Jaguars / Titans: Matchups to Watch

Here are some of the matchups to watch when the Jaguars travel to Tennessee:

Jaguars LG Vince Manuwai vs. Titans DL Albert Haynesworth.
This will be a tough test for Manuwai. Haynesworth has become one of the most dominating defensive linemen in the game.

Jaguars LT Khalif Barnes vs. Titans RE Kyle VandenBosch.
Barnes didn't play the first half of the Saints game because he was disciplined for being late to work last Saturday morning. He'll be back in the starting lineup against the Titans and will have a major task in stopping VandenBosch.

Jaguars defensive front seven vs. Titans' running game.
In the first game, the Titans often spread the Jaguars out with four- and three-receiver sets and then ran out of them. The Jaguars were often caught out of position.

Titans LT Michael Roos vs. Jaguars DE Paul Spicer.
Spicer is hot with five sacks in his last five games and three forced fumbles in his last four games. Roos has done well keeping big names from making impact plays this season.

Titans WR Eric Moulds vs. Jaguars CB Rashean Mathis.
Moulds hasn't had a catch in his last three games.

Titans pass rush vs. Jaguars QB.
The Titans have 12 sacks in the last two weeks and will be looking to knock off Gray or knock out Garrard (if he plays).
