When, where:
Today, 12:30 p.m., at Ford Field.
TV: Channel 4.
Last meeting: Titans won, 24-19, in 2004.
Of note: Despite holding double-digit leads in the past two games, the Lions (0-11) are still winless . . . Tennessee held the ball for just 19:30 in its 34-13 loss to the Jets Sunday . . . Titans QB Kerry Collins has thrown six touchdowns in the last three games, after a three-week stretch in which he didn't throw any . . . Tennessee is allowing 15 points per game, second in the NFL to the Steelers (14.5). Detroit (31.5) is last . . . Lions QB Daunte Culpepper (50.3 passer rating) has thrown for 432 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions since taking over the position three weeks ago. He will remain the starter, however, after Drew Stanton suffered a concussion against Tampa Bay. Detroit signed Drew Henson from the practice squad to serve as the backup quarterback today. Henson's last NFL appearance came on Thanksgiving Day four years ago, when he started for the Cowboys against Chicago.

When, where:
Today, 4:15 p.m., at Texas Stadium.
TV: Channel 25.
Last meeting: Seattle won, 21-20, in the 2006 NFC wild-card game.
Of note: Dallas CB Adam "Pacman" Jones resumed practicing Monday after being suspended by the NFL for the previous five games. He will sit out today before returning to action against the Steelers Dec. 7 . . . Cowboys QB Tony Romo threw for 341 yards and 3 touchdowns against the 49ers Sunday, despite playing with a splint on his broken pinkie. His 101.8 passer rating ranks third in the league . . . Dallas WR Terrell Owens had 213 receiving yards against the Niners, his most since 2000 . . . Against the Redskins Sunday, for the second week in a row, Seahawks QB Matt Hasselbeck threw an interception on the team's final possession to seal a loss.

When, where:
Tonight, 8:15, at Lincoln Financial Field.
TV: NFL Network.
Last meeting: Cardinals won, 27-21, in 2005.
Of note: With a win, the Cardinals will clinch their first division title since 1975. They can back into it if both Seattle and San Francisco lose . . . Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald caught the 400th pass of his career against the Giants Sunday, becoming the youngest player in NFL history to do so. Fitzgerald turned 25 in August . . . Arizona WR Anquan Boldin leads the league with 11 touchdown receptions . . . Cardinals QB Kurt Warner has thrown a touchdown in 19 consecutive games. His 102.4 passer rating is second in the NFL to San Diego's Philip Rivers (103.3) . . . The Cardinals boast the league's second-ranked offense, averaging 390.7 yards per game . . . Donovan McNabb has thrown five interceptions and just one touchdown in the last two games . . . Eagles RB Brian Westbrook (knee) and CB Asante Samuel (neck) are questionable.
