    This is a comeback week for quarterbacks. Steve McNair comes back every week too injured to practice; he just keeps Tennessee winning. He returned to practice in the team's bye week.

    In the Titans' earlier 31-23 win over Pittsburgh, he threw for 257 yards, two scores and was never sacked. The Steelers routinely give up 30 points thanks to a leaky, banged up secondary. Tennessee's safeties will punish Hines Ward, Plaxico Burress and Antwaan Randle El. Titans coach Jeff Fisher is 8-2 over Bill Cowher.
