NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Titans safety Michael Griffin says Tennessee's defense did a "pretty good job" in their big tuneup for the regular season. He is being a bit modest.
The Titans finished their third preseason game with four sacks, helped force five turnovers, had eight tackles for loss and 10 hits on quarterbacks. Their performance had coach Mike Munchak using words like "awesome" and "dominated" and a little worried for Arizona's quarterbacks in a 32-27 win Thursday night.
Now if the Titans can carry this stifling defense into the regular season, they will have accomplished their biggest offseason mission of creating a pass rush after having only 28 sacks last season.
Griffin says the main thing going into the season is being more consistent and creating turnovers.
