43 | TNF, October 27, 2016, 43rd matchup in regular season between Jaguars & Titans (Discussion Thread)


Week Eight begins with an all AFC South match.


10/27/2016 = 10+27+20+16 = 73
10/27/2016 = 10+27+(2+0+1+6) = 46 (Houston, Texas) (Original home of Titans)
10/27/2016 = 1+0+2+7+2+0+1+6 = 19
10/27/16 = 10+27+16 = 53 (Marcus Mariota)

Jacksonville = 43/52/61/79/133
Jaguars = 23/32/77
Jacksonville Jaguars = 66/75/84/102/210

Tennessee = 34/52/106
Titans = 20/29/83
Tennessee Titans = 54/81/189 (Jaguars would earn their 189th loss if Titans win tonight)

These teams are both members of the AFC South.  AFC South = 30/39/93

Tonight's game will be the 43rd regular season game between both teams.  Jacksonville = 43



The Titans lead the series 23-19-1 in the regular season, and 24-19-1 if you count their playoff matchup as well.

Notice the Jaguars all-time record.


If they lose tonight, the Tennessee Titans will give them their 189th loss.  Tennessee Titans = 189

To compare, here are the franchise stats of the Tennessee Titans / Houston Oilers.


Let us compare the QBs of the two teams:


This game comes 363-days after Mariota's 22nd birthday, and 3-days before his 23rd.

10/30/1993 = 10+30+19+93 = 152 (Pennsylvania = 152)



This game comes 182-days after Blake Bortles birthday, and 183-days before his upcoming birthday.

And their respective records:


Mariota is playing for his 7th win, or his 14th loss.


Bortles is playing for his 11th win, or 26th loss.

...unless they're planning a tie again...

The head coach of the Jaguars is coming into his 55th game, with a record of 14-40.  He will likely finish with his 41st first loss.


This game comes 114-days after his birthday.  Gus Bradley = 114




The opposing coach, and former coach of the Jaguars, Mike Mularkey, has the following record:


Notice he comes into the game 5-11 with the Titans.  Saturn = 93/511

This game comes 23-days before his 55th birthday.



If this game is a tribute to Super Bowl 51, hosted by the AFC South team the Houston Texans, it would make sense that Titans were 4-4 by game's end and Jaguars 2-5.  Again, the Super Bowl is on February 5, 2017, or 2/5.   2/5/2017 = 2+5+20+17 = 44 (4-4, 2-5...)

Also, the Titans were originally the Houston Oilers.

This game comes 101-days before the Super Bowl, or a span of 102-days.
