Titans missions

1.Get down with Brown.Chris Brown still has not had a 100-yard rushing game for the Titans, despite averaging a respectable 4.2 yards per carry. The Titans need a strong running game to help make a sluggish offense with inexperienced receivers click.

2. Protect the cornerbacks. The Titans have seen what happens when their corners have been left in man coverage on good receivers (see Andre Woolfolk vs. Torry Holt or Chad Johnson vs. Pacman Jones). Against Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald of Arizona, the Titnas would be wise to rotate safety help two-deep as much as possible.

3. Make some hay. With Arizona, Oakland and Cleveland coming up before the bye, the Titans have their best chance to pick up some steam. Those teams have a combined four wins, and the Titans need to win against the Cardinals to build some momentum.

4. Be special. Tennessee
