Last week, it was cornerback Aqib Talib and center Jeff Faine against Atlanta.

ESPN.com's Playoff Machine

ESPN AGS: Redskins over Titans

Rusty Smith or Kerry Collins, does it really matter? If the Titans make the playoffs, they'll do it with defense and special teams -- and even in an upset loss, those two units still came to play against Washington.
