    White isn't going to be playing. Just hope for a safe and clean game, this game matters less than what most are going to freak out about.

    TITANS (0-2) VS FALCONS (0-2)

    When: 7 p.m., Saturday.

    Where: LP Field.

    TV: WKRN Channel 2

    Radio: 104.5-FM

    National Anthem: Katie Armiger.

    Halftime: Pee Wee Football.

    Charitable drive: LP Pencil Box School Supply Drive.

    Last week: Titans lost to the Bengals, 27-19, Falcons lost to Ravens, 27-23.

    Last regular season meeting: November 20, 2011 – Falcons 23, Titans 17

    Titans-Falcons series: Titans lead, 7-6.

    Total points: Titans 306, Falcons 321.

    What to expect from the Titans: Quarterback Jake Locker and the starters are expected to play roughly 45 snaps, or into the third quarter, before back-up quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and the rest of the team’s back-ups begin entering the contest. The Titans won’t give much away, but they’ll try and do more things on both sides of the ball to prepare for the regular season opener. Whether that means catching footballs or making tackles remains to be seen — they didn’t do either very well against the Bengals last week. The Titans will also continue to evaluate players battling for roster spots, as Alterraun Verner and Tommie Campbell will get work with the first team at cornerback. Rob Turner is scheduled to start at center for the Titans, who will be without a number of starters.

    What to expect from the Falcons: Like the Titans, the Falcons also plan to play their starters into the third quarter, with quarterback Matt Ryan leading the show early. Unlike the Titans, Atlanta’s first-teamers looked good last week, jumping out to a 20-7 against the Ravens before seeing the reserves blow the lead. The starters also left the team’s Week 1 vs. Cincinnati with a lead before an eventual loss. The Falcons will be without receiver Roddy White (ankle) and starting linebacker Stephen Nicholas (quad), but tight end Tony Gonzalez is expected to make his preseason debut.

    The real question about this game is whether the Falcons will be eating popcorn or peanuts off of our DBs

    A CJ TD would make me pretty satisfied as well. Not as much as a 40+ yarder to Britt with some nice YAC though.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Schwenke tear it up, would be good to know he's developing.

    Their TEs probably could go for 100+ yds receiving in this game if they just really wanted to wear their TEs out.
