For the fifth time in the last six National Football League seasons, the Tennessee Titans face the Jacksonville Jaguars in a Thursday Night Football matchup.

The matchup between AFC South rivals the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars has become a staple of Thursday Night Football. When the teams meet on September 19, they will have played on Thursday night in five of the last six seasons, as The Tennessean noted.

So far, the teams have split their Thursday showdowns, with the Titans taking the most recent two TNF games, in 2018 and 2016, while the Jags won the first two, in 2014 and 2015. But this matchup already looks different than originally planned, with rookie signal caller Gardner Minshew II getting his second straight start for Jacksonville, filling in for injured, big-money free agent signing Nick Foles, in the game that will stream live from Florida.

To find out how to watch a free livestream of the Tennessee Titans vs. Jacksonville Jaguars NFL Thursday Night Football Week 3 clash, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET at 67,164-seat TIAA Bank Field on Thursday, September 19. That start time will be 5:20 PT.

In the United Kingdom and Ireland, the Titans-Jaguars NFL Week 3 opener kicks off at 1:20 a.m. British Summer Time on Friday, September 20. Down under, in Australia, the game gets underway at 10:20 a.m. on Friday, Eastern Australia Standard Time, or 8:20 a.m. Western. In Japan, kickoff will come at 9:20 a.m. Japan Time on Friday morning.

The 23-year-old Minshew was the Jags’ sixth-round draft pick this year, but he suddenly found himself as the team’s No. 1 quarterback when Foles — who inked a four-year, $88 million deal with the team in the offseason — was felled with a broken clavicle in the first quarter of his first game, with Jacksonville facing the Kansas City Chiefs. Minshew came off the bench to complete 22 of 25 passes for two touchdowns, with one interception, in his NFL debut, per Pro Football Reference. But the Jaguars lost the game anyway.

Jacksonville may be without Foles, but they still retain the services of Pro Bowl cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who demanded a trade following a run-in with Coach Doug Marrone during last Sunday’s loss to the Houston Texans, as The Inquisitr reported. At least for now, the team has said that it has no intention of trading Ramsey.
