NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher knows one
thing for sure about his offense: The Titans should be well rested
by the time they visit Jacksonville on Monday night.
The Titans improved to 3-2 and forged a four-way tie in the AFC
South with a big 34-27 road win over Dallas. But Tennessee needs to
figure out how to hold onto the ball a little longer, especially in
the second half, if they want to rest a defense that spends most of
the game on the field trying not to break.
Only four NFL teams hold the ball less per game than Tennessee,
and the Titans had the ball only eight minutes, 52 seconds in the
second half in Dallas. That's even less than in last week's loss.
Fisher credits defense and special teams with giving his offense
a short field.
