Titans working to start games better, fix mistakes

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints both have opened preseason games by driving the field for touchdowns against the Tennessee Titans.

Not with Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees on the field, but their backups.

It's causing flashbacks to the Titans' struggles in the recent past, not the stingy, physical unit Tennessee wants with new defensive coordinator Ray Horton.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Saturday the Titans had communication and technique errors on the opening drive in a 31-24 loss to the Saints. They also missed some tackles as well in allowing the Saints to drive 80 yards. Whisenhunt wasn't happy with the number of deep balls allowed as well.

Whisenhunt says they addressed some of those after the opening drive, but have to do a better job starting games.
