*2007 Stats

The Colts (click at your own risk) put a lot of single digit rank in stats on the board in 2007.  There is no doubt they have been one of the elite teams in the NFL for years now.  Is this the year they slip?  Time will tell, but what we do know is that the Titans have played them very well in the past couple of years, and there is no reason to think that will be any different this season.

This will be the first Monday Night Football Game in Nashville since the shootout against the Chiefs in 2004.  (By the way, Billy Volek was 29-43 for 426 yards and 4 TDs, and Drew Bennett had 12 catches for 233 yards and 3 TDs.)  We all know that Keith Bulluck is Mr. Monday Night, and that Vince Young plays his best on a national stage.  This game will be about ball control for the Titans.  Look for LenDale White and Chris Johnson to have big games.  The Titans will win this game to push their record to 7-0.
