TENNESSEE: The Titans are encouraged by what they deemed a productive offseason for RB Chris Johnson. They mix a lot of zone plays in for Johnson, though their line is more built for man blocking. They use a lot of two-tight end sets and still use a fullback to try and open things up for him. Johnson takes about 70 percent of the reps and is often asked to find yards between the tackles. Javon Ringer will come in on every third or fourth series. The Titans often go into the red zone with the idea of running it, with Johnson taking a lot of touches. But they get easily frustrated after one busted play and ended up one of the league's most pass-heavy red zone teams. The Titans were so pass-happy for most of last season that they looked like classic Air Coryell under offensive coordinator Chris Palmer. They get the ball downfield aggressively, something that didn't change whether it was Matt Hasselbeck or Jake Locker under center. Kenny Britt is the first look, with Nate Washington not far behind. Jared Cook is often used to stretch the middle of the field. Rookie Kendall Wright was brought in to provide a deep threat in the slot, though he may be used underneath as well for spacing purposes. The Titans also reintroduced the screen game last year, giving them another way to get Johnson the ball. They'll often try to get the ball outside to a receiver near the goal line rather than using a tight end over the middle. Defensive line coach Jim Washburn and DE Jason Babin leaving before last season was a big reason Tennessee finished with the second-fewest sacks in the NFL in 2011. The secondary took a hit this year with the departure of CB Cortland Finnegan and contract dispute with franchise player S Michael Griffin. A lot is going to be asked of LB Colin McCarthy, who was a monster after moving into the starting lineup in the middle of last season, recording 50 solo tackles over eight games as a rookie. Tennessee will be looking for both projected starting cornerbacks, Jason McCourty and Alterraun Verner, to help fill the void created by the loss of Finnegan. McCourty led defensive backs in solo tackles in 2011, and opposing quarterbacks may target him even more often now that he'll be matched up with many opposing No. 1 WRs. Verner has 102 total tackles (86 solo) in 15 career starts and would seem to be the more attractive target for opposing quarterbacks to pick on.
JACKSONVILLE: There doesn't figure to be a lot of change to the Jaguars' running game. New head coach Mike Mularkey has always piloted run-heavy offenses, and he retained veteran offensive line coach Andy Heck. They'll continue to use a zone-blocking scheme and run a lot of stretch plays with Maurice Jones-Drew. Mularkey has always used a one-back system, so Jones-Drew should continue to carry a huge workload with Rashad Jennings picking up the scraps. Mularkey always skewed run-heavy in the red zone, and it makes sense with this personnel. It will be almost all Jones-Drew in the red zone. With Blaine Gabbert, Mularkey will be trying to build his confidence with high-percentage throws. Gabbert has a poor sense of the pocket, but he was especially uncomfortable turning his back in play-action situations, something he won't do as much of this season. He'll also have simplified reads and quicker throws. Rookie Justin Blackmon is a perfect fit in this offense as a catch-and-run guy who had a similar role at Oklahoma State. He and Laurent Robinson should be 1 and 1A in targets. Mularkey, like departed offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter, uses tight ends frequently in the passing game, which is good news for Marcedes Lewis. Mularkey has never run a lot of screen passes, but they'll find a way to utilize Jones-Drew. When they do throw in the red zone, Lewis and Blackmon are expected to be the usual targets. The Jags saw an uptick in every category on the defensive end last season, as the defense was by far the team's strongest unit. DL Jeremy Mincey was paid handsomely (4 years, $27.2M) after having nearly signed with Chicago. He has racked up an impressive 12 sacks and 81 total tackles in 24 games as a starter. LB Paul Posluszny posted big tackle numbers in his first season with the Jags, the question is whether he can remain healthy enough to string together two straight 16-game seasons for the first time in his career. LB Daryl Smith played primarily strong side for the first time in 2011 and was his typically solid self. Safety Dawan Landry doesn't provide much in terms of pass coverage, but he's a strong tackler.

*Titans-Jaguars Preview* ========================


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 take advantage of a Jaguars team that's coming off a wild overtime defeat.

Tennessee trails wild-card leaders Pittsburgh and Indianapolis by two games, but coach Mike Munchak believes his team has a chance to make a seemingly improbable run to the postseason.

"It seems to happen every year in the league," Munchak said. "This is our opportunity, our chance to be that team. That's how they have to believe it, that's how they have to work."

Coming off their bye, the Titans (4-6) will try to string some wins together after snapping a two-game skid with a 37-3 victory at Miami on Nov. 11. It was the team's most lopsided win since a 47-7 romp over St. Louis on Dec. 13, 2009.

The Titans could be in for another big day offensively against a Jacksonville defense that has allowed 31.3 points during its seven-game losing streak.

Having three-time Pro Bowler Chris Johnson back to his old self should help. Johnson, who averaged 42.0 yards and 2.9 per carry in his first five games, has run for 130.4 per game on 6.7 per touch to help the Titans win three of their last five.

He's likely to find more room to run against the Jaguars (1-9), who allow 137.3 yards per game on the ground - 29th in the NFL.

Tennessee also should have a nearly 100 percent Locker under center after he returned from a five-game absence and completed 9 of 21 passes for 122 yards and two touchdowns against the Dolphins in his first career road win.

Locker, who hadn't played since injuring his left shoulder against the Texans on Sept. 30, should be confident facing a Jacksonville secondary that allowed five touchdowns and 527 passing yards -- tied for the second most in NFL history -- to Houston's Matt Schaub in a 43-37 overtime loss on Sunday.

"It doesn't feel any better or worse than it did going into the Miami game," Locker said of his shoulder. "It feels strong and I expect it to be that way the rest of the year."

While the Titans have their QB back, the Jaguars lost starter Blaine Gabbert for the season when he suffered a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder in the first quarter against the Texans.

Gabbert, who has started all 10 games for Jacksonville, was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

Even before coach Mike Mularkey knew the severity of Gabbert's injury, he'd already named Chad Henne the starter after the former second-round pick stepped in and completed 16 of 33 passes for 354 yards and four touchdowns in Houston.

"He just came out and made a lot of things happen, and that's what we're looking for," Mularkey said. "Just to try to find the production that's going to help us win the game."

Henne, who will make his fifth appearance this season, has a career 13-18 record as a starter with 30 touchdowns and 35 interceptions -- all during his four previous seasons with Miami.

Justin Blackmon emerged as Henne's favorite target and looks to build off his breakout effort on Sunday. The No. 5 overall pick reeled in seven catches for 236 yards and a touchdown against Houston -- nearly matching his season total of 250 receiving yards entering the contest.

The Jaguars, trying to avoid the first eight-game losing streak in franchise history, have a chance to continue last week's success against a Tennessee defense that has allowed 30 points or more in seven of its 10 games.

Jacksonville, though, is still without two key weapons. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew (foot) is likely to miss at least one more game while receiver Laurent Robinson was placed on IR after sustaining his fourth concussion of the season.

The teams split their 2011 meetings, each winning at home.
