This time around, everything has changed: the Titans aren't coming off of a win, they are coming off of a loss—four of them. Vince Young won't be injured during the game trying to pick up a fumble. He is on the IR.
Luckily for the Titans, the Jags and Colts are one game ahead for the division lead, and just like last time, if things play out, there could be a four-way tie in the division after this week.
Chris Johnson usually has good games on the Jags as does Maurice Jones-Drew against the Titans, so this game will probably have a lot of running in it.
Kerry Collins is a good possibility to get the start, and if he doesn't, the Titans are doomed. Collins hasn't played since the injury in Miami. If he starts, expect the Titans to try to come out passing to Nate Washington and maybe get Moss involved a little more.
Speaking of the passing game, Kenny Britt may get some playing time Sunday. It will be interesting to see how the coaches use Britt and Moss at the same time, as they both play the X position.
It is possible that the potent offense the Titans had early in the season makes an appearance Sunday. The Jags have allowed 20 or more points in three straight games and nine out of 11 games on the season.
Who will win on Sunday?
David Garrard has been playing good football and may be a threat to an ailing Titans defense that had six of its nine defensive lineman listed on the latest injury report.
There are plenty of storylines that go into this game and may come out of it, one being if the Titans drop another dud against another division rival, how long will it be before fans will want Fisher gone before the end of the season?
No matter how this game plays out, it will be interesting. I think the Jaguars continue to play well and win this game as my Titans haven't given me any reason to think they can beat a team in the past month.
I can only hope they make me look stupid as I make this prediction.
Jaguars 24, Titans, 19.
