NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Tennessee Titans on Sunday will retire the # 1 jersey of quarterback Warren Moon.

Ceremonies will be held during halftime of the Tennessee game with the Dallas Cowboys.

Moon, who's the 4th leading passer in NFL history, earlier this year became the first black quarterback inducted in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
