Titans rookie wide receiver Corey Davis set a career-high with 91 receiving yards on a career-high-tying six catches in a 27-23 loss to the Rams on Sunday at Nissan Stadium, displaying the athleticism and physicality the team coveted when it selected him with the fifth overall pick in the draft. But that doesn’t get the job done. Not in his mind. “I expect to put up 100 every game,” Davis said after practice Thursday. “I know that’s probably not going to happen, but that’s just my expectation.” The Titans (8-7) can secure a second consecutive winning season and their first trip to the playoffs since 2008 by defeating the Jaguars (10-5) in the regular season finale Sunday at Nissan Stadium. Davis will get a second opportunity to produce against the Jaguars’ elite secondary – cornerbacks Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye were both named starters for the Pro Bowl, and the Jags have the No. 1-rated pass defense in the NFL. In the first matchup, he didn’t fare so well. Davis, who set the all-time FBS record for career receiving yards at Western Michigan, had just one catch for four yards and aggravated a hamstring injury in the Titans’ 37-16 victory against the Jaguars on Sept. 17 in Jacksonville. It was his least-productive game since turning pro.
