"It’s one game at a time and the games don’t get any easier," says Brees. "On the road at Tennessee is going to be a huge challenge. The Titans are playing very well right now. They’ve got some big-time players on that team."
Among the big-time players on 7-5 Tennessee is running back CHRIS JOHNSON, who has rushed for 343 yards (171.5 per game) in the past two games. In last week’s 23-17 win at Buffalo, Johnson rushed for 153 yards and two touchdowns, including a 48-yard TD run. He has nine career TD runs of at least 45 yards, tied with Pro Football Hall of Famer OLLIE MATSON and PAUL LOWE for the fourth-most in NFL history. Johnson trails Pro Football Hall of Famers BARRY SANDERS (18), JIM BROWN (13) and O.J. SIMPSON (10).
"A lot of guys are growing confidence and we’re starting to realize we have a good chance at being a great football team here," says Titans wide receiver NATE WASHINGTON. "Not just good, but great."
