The Titans' clash with the Bills will be their fourth and final time to participate in the AFL Legacy Series.  They will appear in throwback uniforms modeled after the inaugural 1960 Oilers team that captured the first of two consecutive AFL titles, while the Bills' uniforms date back to 1965, the year they won their second AFL Championship. The two clubs unveiled the retro attire on Aug. 9 in Canton, Ohio, when the Titans defeated the Bills 21-18 in the Hall of Fame Game.

FOOD DRIVE AND VETERANS DAY OBSERVANCE

Prior to the game, fans are encouraged to participate in the Second Harvest Food Bank annual food drive by dropping off non-perishable items at one of several collection sites around LP Field.  The Titans and Second Harvest have set a drive goal of 50,000 pounds of food in recognition of the team's 50th anniversary.  Among the most-needed items are canned tuna and chicken, canned vegetables and fruit, peanut butter, rice, chili, and macaroni and cheese.

In addition, the 11th annual Titans Salute to Veterans Day will take place during the game, with 120 soldiers from Fort Campbell 101st Airborne Division unfurling a giant American Flag spanning the entire field for the National Anthem, followed by a flyover of F-16s from the 187th Fighter Wing. At halftime, the 101st Airborne Division Army Band will play each military branch's song and a color guard from that branch will parade across the field. The team will present a game ball to the Fort Campbell Commanding General and to a group of Wounded Warriors who will be attending the game.

THE BROADCAST

This Sunday's game will be televised regionally on CBS, including Nashville affiliate WTVF NewsChannel 5. Ian Eagle will handle play-by-play duties, while Rich Gannon 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.

LAST WEEK

The Titans scored 24 points off four turnovers last week at San Francisco and held on to a 34-27 victory.  Running back Chris Johnson scored two touchdowns and recorded his third consecutive 100-yard performance, totaling 135 yards on a career-high 25 carries. 

The Bills will have two weeks to prepare for the Titans due to their bye last week.  They played to a 3-5 record through the first eight weeks of the season, including consecutive road wins over the New York Jets and Carolina Panthers before a loss at home to the Houston Texans in their most recent action.  Trent Edwards started the first six games of the season at quarterback for the Bills before missing the last two contests with a concussion.  Ryan Fitzpatrick has started in Edwards' absence.
