WRs were breaking (piss poor) tackles. Still, Henne finished the game with 2 completions for his last 13, so you might not really have too much to worry about.

    You know little boy Griffin is happy about this. Jones-Drew owns that man
