    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>The Titans wrapped up three bye week practices Friday and headed off to a relaxing weekend to find out just who they will be playing at LP Field on Jan. 10.</p> <p>If Baltimore wins in Miami Sunday, it will be the Ravens. If the Dolphins win that game, then Tennessee will draw the winner of Saturday's Indianapolis at San Diego game.</p> <p>In a group chat with <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=734" shape="rect" target="_new">Kerry Collins</a> this week, I asked him what one thing he'd most like the offense to polish up before that game.</p> <p>"I think we've been inconsistent on third downs at times this year," he said. "And in the playoffs you need to be able to convert third downs. Everything else has been more consistent. I think if there is anything we want to make sure we are good at, it's third downs."</p> <p>The Titans were just 24th in the NFL on third down during the regular season, converting at a 36.1 percent rate. In their last two meaningful games, a loss at Houston and a win over Pittsburgh, the number was even worse -- just five conversions in 27 chances for 18.5 percent.</p>
