*All stats are 2007 regular season

I am going to get through the schedule before Sunday, so I am going into hyper-breakdown mode.

The Jets are the only non-divison team that it seems like the Titans play every season. Last season they played one of the ugliest games in the history of football with the Titans coming out on top 10-6.

As I said when I previewed the Packers game, the stats here can basically be thrown out the window because of the Brett Favre factor. It is really hard to say what will happen in this game because we really don't have any idea how Favre is going to come along in this offense. He does have two really good receivers, Laveranues Coles and Jerricho Cotchery, and a pretty good running back in Thomas Jones, so you have to figure the offense will at least be pretty good. The thing with Favre is that you can make him be his own worst enemy. The Titans should be able to pick him off a couple of times.

The Jets were bad against the run last season. The Titans were able to gain 127 yards in the game here last season. They will try and grind it out to keep Favre and company off the field. No reason to think they won't be successful doing that.

A successful running game + a couple of forced turnovers = Titans 9-2.

Ridicule away..
