NASHVILLE, Tenn.- After a month of training camp, four preseason games, and a slew of roster cuts, the Titans turn the page to the regular season and now have one week to prepare for their season opener against defending AFC Champion New England.

The Titans finished the preseason 3-and-1 after rallying to beat the Saints 10-6 on Thursday night. Now the team will try to carry over that momentum into games that really count.

Head Coach Mike Munchak says there's an excitement in the locker room heading into his second season.

"You're excited; everything's good, but I think that it will start growing. And that's a good thing. I like to see the excitement build from now, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. I like to see the excitement build to what we'll do on Sunday," said Munchak.

The Titans want their preseason performance to carry over now that all the games count. Tennessee gave up the fewest quarterback sacks, led the NFL with eight interceptions and topped the AFC in fewest points allowed. Darius Reynaud, the replacement for former Pro Bowl returner Marc Mariani, led the AFC on punt returns.

Now everyone's record is 0-0, and the New England Patriots will be a completely different challenge in the opener.  Coach Mike Munchak said Saturday that the production is something he hopes they can build off of, using a confidence built in the team's approach and individual among players. He says they had success in a lot of areas that were concerns after last season.
