Jaguars alone at the top of the AFC South after Titans' loss on Thursday Night Football

Jaguars offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett discusses Allen Hurns' impact

The Jaguars own sole possession of the AFC South division lead following the Tennessee Titans' 40-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday Night Football.

Jacksonville is 6-3 entering their Week 11 matchup with the Cleveland Browns. The game will take place Sunday at 1 p.m. in Cleveland. 
 
 
With the Titans (6-4) losing earlier in the week, the Jaguars now own a half-game lead over Tennessee. Jacksonville can move a full game ahead of the Titans with a win against the Browns.
 
The Titans own the head-to-head tie-breaker against the Jaguars due to a Week 2 win in Jacksonville. If the two teams have the same record leading into Week 17's rematch in Tennessee, the Jaguars will need to beat the Titans to win the division. A tie or loss would hand the division to Tennessee in that scenario.
 
On the flip side, the Steelers moved to 8-2 on the season. Pittsburgh currently has a 1.5-game lead over the Jaguars for the No. 2 seed - and a first-round bye - but Jacksonville owns the tie-breaker in head-to-head contests. The Jaguars beat the Steelers, 30-9, in Week 5.
 
The Jaguars currently own the No. 3 seed in the AFC playoff picture.
