Quick Take: Cardinals-Titans

In Brief

» Last meeting: David Macklin returned an interception 60 yards for a touchdown as Arizona handled Tennessee, 20-10, on Oct. 23, 2005.
» Streaks: The Cardinals have won five of the eight all-time meetings.
» Last week: Arizona held on for a 21-13 victory at St. Louis. ... Tennessee went into Houston and left with a 20-17 win.

Keep your eye on ...Vince Young's rebirth: The Titans are 4-0 since making Young the starting quarterback. In fact, He is 8-0 in his last eight regular-season starts. He seems to be playing with more maturity this season, and he is back to being the scrambling playmaker that made him the third overall pick in the 2006 draft.

Cortland Finnegan's impact: Few cornerbacks in the league can contend with Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald, but Finnegan is a physical defender that will battle Fitzgerald to the end. The Cardinals are not the same when their biggest offensive weapon is held in check, and it is up to Finnegan to accomplish that difficult feat.

Arizona's improving rushing attack: As rookie Beanie Wells has started to find his way, the Cardinals' running game has picked up. Arizona remains a passing team, but with Wells and Tim Hightower showing the ability to break some big runs at key times, opponents now have to respect the ground game.
