    Favre threw two touchdown passes, Leon Washington ran for two scores and the Jets routed the Titans 34-13 on Sunday, snapping the 13-game regular-season winning streak by the NFL's last undefeated team. The Jets (8-3) came in atop the AFC East after a victory over New England at Foxborough and they have won five straight for the first time since October 2004 and seven of their last eight. The win also pulled them within two of Tennessee (10-1) with five to play in the race for home-field advantage through the playoffs.

    As a Titan diehard the humble pie I've been eating this afternoon has been neceesary.

    Sadly, the team was due to lay an egg, and they picked a good and hungry team to do it to. The Jets were better than TEN in every single category, minus penalties. We had that one. :cowboy1:

    I'm going to the Lions game, hopefully they're pissed as hell and take it out on the Lions.

    Ditto, Thank you Jets! I didn't think they would go undefeated but it's still nice to get the 1st loss for the Titans. They had and have a weak schedule the rest of the way(minus their last 3 games;)) and finally found a team that was hotter than they were.


    J-E-T-S JETS!

    First time in 29 regular season weeks that there hasn't been an undefeated team in the standings.

    I think the Titans got exposed this weekend.

    Run up the score quickly, and they become one dimensional with a very average QB throwing to below average WRs.

    White and Johnson comined for less than 15 touches, and they weren't very successful in those 15 touches they did manage.

    Kerry Collins isn't going to win the close ones if he's all they've got.

    Titans better figure out what they want to do from here on out.

    What a great Thanksgiving it would be if the Lions defeated the Evil and Godless Titans.

    This is what catches my eye. Why would you go away from your 'bread and butter' so early? Running the ball is what they do best. I understand they were behind early, but damn.

    Eh, it's good they lost. Fat Al took a leg in the back of the head too, so it was a good day. Although, the Cowbabies did win. :thinking:

    You obviously did not watch the game ...

    A 10-3 lead at half is hardly running up the score quickly.

    The run was not working and the passes should have opened up the run but to many dropped balls made it worthless. You can not run two consecutive screen passes that hit our RBs in the hands and get dropped and expect to move the ball at all.

    We got beat because the players head's were not in the game.

    I'm sure he meant jumping to a lead early......The strength of the Titans is the ground game and when you get a lead on the Titans they become one dimensional as with most teams when they get behind early in the game.
    I didn't watch the game but happy with the outcome.:pirate:

    They had a 12th man in black and white yesterday as well. But I agree even without the PI calls I still think we lose.

    If Farve plays like that in the playoffs I do not see any AFC team having a chance.

    Favre and the Jets came in motivated, and ran the ball almost at will over your D.

    Refs, schmefs. No excuses. No pissin' and moanin'.You won't get any sympathy for the refs on this board. (See the facemask penalty against Cleveland that resulted in an offensive holding against the Texans yesterday).


    You are right though, if the Jets get hot with Favre at the helm, they may cause some damage.
