Tennessee_titans_30x21 Vince Young has a pretty good history of playing the state of Texas, and he's always excelled on the big stage.  We're going to need him to keep that history going if we're going to walk away with a win and get closer to .500 in the process.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 LenDale wants to be the starter, but he knows better than to disrupt a good thing.  He knows he doesn't have much of an argument as long as Chris Johhnson is running like the best back in the league, but that doesn't mean he's satisfied on the bench either.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 For all of the star power and hype on several match-up heading into tonight, I think it's hard to argue that the match-up of Cortland Finnegan and Andre Johnson is one of the best you'll see all year, never mind all night.  It'll be interesting to see if Cort follows Johnson around, or if he sticks to his one side of the field like he did in week two... if it's the later then you can bet they'll be working on getting Johnson working deep against Michael Griffin.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 ESPN has a dedicated page for the Monday Night match-up, so check it out for updated content through the day.

Follow us through the jump to find-out who has us ranked above the Giants at the moment...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 PK has a long passage on the maturity of Vince Young, and in a rare moment of non-NFC East butt kissing, PK keeps the Titans in the Fine 15 while the Giants are outside looking in:

15. Tennessee (3-6). Save your breath, Giants fans. Tennessee's playing better over the last month than the Giants are, and the way I consider this ranking is if the teams played today on a neutral field, who would win? If they lined up tomorrow in Morgantown (well, they'd both be a little tired, particularly Tennessee, which plays tonight), I'd pick the Titans to win.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Another sign this is a big game: how often do you see a Titans game previewed in the LA Times?

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Houston fans have good reason to despise our throwback jerseys, and if the sales numbers are any indication Titans fans don't care too much for them either.  If you've been around here very long you probably know my stance on this: I wish the Oilers history had been left in Houston ala the Ravens/Browns dynamic, but I can certainly understand why Bud Adams would refuse to leave behind the legacy of the team he founded from scratch.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 On a related note, John McClain was there when the surviving members of the inaugural Oilers team reunited yesterday, including Hall of Famers Ken Houston and Elvin Bethea.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 For those who missed it over the weekend, here's the ad Bud Adams took out in Sunday's Buffalo News to make up for his double barrel salute last weekend.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 PFW reports that Steve Slaton won't just get the start tonight, but will carry the majority of the load as long as he's not putting the ball on the ground.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Congrats to former Titans coordinator Jim Schwatz for leading his Detroit Lions to a nail-bitting win.  Sure it was over the laughable Browns, but there are no small victories in Detroit this year.
