  Jaguars-Titans Preview NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Starting 2-0 is an opportunity the Tennessee Titans simply haven't seized in a very long time.Sure, they've won some season openers only to lose the next week. This franchise hasn't won its first two games since 2008, and that's also the most recent time it won the AFC South. The biggest lesson learned in the Titans' run to the AFC championship game was the importance of starting the postseason at home.

Former Tennessee Titans standout Albert Haynesworth was arrested in southeast Tennessee on Monday.
