Jeff Fisher and the Tennessee Titans had some good times together, and darn near won a Super Bowl. But good times come to an end, and Fisher left Nashville three seasons ago.
Now Fisher is in charge in St. Louis, and for the first time he'll lead his Rams against his former team, as 3-5 St. Louis hosts 3-4 Tennessee Sunday afternoon (1 pm ET, CBS).
The Rams, with Kellen Clemens at QB in place of the injured Sam Bradford, just got held out of the end zone in a 14-9 loss at home to Seattle Monday night.
