Titans vs Redskins tickets available for less than $10

Neither has happened in 2014, as Locker has once again dealt with nagging injuries and the Tennessee Titans as a whole have been woefully inconsistent.

Mettenberger Time Should Be Coming Soon in Tennessee

There is no need to start Charlie Whitehurst at any point during the remainder of the season unless it is absolutely necessary. By that, I mean if he is the only QB on the roster left to start.
