Tennessee-Jacksonville: Worst prime-time game ever?

Throw out the records when these two teams meet.

Really. Please.

Tonight’s Tennessee-Jacksonville has to be the worst prime-time game ever. Both teams are 2-12.

I don’t have the official data, but I can’t imagine there’s ever been a prime-time game this late in the season with two teams combining for a 4-24 record.

The rules mandate that each team plays on Thursday night. And the NFL wants to keep these short-week games intra-division affairs to maximize traditional rivalries.

Voila, Tennessee-Jacksonville in a battle for No. 1. The No. 1 draft pick, that is.

Good luck to Jim Nantz and Phil Simms in making this game interesting.
