In Week 16, the Green Bay Packers manhandled the Tennessee Titans in Lambeau, 55-7, while knocking their star player Chris Johnson out of the game with an ankle injury.Johnson returned in the third quarter but was clearly affected by the injury.  While Jacksonville isn't the playoff-caliber team that Green Bay is, the Jaguars haven't given up 100 yards to a rusher since Reggie Bush in a lopsided 24-3 game a few weeks back. Don't be surprised if CJ2K is stuck in neutral this week and the Titans' offense only gets 50 yards rushing while Jake Locker has to sling the ball to Kenny Britt to keep pace.Meanwhile, Chad Henne is auditioning for the starting quarterback position on a team that may bring in Tim Tebow as its starting quarterback next year. But Henne has a pair of receivers in Justin Blackmon and Cecil Shorts that this team hasn't had since the prolific a pair of Jimmy Smith and Keenan McCardell. Unfortunately Shorts was put on IR this week so look for Blackmon to easily go over 100 yards and have a multiple score game against a Titans team that allows a league leading 451 yards per game.   Lastly, don't be surprised if the Jaguars steal this game in Nashville on Sunday as they held the Patriots' No. 1 ranked scoring offense in the NFL last week to 23 points. Only a last minute touchdown by Brady to overcome Jacksonville's exceptional effort was the difference in this game. Taking a look a the last time these two teams met earlier this season in Jacksonville, it's hard to see how the Titans win this game in spite of all the quality Jacksonville players that are on injured reserve to finish the season. Boldly take the Jags on the road in this divisional battle for the Toilet Bowl of the AFC South.
