 The Jacksonville Jaguars came off the field at halftime thrilled with a 14-3 lead over the undefeated Tennessee Titans.
Playing a team that had won nine straight, though, called for more than a half's worth of effort.
Kerry Collins threw three touchdown passes, Albert Haynesworth dominated defensively again and the visiting Titans improved to 10-0 with a 24-14 victory over the Jaguars on Sunday.
``They were definitely turning their dials up a little bit and we didn't match it,'' Jaguars quarterback David Garrard said. ``That's unfortunate because we had a perfect opportunity. We have to do a lot better than that, especially when the game's on the line.''

After dropping third-down passes and committing costly penalties in the first half, the Titans regrouped at halftime and handed Jack Del Rio the second-worst collapse of his six-year coaching career with Jacksonville (6-4).
``It's great,'' Haynesworth said. ``People keep counting us out and we like proving the world wrong, I guess.''
Collins, Haynesworth and third-string cornerback Chris Carr deserve much of the credit.
Collins directed consecutive touchdown drives to open the third quarter, turning an 11-point deficit into a three-point lead.
He sealed the victory with a perfect 38-yard TD pass to Justin Gage with 3:57 remaining. Collins and Gage also hooked up for a 56-yard score in the third period - the only third-down conversion for the Titans. They were 1-of-12 on third down.
Collins finished 13-of-23 for 230 yards, Gage caught four passes for 147 yards and Carr knocked down three passes and had a late interception.
``It's great,'' Haynesworth said. ``People keep counting us out and we like proving the world wrong, I guess.''

Shayne Graham missed a 47-yard field goal with 7 seconds left in overtime for Cincinnati (1-8-1), falling to the ground as the ball sailed a few inches wide to the right. It was a fitting way to end a game played like the very definition of a tie. Despite all the shanked punts and trick plays, this one went nowhere.
