NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Mike Munchak is facing an early season test as the Titans' new coach.
He's preaching calm and not panic after a performance in which Tennessee could not have looked much more inept on offense.
Munchak said Monday that the Titans must get back to work coming off a 16-14 opening loss at Jacksonville. Titans were lucky to be as close as they were, the Jaguars dominated both time of possession and total yards. Nonetheless, the Titans did have the ball in the final minute with a chance to kick a winning field goal.
The challenge only stiffens as the Titans and Munchak must clean up mistakes on offense, eliminate the penalties and shore up the run defense by Sunday when they host the Baltimore Ravens in their home opener.
