WHAT TO LOOK FOR ON MNF:  One more note to keep in mind for tonight's Monday Night Football game between the Titans and Jaguars…

CROWDED AT THE TOP:With one game remaining in Week 6, 12 NFL teams have at least a share of first place in their respective divisions, which is tied for the most in NFL history at this point in the season (12 in 2008).

A 13th team is almost certain to join the current crop of first-place teams tonight when the Jaguars host the Titans on Monday Night Football in an AFC South division matchup. Jacksonville and Tennessee are both 3-2, while Houston and Indianapolis each improved to 4-2 with wins yesterday.
