While most of the online sportsbooks were holding the Eagles vs. Titans line at -3, SBG Global had taken this one all the way down to Tennessee -1.5 by Saturday evening.  Action on the spread was even despite news that Vince Young had not practiced this week and was questionable for Sunday’s game.  Young suffered a knee and ankle injury in Monday night’s game against Jacksonville. 

"He did some things inside, and that's progress for us," Titans head coach Jeff Fisher said.

Part of the reason for the lack of line movement across the board overall is that Tennessee has an efficient backup in Kerry Collins.

"I'm ready to go. I've a good week of practice and I'm entirely comfortable with what we're doing game-plan wise," Collins said.

Both Tennessee and Philadelphia come into this game with 4-2 records.

Kevin Kolb was named the starting quarterback in place of the injured Michael Vick.  Last week Kolb was 23 of 29 for a season-high 326 yards and three touchdowns in the Eagles 31-17 win against Atlanta.  The Eagles will be without receiver DeSean Jackson, who suffered a concussion in last week’s game.
