NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Titans returned to work Monday for a bonus day of practice as they begin game week preparations for Sunday’s game in Atlanta.

Players say they flushed Thursday’s disastrous 20-7 loss to the Jaguars after they watched the film on Friday. They understand that there is a lot to fix following a game in which the offense struggled, special teams had a costly turnover and they committed 10 penalties, but they believe all the problems are correctable.

“I don’t think it’s do or die (right now),” left guard Rodger Saffold said. “It’s a long season, we still have 13 games left.”

The Titans say they will use Monday’s bonus day to work on themselves and get an early look at the Falcons. It’s a critical game for them to bounce back.

After an impressive opening week victory in Cleveland, Tennessee has lost back-to-back games to Indianapolis and Jacksonville, falling to 1-2 with both losses to AFC South opponents.

The losses have raised questions about the play of quarterback Marcus Mariota, the offense in general and the improvement of the team under second year coach Mike Vrabel.

Those were just some of the issues we discussed with our Titans analyst Jonathan Hutton on the Electric Power Companies Sunday Sports Central. You can watch those segments in the video player above.
