NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The Tennessee Titans know only too well the importance of starting the season on a winning note.

The Titans remember how their 1-4 start a year ago put them into a hole they never dug out from en route to a 6-10 record.

The challenge is a schedule that has Tennessee opening on the road Sunday at Pittsburgh followed by a trip to Houston. They finally play at home Sept. 22 against San Diego.

Cornerback Alterraun Verner says a winning start is really crucial with this opener setting the momentum for the rest of the season. He says it's must-win for the Titans to take a step toward contending for a playoff berth.

The Titans believe the difference will be an infusion of experience and talent with 20 new players.
