The Atlanta Falcons' chance to take the NFC South lead last week essentially ended when coach Mike Smith's gamble didn't pan out.
Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak has to like his team's chances in the AFC South with the division leader facing a major injury.
The Falcons try to avoid losing two straight for the first time this season Sunday when they host a resurgent Titans team looking to continue its success against NFC foes.
A win last weekend would have lifted Atlanta (5-4) past New Orleans in the South, but instead, the Falcons are looking up in the standings following a 26-23 overtime loss to the Saints.
Atlanta forced the extra session with 10 unanswered points in the final 4:13, but Smith's decision to go for it on fourth-and-1 at the Falcons' 29-yard line backfired as Michael Turner was stuffed.
The Saints went on to kick a 26-yard field goal that ended the Falcons' season-high three-game run as well as a six-game November winning streak.
