The Titans were punched in the face almost as soon as they took the field against the Jaguars last week, rolled by Maurice Jones-Drew and an offense that marched 63 yards for a touchdown.
It set the tone for a game in which the Jaguars pounded out 163 rushing yards, held the ball for almost 40 minutes and converted half of their third-down opportunities.
Hey, maybe a little humiliation is a good thing.
It sure looked like it motivated the Titans in their 26-13 win over the Ravens on Sunday.
The Titans limited Ray Rice and the Ravens to only 45 total rushing yards, surrendered only 24:08 time of possession and allowed only three third-down conversions in 10 attempts.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
