The Titans have won two games in a row now and they are in the thick of the AFC South and wildcard chases, so this is a HUGE game for them.

Here is a look at the matchups in this game:
When the Titans have the ball: The Titans are going to have to run the ball and play keepaway if they are going to beat the Saints this Sunday.

Running back Mark Ingram has been ruled out for Week 14 at Tennessee due to turf toe, according to Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
Ingram has been playing well as of late, but the injury bug is once again spoiling his rookie campaign. Pierre Thomas should handle more carries in Ingrams absence, hence elevating his fantasy stock a bit.

The Saints won at home (big surprise) against the Lions, while the Titans won a tough one on the road against the Bills.
Drew Brees is absolutely on fire. In a season dominated by elite quarterbacks, Brees is right with Rodgers and Brady on the bad-ass scale. Lance Moore seems to be the flavor of the week among Saint receivers, as he has scored three...
