Munchak: Playing Lions Could Get Ugly Real Fast

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The winless Tennessee Titans can only hope their recipe for success against NFC teams is strong enough to help them break out of their season-opening funk.

With Detroit coming to town Sunday, coach Mike Munchak knows one thing for sure: It could get ugly real fast if his Titans aren't ready.

Playing the NFC has been a way for Tennessee to stack up lots of wins since realignment in 2002, going 28-12. Only the Patriots (35-6) and Steelers (28-11-1) have been better at interconference games.

The Titans went 4-0 against the NFC North in 2008, a year the Lions went 0-16 and Tennessee was an NFL-best 13-3. These Titans (0-2) have been outscored 72-23.

Munchak credits past success to studying well, which is crucial against Detroit (1-1).
