The Titans play their first home game in a month on Sunday as they entertain Arizona.
 Not that Tennessee will enjoy home field advantage.
 They haven't won at L-P Field since September 29th, and beating the Cardinals won't be easy.
 The Titans got 28-points last week against Denver, but getting that many this Sunday might be tough. Arizona is 5th in the NFL in total defense, and they have 38 sacks.
Said Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick,"They will definitely heat you up. Come after you a little bit. They are able to create pressure with their front four or bringing five guys."
Added Titans head coach Mike Munchak, "You have to be smart how you tackle them because they are very good at what they do. They can make it miserable for quarterbacks like they did last week with the Rams. The Rams game got out of hand because of sacks, fumbles, and picks because of pressure."
  Both teams are on the playoff bubble, but the Cardinals are in better position with an 8-5 record.
Said Arizona head coach Bruce Arians,"We just want to get number nine. It's gong to be a really tough place to play. It'll be cold. Been to Nashville too many times, and they'll be more than ready."
  Cold crummy weather is expected at L-P field, so will that be a problem for a desert team like Arizona?
Said Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer, "Doesn't look like it will be below zero, which is cold. Everything else is good. I've been playing in cold weather a long time. I spent 9 years in the AFC North, where there are no warm games."
  With a 5-8 record, this might be the last chance for Titans to impress the home town fans.
Said safety Michael Griffin, "Come out. Come out and we are going to give it all we've got. You can clearly see we are not giving up."
Said defensive end Derrick Morgan, "Our guys aren't quitters. We're going to finish the season as if we had a winning record."
Said safety Bernard Pollard, "I've heard some fans say we have strung them along for so long, and we always let them down. I can't argue that. I can't. But come out. Support. Come have fun. If all else fails, I'll take a fine and hit somebody for you." (Laughter)
  Titans may have to raise their ticket prices with all the fines Pollard has accumulated this season. Kickoff Sunday is at 4:25pm.
