Monday Night Football’s impact on the AFC South

Will Chris Johnson, Titans will be looking up or down in the AFC South standings at the end of Monday night?

Who will emerge victorious from the Titans-Jaguars battle in Jacksonville under the bright lights?

The team that’s triumphant will be atop the AFC South; however, there won’t be much separation from top to bottom, as separation is hard to come by in this skin-tight division

The Tennessee Titans are tied for last place in the AFC South. The Tennessee Titans are also tied for first place in the AFC South.

Not often you see a division play out like that. After six weeks in the regular season, the AFC South has become as cluttered as a house on an episode of “Hoarders.”

Tennessee can thank up and down starts from the rest of the AFC South for that. Both the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts have looked like Super Bowl contenders at one point in the season. Yet, have also looked like the Buffalo Bills (Well, maybe not that far).

However, this is the situation the Titans face themselves with. A Monday Night showdown for first place in the division; and last.

What will it take for the Titans to move into the top spot and defeat Jacksonville in prime-time? Establishing the running game and saving face in pass coverage. The Titans have been burned in the secondary enough to warrant more than two losses. Nonetheless, they have kept offenses out of the endzone and kept themselves in games.

To stop Maurice-Jones Drew, the Titans will need to stuff the box more than that delicious $5 buck box at Taco Bell. When doing this, it will leave the secondary vulnerable to David Garrard and the Jags receivers.

The crowd atop the AFC South is packed, along with the crowd at the bottom. This game will go a long way as to what will happen the rest of the season, and could put a whopping one game between the last place teams and the division leaders.
