It will be Matt Hasselbeck again for the Titans as Jake Locker is ruled out while still recovering from a separated shoulder. Not good news if you own a Titans WR. Hasselbeck is a shadow of his old self and has failed to put together drives outside of trash time. Kendall Wright appears to be his favorite target. Over the past two weeks Wright has been targeted 18 times, has 9 catches, 112 yards, and 1 TD. Nate Washington is the second most targeted receiver with 12 balls thrown his way, 7 receptions, 89 yards and no touchdowns.

Ringer was injured with just over three minutes to play after catching a pass near the sideline and heading up the field. Vikings cornerback Josh Robinson wrestled him to the turf, twisting the running back down awkwardly.

This game could be a lot better than most are willing to admit, but that is only if the Tennessee Titans show us something.
Yes, this could also be abysmal to watch with Matt Hasselbeck and Chris Johnson accomplishing next to nothing this season.
