NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The Tennessee Titans will go as far this season as Jake Locker takes them.
That's been the conventional wisdom since owner Bud Adams approved spending more than $100 million to shore up the defense, better protect the young quarterback and to give Locker more help on offense.
Now Locker is coming off arguably his best game in just his 14th start. Locker, Peyton Manning and Alex Smith are the only starting quarterbacks yet to be intercepted in their first three games.
Behind Locker, the Titans are off to an unexpected 2-1 start with the New York Jets (2-1) up next on Sunday.
Coach Mike Munchak believes it has helped his third-year quarterback knowing he was the starter from Day 1 this year and that Locker has gotten better each game.
