QUOTE OF THE DAY
Head Coach Chan Gailey
On the play of Titans RB Chris Johnson and his play of late:
I wish he would have waited a couple for weeks on that. He played extremely well. They blocked well last week. Things seem to be coming together in their running game. It had been a while for them. That’s a huge challenge for us. It’s something that we said coming into the season, we’ve got to stop the run. It’ll be a challenge for us.
