[Tennessee at Green Bay,


9 p.m.]



The last time the Packers lost their first two home games of the season.


Green Bay's home record when Brett Favre records a passer rating of 100 or above. It's a battle of banged-up quarterbacks and disappointing teams, as Brett Favre and Green Bay (1-3) host Steve McNair and Tennessee (1-3). Both quarterbacks are coming off injuries, and both teams desperately need a win.

Favre suffered a mild concussion last week against the Giants. He practiced this week starting on Wednesday, and his NFL-record streak of 193 straight regular season starts is most likely not in jeopardy. McNair suffered a severely bruised sternum Sept. 26 against Jacksonville and sat out last week's loss to the Chargers. He practiced this week and likely will play tomorrow.

The Packers are smarting on defense after allowing 245 rushing yards to the Giants last week, the most they have allowed in a single game since 1983. The Titans will look to exploit this weakness with running back Chris Brown, whose 408 rushing yards ranks sixth in the league. He also is averaging 5.1 yards per carry, which ranks second among NFL players with at least 50 carries.

Quarterback Steve McNair, front, is expected to be healthy enough to put Billy Volek back on Tennessee's bench.
