Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone seemed as mystified as any casual football fan who watched Jacksonville stumble its way to a 30-9 loss to the Titans on Thursday night.

Titans running back Derrick Henry torched Jacksonville's once-vaunted defense for 238 yards and four touchdowns. Henry embarrassed the Jaguars on one play in particular, a record-tying 99-yard touchdown run where he appeared to break or elude four or five Jaguars tackles, three of those with a stiff arm.

After the game, Marrone said he was "heavily disappointed," and pointed out the obvious: the Jags didn't tackle well against Henry.

There's been plenty of grumbling from Jaguars fans about quarterback Blake Bortles and the offense this season. Bortles has been benched, but this game showed there are problems on the other side of the ball, too.

Marrone credited Henry on his career night.

"He's a good stiff-arm player, you've got to go low on him … he's a tough player to tackle," Marrone said.
