NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Titans' approach to sacking quarterbacks really hasn't changed in about 12 years. Stock up on high-energy, aggressive guys who never stop chasing the ball and turn them loose.
Well, it's still early, but the Titans seem to have answered all those questions about how they could get to the quarterback after letting their top pass rusher leave in free agency. Tennessee leads the NFL with 22 sacks - most by this franchise through the first five games since the 1979 season.
The Titans (3-2) are getting production from across the defense too. Nine different players have at least one sack as they prepare to play Jacksonville (3-2) on Monday night.
End Dave Ball, who has 4 1/2 sacks, says depth is a big key.
