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.

In Indianapolis, Cody Parkey had some stuff. He was with the Colts last month during training camp, vying with Adam Vinatieri for a spot on the roster, and his stuff filled a single suitcase. Clothes. Toothpaste. Hairbrush. The basics. That's how it is when you're an undrafted rookie placekicker. You travel light and hope for the best. Then the Eagles acquired Parkey in the trade with the Colts because their kicker, Alex Henery, had become the one thing no kicker who wants to keep his job can become: unreliable.

By the time the second half of the Eagles' 31-21 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers started on Thursday night, Nick Foles was wearing a baseball cap and studying the game on a tablet. His evening was complete. It was the same for the rest of the starters. Coach Chip Kelly took his top players out after their two best quarters this month. Preseason games can be unconvincing and deceiving, but they provide glimpses on the way to the regular season. And the outlook of Eagles fans may have understandably improved from alarmed (after the preseason opener)

The Union made a major executive hire when they named Tim McDermott the club's new chief business officer on Wednesday. McDermott will have responsibility for overseeing the team's business operation, including working closely with the new USL team, Bethlehem Steel FC, along with the Philadelphia Union Academy. He is a former Eagles employee and the brother of Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott. So where does that leave Dave Rowan, who assumed day-to-day business operations in the interim as chief revenue officer after former chief executive officer and operating partner Nick Sakiewicz was fired in early October?

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.

New Eagle Stefen Wisniewski isn't worried about winning a starting spot on the offensive line in June. It's by September that he hopes to be in his familiar position. Wieniewski signed a one-year deal in the offseason with the Eagles. He has started all 77 games in a five-year NFL career. A second-round pick of Oakland in 2011, Wisniewski, 27, played his first four seasons with the Raiders and last year with the Jacksonville Jaguars. "I haven't been a backup since I have been in this league, and I don't intend to be one now," Wisniewski said after a workout this week.

When he arrived at Yankee Stadium with his Penn State teammates for last year's Pinstripe Bowl, Chris Godwin had shown some potential as a first-year wide receiver, one of seven freshmen to start a game during the season. But promise turned to performance that balmy day in the Bronx when Godwin broke out with seven catches for 140 yards, opening the scoring for the Nittany Lions with a 72-yard touchdown pass from Christian Hackenberg and sparking the team to a 31-30 overtime win over Boston College.

The Eagles found their third quarterback Sunday by claiming Stephen Morris off waivers from the Jacksonville Jaguars. Morris will fill the 53d spot on the roster and take the role that coach Chip Kelly did not think Tim Tebow was good enough to occupy. Morris, 23, was an undrafted rookie from Miami in 2014. He spent last season on the Jaguars' practice squad. Morris continued with the Jaguars during the summer. He went 23 of 42 for 242 yards and one touchdown in three preseason games.

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?"
