Eagles-Titans Nuggets

Here are some Eagles-Titans nuggets to get you ready for football this afternoon in Nashville.

The Eagles lead the all-time series over the Titans 6-3, but the Titans have won the last three meetings. The Eagles, however, have won three of the past four games they've played on the road in this series.

Head coach Andy Reid has never beaten Tennessee, and is 0-3 lifetime against Titans head coach Jeff Fisher. In fact, Tennessee is one of three teams Andy Reid has not defeated, Indianapolis and Philadelphia being the other two.

The last time these two teams squared off, the Titans won convincingly in Philadelphia, 31-13, and tore quarterback Donovan McNabb's ACL in the process. The Titans also won the last meeting between these teams in Nashville, winning 27-24 after a late score by running back Eddie George on opening day in 2002.
