NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Tennessee Titans sacked David Garrard seven times and Cortland Finnegan intercepted him twice in beating Jacksonville 17-10 Sunday in the season opener between the AFC's two wild cards in 2007.
Jacksonville came in without top backup Richard Collier on the offensive line after he was shot earlier this week. The Jaguars had three more linemen get hurt, and Maurice Williams and left guard Vince Manuwai did not return. That helped Tennessee limit the Jaguars to 187 yards offense, just 33 yards rushing by what was the NFL's second-best rushing team in 2007.
The Jaguars, who had been an NFL-best 9-4 in season openers, now have lost two straight to Tennessee.
