Here we are looking at another game the Titans really need to win. I have been saying all week that these two teams are really evenly matched. When that is the case, you have to win the game if it is at home. That is where the Titans find themselves today.

The key here is going to be taking the middle of the field away from Andy Dalton. If they can force him to throw the ball outside the hash marks, we will see at least two picks from our corners. If not, it could be a long day.

The Titans do get a break with Jermaine Gresham missing the game, but we have seen over the last few weeks that winning the injury report doesn't mean you actually win the game.

Of course the rest of the focus will be on the split in carries between the running backs. Chris Johnson will start, but unless he rips off a couple of big runs early, I bet we see a 50/50 split between Johnson and Javon Ringer.

In case you are wondering, the Jamarcus Russell avatar I have is because of my bet with Trevor. How better to honor that than with the biggest bust ever in the NFL? Sorry, I am bitter this morning. It was a good game that LSU deserved to win. They are the best team in the country.
