Led by the feet of Chris Johnson and Vince Young, the Tennessee Titans are a rarity in 2010: A football team that runs the ball more often than it passes; only five such teams exist in the NFL this year. This Monday, though, the Titans face a Jacksonville team with one of the worst pass defenses in football -- the Jaguars have allowed more 20-yard completions, touchdown passes and yards per attempt than any other team in the league. Should the Titans stick to their game plan and run at the Jaguars, or should they switch things up and try to exploit Jacksonville's biggest weakness?
