New York Jets @ Tennessee Titans: My Thoughts

The pressure on defense is the key to this game.  If the defensive line can get after Brett Favre, and I like their chances a lot better with Kyle Vanden Bosh playing, he will throw some balls up for grabs.  We all know what happens when quarterbacks throw the ball up for grabs against this secondary, but if they can't get after him it could be a long day for the Titans' secondary.  I think they will force at least 2 interceptions.

On offense running the ball will not be easy again this week.  Dinger is going to have to find different ways to get the ball to Chris Johnson.  The Jets D is really good against the run (4th in the NFL) but not so good against the pass (28th).  Since we have seen Kerry Collins win multiple games this season, I am not nearly as worried about those numbers as I was early in the season.

The scariest part about the Jets might be Leon Washington returning kicks.  Washington ranks second in the NFL in kickoff return average at just under 30 yards per return.  The Titans kick coverage team has been bad at times this season, but they did a great job against Devin Hester.  Hopefully they have figured out where they were getting gashed earlier in the season.

The Jets are a very good football team.  This game will be close until the 4th quarter, but I see the Titans pulling away to a 31-17 win.  Cortland Finnegan will get a pick 6 to put it on ice.
