Reduce Relevancy of TOC


I was wondering, how do I best go about reducing the relevancy score of a result that has a specific phrase in a field? Specifically I have a document broken down into different sections

    Table Of Contents
    Section 1
    Section 2

What I want to do is when I perform a search, I want any result that has a title of "Table of Contents" (ideally similar phrases as well) to not be as relevant as the other sections. I still want them to show up, but since they are likely to contain the same keywords (but really not be what the user is looking for) I want them to show up after other things.

The title exists in it's own property within the indexed document (i.e. myindex.mydocument.title)
