Predicted Score: Titans 24, Falcons 14
Tennessee: The Titans are returning from their bye week to face a Falcons' squad coming off their first win of the season, beating the so-so Texans by 10 in Week 4. QB Vince Young continues to post mediocre passing numbers as the Titans main focus is running the ball with LenDale White and Chris Brown. Brown is averaging 5.8 yards per carry and could get healthy against a Falcons defense that gave up 4.1 yards per carry to Ron Dayne. Brown is much quicker and faster through the hole than Dayne so don't be surprised to see him break a long one. LenDale White, who is getting at least 15 touches per game, is a good play as well. Ignore all Titans receivers.
- Start: RB LenDale White, RB Chris Brown, Titans D/ST
- Consider: QB Vince Young, TE Bo Scaife
- Sit: WR Brandon Jones, TE Ben Troupe, WR Roydell Williams, WR Eric Moulds
Atlanta: The Falcons showed some spark last week getting their first win against the banged up Texans. The passing game seems to be on the mend with Harrington throwing for 2 scores each of the last two weeks but the rushing attack is lacking. Warrick Dunn rushed for a season high 62 yards against Houston and continues to receive more carries than Jerious Norwood at a 2-1 clip. Michael Jenkins and Roddy White are spot starters at best in this contest against the Titans-D, which is sure to give the Falcons a bigger challenge than their previous two opponents. (Houston, Carolina).
- Start: TE Alge Crumpler
- Consider: RB Warrick Dunn, RB Jerious Norwood, WR Roddy White, WR Michael Jenkins
- Sit: QB Joey Harrington, WR Joe Horn
