Last week: 24 (+1)
The Tennessee Titans will get back into the flow of things after enjoying their bye week and we'll resume our regular weekly question and answer exchange with a blogger from the other side. This week, we'll be joined by Shane Clemons, who runs the fine Jacksonville Jaguars blog, The Jaggernaut. If you have any questions for Shane, leave them in the comments and I will...
With quarterback Jake Locker close to full strength and running back Chris Johnson back to All-Pro form, the Tennessee Titans haven't given up trying to sneak into the playoff picture.
Having two games left against the Jacksonville Jaguars certainly shouldn't hurt their cause.
With little margin for error, well-rested Tennessee heads to Jacksonville on Sunday looking to...
Time for this week's NFL announcing recap from the past Sunday in Straight Outta Stockton.
