Chris Johnson has 18 career 100-yard rushing games.

CJ has 27 career rushing touchdowns, and needs one more to break a tie with Mike Rozier for fifth place on the team's all-time rushing touchdown list.

LB Will Witherspoon could record a sack for a fourth consecutive game. He would be the first Titans player to accomplish that feat since Jevon Kearse did in 2003, over six games.

K Rob Bironas has a current streak of 13 consecutive games with at least one field goal, the second-longest streak in team history. He holds the club record for a FG in 19 consecutive games from 2006-07. Also, Bironas has 595 career points, and needs four points to move past George Blanda(598), for second place on the all-time scoring list.

Jeff Fisher's Record vs Broncos is 1-2. This will be his 250th regular season game as the head coach of the Oilers/Titans. Putting Fisher just nine games shy of breaking Bud Grant's record of 259 with the Minnesota Vikings.
