The last time these two teams met, Jeff Fisher's mentor, Mike Ditka, was the Saints' head coach! Tennessee gave the student the win over the teacher, 24-21 in a 1999 regular season game at The SuperDome. Needless to say, a lot has changed since then, and Jim Haslett brings in a team favored by many to win the NFC South. Former Ole Miss running back Duece McAllister heads a running game ranked near the top of the league, and the Titans defensive "front four" will have their hands full all day. QB Aaron Brooks has a "Tennessee" connection in the passing game, former Vol Donte Stallworth. The Titans are sure to test the young defense of the Saints, and the "Air" attack of Steve McNair will see plenty of action, with Derrick Mason and Drew Bennett serving as his prime targets. If it comes down to the kicking game deciding the results, you've an opportunity to see two of the best place kickers in the NFL - Tennessee's Joe Nedney and New Orleans' John Carney.
