Sunday, 1:00 pm Eastern – CBS
SBG Global Opening Line: Titans – 5.5 , Total 41
The undefeated Tennessee Titans get their next test on the way to a possible perfect season as Brett Favre and the New York Jets visit on Sunday. The Titans are looking to become only the 13th team in NFL history to begin a season 11-0. To do so they will have to slow down Favre and the Jets. “I think it’s a measuring stick for us to find out who we are and what we’re capable of doing,” said Favre. SBG Global reports that early NFL betting has the public taking Titans at Home.
The Jets have been getting excellent play of late out of Favre who has completed almost 77 percent of his passes the last two weeks. “You can never afford to take a deep breath as long as Brett Favre is on the opposite sideline, that’s just how he is,” Titans coach Jeff Fisher said. “You can get up by 45 and he’ll come back and beat you by seven, that’s just the way Brett’s been throughout his career. Not that I’m saying we’re going to get up by 45.” The Jets also have a solid running game led by Thomas Jones who leads the AFC in rushing with 854 yards. The Jets should get tested this week by a Tennessee defense that has given up the fewest points in the league.
The Titans have been winning lately on the arm of Kerry Collins. He has thrown for 519 yards with five touchdowns and one interception in wins over the Bears and Jaguars. “I think he’s doing a great job,” Favre said. “I can remember playing against Kerry in the championship game in ’96, I think, and here we are facing off again. … I give him a lot of credit.”
