NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Titans have won three straight and are tied for the AFC's best start.
With the exception of a stumbling loss to open the season, it's the kind of start new coach Mike Munchak expected.
Munchak said Monday the Titans have positioned themselves back into the mix with their goal of winning the AFC South.
He says the Titans are back on track and excited by the prospect.
Few outside of Tennessee's headquarters expected much from this team with the franchise starting over this season with a new coach, new coordinators and two new quarterbacks along with the NFL lockout for good measure.
Now the Titans are 3-1, and even Chris Johnson finally is getting going with his first 100-yard rushing game after his contract holdout.
