NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The Tennessee Titans keep this up much longer, they're going to get a reputation as a big-play defense.

The kind offenses love to attack.

Only two NFL teams have allowed more points than Tennessee through two games, and the Titans already have given up 32 big plays of 10 yards or more in their winless start to this season. It's made reviewing game film a bit like a horror show for the defense.

Cornerback Alterraun Verner says it's very tough to watch film knowing when a player made a mistake. He says that makes a person not want to have that feeling again and work harder in practice to avoid making that mistake again.

Up next for the Titans (0-2) is Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions (1-1) on Sunday.
