They can thank the Tennessee Titans for helping them finally get that first victory of the 2013 season.
"What I'm excited about is that we improved in many areas," Bradley said. "On my call sheet I was writing down things that were really good that were happening during the game. They just kept piling up. I thought, 'this is how it feels.'"
The Jaguars (1-8) scored the most points in a game this season. They never trailed and forced four turnovers which they turned into 17 points.
On a day the Titans (4-5) held a moment of silence for late owner Bud Adams, they got caught looking ahead to Thursday night's AFC South game with division leader Indianapolis. The Titans also lost Jake Locker to an injured right foot that had him on crutches and in a walking boot in the second half.
"We had a lot of things happen today that should never happen to us in any game," coach Mike Munchak said.
The Jaguars took advantage despite being outgained 362-214 in total offense. Henne threw for 180 yards.
The first turnover set up Jones-Drew for three straight carries capped by a 6-yard TD run. Josh Scobee kicked his second field goal, a 44-yarder, after the interception, which gave the Jaguars' their biggest lead in any game this season, 13-0 early in the second quarter. The Jaguars could have had a bigger lead if not for a shotgun snap bouncing off receiver Ace Sanders as he ran in motion.
Locker hurt his right foot in the second quarter at the end of an option keeper. He was so hobbled he couldn't connect with Johnson on a handoff on the next play, and the Jaguars recovered with 6:22 left. Locker was on crutches after the game and said he will have more tests Monday. NFL Media's Albert Breer reported that the Titans believe Locker will miss the remainder of the season with a Lisfranc injury.
"I was tired of having to come off the field because I was hurt," Locker said.
Fitzpatrick replaced Locker, and he threw for 264 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for a 4-yard TD with 4:15 left trying to rally the Titans. But after the Titans forced the Jaguars to go three and out, Fitzpatrick was sacked by cornerback Will Blackmon, who stripped him of the ball and ran it back 21 yards for a 29-20 lead.
The Jaguars also held the Titans to a pair of field goals by Rob Bironas in the second half. Bryan Anger pinned the Titans at their own 1-yard line with a 42-yard punt, and the Jaguars got a safety when rookie right guard Chance Warmack was called for holding Sen'Derrick Marks in the end zone. That safety with 7:44 left was the winning margin.
"It's something we can build off of," Marks said.
