    Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- We're Kerry Collins heavy today, we admit it right out front.

    When there is good stuff to share, we've got to share.

    The Titans looked at Collins going head to head Sunday against Brett Favre and came up with some great stuff. Here's their note on the two QBs:

    Jets quarterback Brett Favre and Titans quarterback Kerry Collins have passed for a combined total of 100,364 yards. Favre is the NFL's all-time leading passer with 63,892 yards, while Collins ranks 14th in league history at 36,472 yards.

    This week's game will mark only the third time in NFL history that a pair of quarterbacks start a regular season game with a combined passing total of more than 100,000 yards.

    The other previous occasions occurred in 1998 when John Elway (Denver Broncos) and Dan Marino (Miami Dolphins) faced each other and in 2007 when Favre (Green Bay Packers) and Vinny Testaverde (Carolina Panthers) met.

    The 100,364 passing yards by Favre and Collins amounts to more than 57 miles.
