NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Defensive coordinator Jerry Gray knows his Titans have a big problem and hopes they're embarrassed enough to fix it.

Quickly.

The Titans have given up an NFL-worst 151 points through the first month, 20 more than the next closest team. They are giving up an average 37.7 points per game. That's a pace of 604 points, which would shatter the league record for most points allowed in a season of 533 by the 1981 Baltimore Colts.

Gray said Thursday the young Titans can't give up touchdowns as soon as they get off the bus. The Titans have been outscored 41-13 in the first quarter and each opponent has scored either on the first or second possession.

The Titans (1-3) visit Minnesota (3-1) on Sunday.
