Keep your eye on ...
Chad Ocho Cinco: In Week 1, the league's decision not to allow Ocho Cinco to appear on his jersey made more noise than Ocho Cinco's performance on the field. No. 85 had just a single reception, only the eighth time in his career he has been held to one catch or fewer. In the last meeting against Tennessee, Ocho Cinco posted a career-high 12 receptions and tied a career high with his three TDs.

Titans QB Kerry Collins: Starting QB Vince Young is expected to be out two to four weeks with a sprained left knee, so Collins, a 14-year veteran, will make his fifth start in a Titans uniform. Collins ranks third among active QBs with 34,782 passing yards.

Bengals QB Carson Palmer: Palmer had one of his worst games in recent memory last week, leading an offense that could only muster three points while completing just 10 of 25 passes for 99 yards. It's up to Palmer to fix the tempo of the offense and make better use of his Pro Bowl receivers.
