TENNESSEE TITANS

Last Season: 6-10, 1-5 division
<br><br>
Playoffs: Missed the postseason
<br><br>
Stat Leaders: QB Jake Locker (2,176 YDS, 10 TDS, 11 INTS); RB Chris Johnson (1,243 YDS, 6 TDS); WR Nate Washington (746 YDS, 4 TDS) ; LB Akeem Ayers (104 TACKLES, 6 SACKS)
<br><br>
The Buzz: With few other options, coach Mike Munchak is putting all his support behind starting quarterback Jake Locker. Muchak is entering his third season the pressure is on to get Tennessee heading in the right direction. Locker had more interceptions than touchdowns last season. Orlando native Chris Johnson was once a fantasy football gem after rushing for 2,006 yards three years ago. Johnson is putting up respectable numbers, but he has struggled with a heavy workload and isn't likely to turn in another 2,000-yard rushing season. The Titans are hoping to get more out of top receivers Kenny Britt, Kendall Wright and Nate Washington. Former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who was the ringleader of the bounty scandal, could help the Titans' struggling defense.

Luck Factor: It will take an awful lot of luck for the Titans to post a winning record and Munchak to save his job.
