NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVO/WQRF) — After making NFL history in his debut last week, breaking the record for most rushing yards by an undrafted player in their first start, James Robinson one-upped himself in Week 2.

The Jacksonville Jaguars headed north for a divisional matchup with the Tennessee Titans. The Jaguars fell down early and trailed 24-10 at halftime.

After the intermission, Robinson did his thing. With his help, the Jaguars tied it at 30-30 midway through the fourth quarter but a field goal inside the two-minute warning and an untimely interception by Gardner Minshew sealed the game.

Robinson finished the game with 16 carries for 102 yards and recorded his first career NFL touchdown. He also had three receptions for 18 yards.

“I think what you guys are seeing now is what I’ve seen all camp, just a real good, steady football player…” said Jaguars Head Coach Doug Marrone. “Tough runner, he’s got a little burst getting through the second level. Was happy obviously to see him take that one to the end zone.”

The Jaguars head back home and will host an in-state matchup Week 3 when the Miami Dolphins visit TIAA Bank Field.
