The Titans might be the best team in the AFC South. Or they might be the worst team. At this point, entering Week 3 of the NFL season, it’s impossible to know. But at this point in the year, it seems awfully clear that their Thursday night opponent, the Jaguars, won’t be competing for an AFC South division title anytime soon. Sill, the Titans vs. Jaguars game, which you can live stream on NFL Network, is worth watching anyway.
Tennessee was victorious in Week 1, surprisingly blasting out the Browns in Cleveland, but lost a winnable game last Sunday vs. the Colts. Meanwhile, the Jaguars are 0-2 as they try to survive without starting quarterback Nick Foles, who was injured within the first 15 minutes of the season. The Jaguars are only a slight underdog for their home game, but with the way the parity-filled NFL schedule plays out weekly, Jacksonville could get smoked by Tennessee or the Jaguars could blow out the Titans. Who’s to say?
Here’s everything you need to know to find a Titans vs. Jaguars live stream.

How to watch Titans vs. Jaguars online
Though the majority of Thursday night games are simulcast on Fox and NFL Network, that isn’t the case this week. Instead, for Titans vs. Jaguars. you’ll need to have access to NFL Network or its stream to take in this contest.
What is NFL Network?
NFL Network is where you go if you want to be immersed in pro football. There’s plenty to love about NFL Network, including the ability to watch exclusive shows like Good Morning Football, NFL Total Access, A Football Life, Inside the NFL, and most importantly, Sunday’s NFL GameDay once the regular season begins. There’s also daily programming devoted to fantasy football and power rankings—the kind of stuff football lovers need in their lives. NFL Network shows most Thursday night games during the regular season, and it’ll exclusively show some of the international games in 2019. Take note, though: NFL Network can no longer be seen via DirecTV Now.
The bottom line: If you want to get closer to the action and catch (almost) every Thursday Night Football game, you need NFL Network.
Titans vs. Jaguars: Where to stream NFL Network
1) Sling TV
- Cost: $25-$40 per month (40% off first month)
- Sling TV devices: Amazon Fire TVs, Android Fire Stick, Apple TV, Android TV, Roku, Xbox One, Google Chromecast, Oculus Go, and iOS and Android devices
- Sling TV local channels: NBC, Fox (check your local availability here)
If you want to watch Titans vs. Jaguars online via Sling TV, you’ll need to be subscribed to either Sling Blue ($25 per month) or Sling Orange + Blue ($40 per month) (Sling Orange does not offer NFL Network). Both of those packages include a number of sports channels—like three ESPN channels, NBCSN, and FS1—and it’s still a nice perk that Sling subscribers can order a la carte packages. Sling TV also offers a special Latino package for bilingual viewers. Sling TV is currently offering a deal where you can subscribe for 40% off the regular price for the first month of your subscription. That means Sling Blue would cost $15, and Sling Orange + Blue would cost $25. (Here’s a complete guide to Sling TV channels and our Sling TV review.)
For $10 extra per month, you can get NFL RedZone via the Sling Blue Sports Extra package.
How to use AirTV with Sling
AirTV solves one of the Sling’s biggest problems: The inability to receive all of your local channels. By purchasing a basic AirTV for $79.99 or the AirTV Player for $119.99, you can merge those local channels into your Sling TV, (or on your mobile device if you have the basic AirTV). As the Daily Dot wrote in its AirTV review, “It’s practically magic.”
The basic AirTV is a dual-tuner streaming device, while the AirTV Player is basically an upgraded Chromecast that has Netflix preinstalled. You’ll still need to own an HD antenna because even though AirTV gets you access to your local channels, it doesn’t actually physically show them to you.
But AirTV—which has no monthly fee—serves to strengthen one of Sling’s biggest weaknesses compared to other live streaming services like Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, and PlayStation Vue. All those services have plenty of local channels.
- Cost: $54.99 per month
- FuboTV devices: Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Android TV, iOS and Android devices
- FuboTV local channels: Fox, NBC, CBS (check local availability here)
If you’re a big-time sports fan, FuboTV is probably your best streaming service option. If you love international soccer and you’re a Spanish speaker, FuboTV also offers various add-on packages, including Fubo Latino and Fubo Português. FuboTV’s basic plan boasts nearly 100 channels and includes NFL Network. At $54.99 per month, you’ll also get FS1, FS2, NBCSN, NBA TV, Big Ten Network, Pac 12 Network, BeIn Sports, and CBS Sports Network, along with premium channels like FX/FXX/FXM. The only notable omission for sports fans is ESPN. You can add Fubo’s Sports Plus package for an additional $8.99 per month, which will allow you to stream NFL RedZone, (Here’s the complete FuboTV channels list.)
- Cost: $44.99-$79.99 per month
- PlayStation Vue devices: PlayStation 3 and 4, Roku, Amazon Fire, Google Chromecast, Kodi, iOS and Android devices
- PlayStation Vue local channels: NBC, Fox, ABC, CBS (enter your ZIP code here to check your availability)
If you’d like to watch live TV directly from your PS4, PlayStation Vue is certainly your best bet. PlayStation works with streaming devices like Roku and Amazon Fire products, but what separates PlayStation from the rest of the streaming services is that it’s also compatible with Kodi. No matter how you stream, you’ll get to choose from four tiers of channels—all but the cheapest include NFL Network. From there, you can add NFL RedZone as part of the $10-per-month Sports Pack, which unlocks ESPN Bases Loaded, ESPN Classic, Longhorn Network, Outside TV, and NBCUniversal regional sports networks. You can see the full list of PlayStation Vue channels here. Two other great perks: You can stream on up to five devices at once, and there’s also unlimited cloud DVR.
Other ways to watch Panthers vs. Buccaneers online
1) The NFL app
Cost: Depends on provider
Devices: Amazon Fire Stick, Apple TV, PS4, Roku, Android RV, iOS and Android devices
If you subscribe to NFL Network through your cable provider—or you know someone who does and they owe you a sizable favor—you can also watch via the official NFL app. All you have to do is download it from your streaming device of choice—Amazon Fire Stick, Apple TV, PS4, Roku, or Android TV—and then enter in your cable credentials when prompted. You can also stream on any iOS or Android device, or on your desktop. Just visit nfl.com/watch.
Titans vs. Jaguars: Why it matters
The Jaguars season has been a disaster so far. Foles, the former Super Bowl MVP, was signed in the offseason to an $88 million deal, and in the first quarter of the season opener, he broke his clavicle and will miss at least the next two months. Gardner Minshew II has replaced him ever since, and though he’s been better than expected so far, how much can really be expected for a rookie who was drafted in the sixth round? Plenty perhaps.
“I can’t say enough [positive] about the guy,” head coach Doug Marrone said, via the team’s website. “He’s a different cat. He really is.”
Making matters worse than losing the starting QB, Jacksonville star cornerback Jalen Ramsey got into a sideline confrontation with coach Marrone on Sunday, and now, he wants to be traded away from Jacksonville.

It’s rare you actually get to see footage of a football break-up. This appears to be the straw that broke the camel’s back. Jalen Ramsey v Doug Marrone on the sideline yesterday...pic.twitter.com/kNiqIXDQWY— Rich Ohrnberger (@ohrnberger) September 16, 2019
So, yes, things aren’t great in Jacksonville at the moment.
The Titans will look to take advantage. Though they dominated Cleveland in Week 1, Tennessee’s offense struggled vs. Indianapolis, converting just one of 10 third downs and watching as QB Marcus Mariota continues to be underwhelming. And the offensive line hasn’t been great, allowing Mariota to be sacked eight times in the first two contests.
Making matters more difficult, Tennessee will only get three days to recover before having to get on the road and face a division rival.
“Our approach is going to try and do everything we can to get (the team) physically and mentally ready,” coach Mike Vrabel said at his press conference this week. “We played an emotional, physical, hot game and the Jaguars played an emotional, physical game on the road. So we have to start our preparation now to become mentally and physically ready to play Thursday.”
