Complacency and overconfidence are among the few things that petrify Jaguars coach Tom Coughlin. He found the perfect solution to that mind-set yesterday when the Tennessee Titans earned their way to Jacksonville for the AFC title game. Tennessee defeated Indianapolis, 19-16, yesterday to set up a meeting Sunday (Channel 3, 12:35 p.m.) with the Jaguars (15-2), whose only two losses this season came to the Titans. The coach figures that will be enough to get his team back to business after it scored more than a point per minute in a 62-7 playoff victory over Miami on Saturday.

NFL owners have no play clock on the realignment issue. Good thing. They decided yesterday to once again punt on realignment and will play for better field position. So, as expected, the expansion Carolina Panthers will join the NFC West and the Jacksonville Jaguars will join the AFC Central for the 1995 season. There is still a slim chance that some of the NFL's 30 teams could change divisions for the 1996 season. Commissioner Paul Tagliabue announced at the end of the league's fall meeting at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare that a 10-member committee has been appointed to come up with, yes, even more realignment proposals to be considered by the league owners at their annual meeting in Phoenix next March.

The New York Giants finally got their pass-catching tight end by signing free agent Pete Mitchell, who started every game for the Jacksonville Jaguars last season. Mitchell, who has 166 catches in his four NFL seasons, will complement starter Howard Cross, who is primarily a blocker. Cross had 13 of the 16 receptions by Giants tight ends last season, while Mitchell caught 38 balls by himself. Mitchell, who played at Boston College, was originally designated a transition player by the Jaguars, meaning they had the right to match any offer.

What could be worse than playing the Jacksonville Jaguars at home? Playing them with a healthy Mark Brunnel at quarterback. That's what the Eagles (2-3) will face when the take on the Jaguars (4-1) at Alltel Stadium this Sunday at 1 p.m. Yesterday, Brunnel led the Jaguars to a 21-13 victory over the visiting Cincinnati Bengals (1-4) and did something that - for him - was fairly incredible. He ran. And, for the first time since tearing ligaments in his right knee during the preseason, Brunnel didn't give it a second thought.

SOUL DEFENSIVE lineman Uriah Grant was 11 years old when his dad walked into the virtual lion's den. It was 2000 and they were in Detroit. His father, Uriah Grant Sr., was about to fight Thomas "Hit Man" Hearns, one of the great multiweight champions of the latter part of the 20th century. Though both boxers were in the twilights of their careers, Hearns was still a legend in the Motor City. "I remember the fans booing my dad," said Grant, recalling the bout in which Hearns was forced to retire in the third round with an ankle injury.

The Eagles named Dwayne Joseph director of pro scouting and promoted Louis Clark to senior director of pro personnel Wednesday, two big changes to the organization's revamped scouting staff under Ed Marynowitz. Although the titles are different, the two share similar responsibilities and both report directly to Marynowitz, the vice president of player personnel. Joseph comes from the Chicago Bears and replaces Rick Mueller, who was not retained after the draft. Clark had been a pro scout with the team since 2013.

The most significant of Chip Kelly's 19 wins as Eagles coach came on a Sunday night last December, when the Eagles clinched the NFC East over the Dallas Cowboys in a game that cemented the team's turnaround in Kelly's first season in Philadelphia. One December later, the Eagles are again playing the Cowboys in a Sunday prime-time game. And though the winner will not clinch the division, it will take over first place with only two games remaining. "This game will kind of be like last year's game in Dallas," right tackle Lane Johnson said.

TWO WEEKS ago West Catholic was triumphant in a 41-0 rout over Conwell Egan. On Saturday night the concept of deja vu was in full effect as West Catholic again thrashed Conwell-Egan, 54-0, in the Catholic League AA semifinals at Cardinal O'Hara High. On a crisp windy night, each gust seemed to knock every loose ball into West Catholic's hands, as the Burrs recovered two onside kicks, a botched punt and a fumble for a touchdown on the final play of the game, en route to 54 unanswered points.

Fletcher Cox and Mychal Kendricks first met in April 2012 during a predraft visit to Tennessee. They took a limousine together to the Nashville airport. They were not the most compatible pair of 21-year-olds to share a 20-minute ride. Cox is from Yazoo City, Miss.; went to college at Mississippi State; and likes to spend his free time taking his ATVs "mud-riding. " Those who know Cox describe him as a "big ol' country boy. " Kendricks grew up in Fresno, Calif.; went to the University of California; and collects hats and shoes.

Ever since the Eagles acquired Darren Sproles, coach Chip Kelly touted his rushing - not just his receiving and returning. When Sproles expressed excitement about Kelly's offense, he mentioned that he would be used as a rusher. So it was not necessarily a surprise when Sproles was used in the rushing game in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. But Sproles' 11 carries were more than he has logged in all but four of his 123 career regular-season games. "Sproles as a running back?"

ONCE UPON a time, it was enough just to go to a stadium to watch a game. But that notion is as outmoded as the rotary telephone. Today, it's all about the "game-day experience. " To that end, your Philadelphia Eagles spent the offseason completing a two-year, $125 million improvement project at 11-year-old Lincoln Financial Field. Some of the money went to adding 1,600 seats in three of the stadium's four corners and constructing bridges connecting the upper concourse. In addition, 1,300 new video screens were placed throughout the Iggles' South Philly nest, as well as larger video monitors in several other locations in and outside the Linc.

One season after starting the same five offensive linemen in every game, the Eagles are likely to be without two starters when they visit Indianapolis on Monday night. Pro Bowl guard Evan Mathis left Sunday's 34-17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars with a knee injury. He will miss an extended period after an MRI exam Monday revealed a medial collateral ligament sprain, according to league sources. The injury typically takes four to eight weeks for recovery, which means Mathis is likely to return this season.

PAT SHURMUR said that when the Eagles went into halftime down 17 points and looking lifeless, "the message was, 'Let's go put a fish in the box. Let's get a score, and then get it going.' " Several large, shiny fish had wriggled off the offensive coordinator's hook in the course of the worst half of football Nick Foles has ever played as an Eagle; last season's Pro Bowl quarterback turned the ball over three times in the first 20 minutes, one...

Nick Foles has been handed the keys to the fastest offense in football, and it's his job not to drive it into a brick wall. If you were watching the first half of the Eagles' first game of this long-anticipated NFL season, you probably did not think he was doing his job very well. Nowhere was the only place the third-year quarterback was taking the Eagles fast in the first 30 minutes Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. After committing just four turnovers - two fumbles and two interceptions - in 11 games he started or played most of last season, he had three - two fumbles and an interception - on the first six possessions of the new season.
