Titans Open Vs Pats, 1st Meeting Since 59-0 Rout

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Chris Johnson has been looking forward to playing New England for weeks -- and the 59-0 pounding the Patriots handed the Titans on a snowy day in October 2009 has nothing to do with his motivation.

Johnson says he's focused on the regular season and trying to bounce back from his worst season as a pro. Johnson was one of a few bright spots on that bleak Sunday, keeping his chase for 2,000 yards rushing on pace with 128. The loss marked the beginning of the end for Jeff Fisher, who lasted only one more season.

Now Mike Munchak is now the coach, and only 20 players remain from the largest loss since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970. Some block it out, others have painful memories of touchdowns and snow.
