QUOTE OF THE DAY
FS Jairus Byrd
On playing the Tennessee Titans:
“Any given Sunday anybody can beat you and the Titans are coming off of a big win against the Steelers so they are riding high. Last year they came in here and took one from us. We know what they are capable of doing and we are going to have to go out there and have one of our best games to beat them.”
