In the final 10 games of the regular season, the Titans will have six home games, evening out a schedule that had them on the road in four of the season's first six weeks.  In addition to the Jaguars, the Titans have home contests against the Buffalo Bills (Nov. 15), Arizona Cardinals (Nov. 29), St. Louis Rams (Dec. 13), Miami Dolphins (Dec. 20) and San Diego Chargers (Dec. 25).

Fans are encouraged to bring their old cellular phones to the Titans-Jaguars game and donate them to the AT&T Used Cell Phone Drive.  The collection will benefit Cell Phones for Soldiers, a non-profit that collects old cell phones, sells them for recycling and then uses the income to purchase prepaid calling cards for U.S. servicemen and women stationed overseas.


This Sunday's game will be televised regionally on CBS, including Nashville affiliate WTVF NewsChannel 5. Gus Johnson will handle play-by-play duties, while Steve Tasker will provide color commentary. 

The Titans Radio Network, including Nashville flagship 103.3-WKDF, will broadcast the game across the Mid-South with the "Voice of the Titans" Mike Keith, color commentator Frank Wycheck, sideline reporter Cody Allison and gameday host Larry Stone.


The Titans will have played the Jaguars just 28 days prior to this week's clash.  The teams squared off Oct. 4 in Jacksonville.

In that game, the Titans were unable to overcome three turnovers and were victimized by Jacksonville quarterback David Garrard, who passed for 323 yards and three touchdowns in a 37-17 Jaguars victory.          

Offensively, Titans rookie receiver Kenny Britt notched his first career 100-yard game, leading the squad with 105 yards on seven receptions.  Also for the Titans, running back Chris Johnson rushed for a team-high 83 yards. 

The Titans have played the Jaguars at least twice every year since 1995 and lead the series 17-13. 


Like the Titans, the Jaguars were off with a bye last week.  Two weeks ago they hosted the St. Louis Rams at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium. The Rams pushed them to overtime, tying the game on a field goal with four seconds remaining in regulation. However, the Jaguars won the overtime coin toss and marched downfield on a seven-minute drive, culminating with Josh Scobee's game-winning 36-yard field goal.

The Jaguars enter the week with the 11th-ranked offense in the NFL. Their starting running back, Maurice Jones-Drew, ranks ninth in the NFL with 463 rushing yards and is tied for first in the league with eight rushing touchdowns. Quarterback David Garrard is tied for second in the AFC with only three interceptions this season.
