    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- What's being billed as Rematch Weekend in the NFL comes with some history that should give the Titans, as well as the Steelers and Panthers, an additional reason to feel confident.</p> <p>According to Elias Sports Bureau, this is the third time in the past five seasons that all four NFL divisional playoff games will be played between teams that met during the regular season. Since the merger, that has happened four times: following the 1991, 1997, 2004, and 2005 seasons.</p> <p>Since 2002, excluding divisional rematches, the team that won the regular-season matchup went 12-3 in the rematch when the teams met for the second time in the divisional playoffs.</p> <p> <table border="0" align="center"> <tr> <td> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="500" bgcolor="#c0c0c0"> <tr> <td> <table border="0" cellspacing="1" width="100%"> <tr> <td colspan="5" bgcolor="#196120"><font face="Verdana" size="1" color="#ffffff"><strong>Rematches in the Divisional Round of Playoffs</strong> </font></td> </tr> <tr> <td bgcolor="#d6d6d6"><font face="Verdana" size="1"><strong>Regular-season Game<br /> </strong></font></td> <td align="center" bgcolor="#d6d6d6"><font face="Verdana" size="1"><strong>Regular-season winner<br /> </strong></font></td> <td align="center" bgcolor="#d6d6d6"><font face="Verdana" size="1"><strong>Won Div.

    If we get beat while still playing 100% then i'll be ok with the the effort and being the AFC South Champs. , if Titans play like crap and get beat i wont feel sorry for them..this is their shot and only they can make it happen.
