Every week, we’ll take a look at one of the week’s matchups and reminisce about a previous meeting between the teams.Titans 33, Jaguars 14 (1999 AFC Championship Game)Over time you hear about a lot of trends and statistics in the National Football League that sound good but simply are not true. One of the most popular is that “it’s hard to be a team three times in a season.” And there was no better example of this misconception than during the 1999 season between a pair of divisional rivals.Just over a decade ago, the Cleveland Browns were resurrected (following the franchise’s departure to Baltimore and its subsequent rebirth into the Ravens), meaning the AFC Central would now house 6 teams. Joining the Browns and Ravens were the Steelers, Bengals, the Tennessee Titans (formerly the Houston/Tenneesee Oilers) and the Jacksonville Jaguars, who were entering their fifth season of existence.<!--more-->Tom Coughlin’s team had made a meteoric rise since its debut in 1995, reaching the AFC Championship Game in ’96 and following that with 2 more playoff appearances. In ’99, the Jaguars were an NFL-best 14-2 and gave up the fewest points in the NFL (217). But Jacksonville’s only 2 losses that season were to Jeff Fisher’s Titans, who were an impressive 13-3 and like the Jaguars, headed to the playoffs.Both clubs had memorable performances on their way to meeting in the conference title game. Tennessee used the “Music City Miracle” to stun the Bills, then surprised the Colts and second-year QB Peyton Manning in Indianapolis. Meanwhile, the Jaguars humbled the Dolphins, 62-7, in the Divisional Playoffs, the second-most points ever scored in a postseason game. Off such a dominating performance, Coughlin’s team figured the third time would be the charm against the Titans.But it wasn’t meant to be. While the Jaguars owned a 14-10 halftime lead, they were blanked in the second half by an aroused Tennessee defense, which held QB Mark Brunell and company to 154 yards of total offense in the final 30 minutes. Meanwhile, Fisher’s team would score 23 points, keyed by a pair of touchdown runs from QB Steve McNair (who rushed for 91 yards in the contest) and an 80-yard punt return for a score by PR Derrick Mason. The Titans would go onto Super Bowl XXXIV and lose a very memorable game to the Rams.So by the end of their playoff run, the Jaguars were 0-3 vs. the Titans and 15-0 vs. the rest of the teams they played. Never let it be said that football isn’t a game of matchups.
