    Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky DETROIT - If you need a reason beyond the Titans' 10-1 record and the Lions' 0-11 to like Tennessee's chances this morning, consider Jeff Fisher's recent success against the NFC.

    The Titans have the second best interconference record over the last three seasons:

    New England, 10-0
    Tennessee, 9-2
    Dallas, 8-2
    Indianapolis, 8-3
    Baltimore, 7-3
    Jacksonville, 7-3

    Tennessee has already knocked off the other three NFC North teams this season.

    The losses were last year at Tampa Bay and in 2006 to Dallas.

    Fisher has always talked about how his players are willing to do the extra work to prepare for an unfamiliar opponent. A lot of those opponents have seemed a bit surprised at the Titans' physicality once the game starts.
