In November 2003, Tennessee erased a 21-point first-quarter deficit as quarterbacks Steve McNair and Billy Volek combined for three touchdowns in a 38-31 win over Atlanta.
The Falcons can jump back into the NFC South race with a win. Tennessee, meanwhile, has to keep winning if it wants to have any chance of catching the 4-0 Colts in the NFC South. A home loss to the 1-3 Falcons would set back any momentum the Titans have from their pre-bye week thrashing of the Saints.
Atlanta linebacker Michael Boley vs. Tennessee quarterback Vince Young. Boley, who leads the Falcons with 31 tackles, will probably need to continue his strong play if Atlanta expects to slow down Young. While Young has woked hard on his passing game -- he has completed 63 percent of his passes this season -- his main weapon remains his scrambling ability. He tends to break many of his big runs to the right side, and it will be up to Boley to help contain perhaps the best dual threat in the NFL.
