Titans (4-2) Host Eagles (4-2) Sunday at LP Field





NASHVILLE, Tenn. —** After winning two consecutive games on the road, the Tennessee Titans (4-2), who are tied for first place in the AFC South, return to LP Field this week to face the NFC East co-leading Philadelphia Eagles (4-2).  Kickoff at LP Field (capacity 69,143) is scheduled for noon CDT on Sunday, Oct. 24.

Prior to the game, fans are encouraged to participate in the annual Titans Foundation Coat Drive.  New and used coats can be dropped off at one of several collection sites around LP Field.  The donated coats subsequently will be delivered to Middle Tennessee non-profit agencies.


The game will be televised regionally on FOX, including Nashville affiliate WZTV FOX-17.  Kenny Albert and will handle play-by-play duties, while Daryl Johnston will provide analysis.  Tony Siragusa will serve as sideline analyst. 

The Titans Radio Network, including Nashville flagship 104.5 The Zone, will broadcast the game across the Mid-South with the "Voice of the Titans" Mike Keith, analyst Frank Wycheck, sideline reporter Cody Allison and gameday host Larry Stone.


Last week at Jacksonville, the Titans earned a 30-3 victory on Monday Night FootballKerry Collins came off the bench after Vince Young left the game with a knee injury, and together the quarterbacks combined for a 123.3 passer rating, totaling 171 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions.  Chris Johnson contributed 111 rushing yards and a touchdown and currently ranks second in the NFL with 596 rushing yards in 2010. 

The Titans defense held the Jaguars to 249 net yards and a 23 percent conversion rate on third down.  They forced four turnovers—three interceptions and one fumble—and added a pair of sacks. 

The Titans are currently ranked third in the NFL in scoring, averaging 27.0 points per game.  They are fourth in the league in scoring defense, allowing 16.3 points per contest.  The resulting 10.7 points-per-game differential is the second best figure in the league behind only the Pittsburgh Steelers (10.8). 

The Eagles are in a two-way tie with the New York Giants for first place in the NFC East.  They have won their last two games—a 27-24 victory at San Francisco and a 31-17 win at home last week against the Atlanta Falcons.

Against the Falcons, Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb completed 23 of 29 passes for 326 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.  Kolb, a second-round pick in 2007 out of Houston, has started three of the team's six games.  Michael Vick was inserted as the starter in Week 2 but has been out of the lineup since suffering a rib injury in Week 4 against Washington.  Vick (108.8) and Kolb (98.3) are ranked first and second in the NFC in passer rating, respectively.

The Eagles have the NFL's fourth-ranked offense (380.3 yards per game) and the 11th ranked defense (314.0).  Their plus-eight turnover ratio ranks third in the league.


The Titans hope to continue their winning ways versus teams from the NFC. They have not lost an interconference matchup since a 13-10 defeat at Tampa Bay on Oct. 14, 2007.  Their 11-game non-conference winning streak is a franchise record, topping a nine-game run from 1999 to 2001, and it is the longest current streak of its kind in the NFL.  The Titans have two victories against NFC East so far this season: a 29-10 win at the New York Giants on Sept. 26 and a 34-27 defeat of the Dallas Cowboys on Oct. 10.

The Titans have been one of the NFL's most successful teams in interconference play since the league's realignment in 2002.  With a 25-9 record (.735) during that timespan, only the New England Patriots (.875, 28-4) and Indianapolis Colts (.794, 27-7) have fared better.
