Terry and I will make our predictions about the upcoming Titans game. Also, we will invite a former player, a member of the media, and a TitanInsider board member to participate.
Darren McFarland from TitanInsider:
First division game of the season for the Titans. The Titans are 2-0 on the road this year and have won two straight MNF contests, including three-of-four.
There is a history of this team having success against Jacksonville, especially down there where they are 10-6. Titans have won 5 of the last 7 meetings with the Jaguars.
Wide receiver Nate Washington has endured a lot of success recently against this team, scoring four touchdowns in the last four contests. He'll do it again making it five-for-five.
The last time these two teams met, the Titans ran for over 300-yards en route to a 30-13 victory. Chris Johnson accounted for over 200 of them. CJ goes over the 100-yard mark for the 20th time in his career and fourth this season.
FINAL SCORE: TITANS 24 JAGUARS 17
Terry McCormick from TitanInsider:
Tennessee's passing game was effective early against the Cowboys, and should have opportunities against a Jaguars secondary that has been suspect. Still, the key is getting Chris Johnson rolling. As much as CJ craves the spotlight, that shouldn't be hard to do on Monday Night Football.
FINAL SCORE: TITANS 23 JAGUARS 20
This week we have asked former eighth-round pick, from Notre Dame, punter Craig Hentrich. Hentrich was drafted in 1993 by the New York Jets but would sign with the Green Bay Packers. He punted for the Packers until 1997, where he won a Super Bowl (XXXI). In 1998 Craig signed with the Oilers (Nashville) where he played until he retired at the end of the 2009 season after notching 16 NFL seasons. Hentrich was a two-time Pro Bowl Punter in 1998 and 2003 and played in 241 games. Him and Jevon Kearse, last season, were the last two remaining members of the Titans from that '99 team that went to Super Bowl XXXIV.
I think the game comes down to a Rob Bironas field goal at the end. For some reason whenever we played the Jags, it was almost always close. I think Chris Johnson has a big game, and Rob makes a kick at the end to win it.
FINALSCORE: TITANS 30 JAGUARS 27
Our Media member this week is Teresa Walker. Teresa has been with The Associated Press for 20 years, state sports editor in Tennessee since 1992, and covering the Titans since they arrived in the state. She also covers the Predators, Vanderbilt, the Memphis Grizzlies and TSU Tigers. Teresa can be heard on The Thom Abraham Show on 560 AM Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and also appears on WHBQ AM in Memphis each Monday with Dave Woloshin and Brett Norsworthy.
The Titans play together better on the road with an Us against the world attitude. And they are jelling better on offense, which should ease the pressure on the defense to be perfect.
FINAL SCORE: TITANS 31 JAGUARS 20
Our TitanInsider board member this week is Claude Reynolds . He can be found on the board as cerey3. Claude lives in Knoxville, TN and gets back to Nashville for a couple of games a year. His favorite Titans player is Cortland Finnegan.
The Titans take the division lead after the victory, improving to 4-2. Finnegan has a pick for six and the Titans record yet another 6 sack game.
FINAL SCORE: TITANS 28 JAGUARS 17
