NASHVILLE, Tennessee — Tennessee coordinator Ray Horton says the Titans' defense should look totally different Sunday in Kansas City than in the preseason.

Still, he cautions that the Titans remain a work in progress.

The Titans are switching to a 3-4 defense, something Horton says could take several weeks to refine. If the preseason was any indication, that assessment is correct. Tennessee allowed touchdowns on the opening drive of all four preseason games and did not intercept a single pass or force one fumble.

Horton says he doesn't want to put a timetable but the process typically takes about eight weeks for defenders to stop worrying about their responsibilities and concentrate on the opponent.

The Titans feature only two new starters in linebacker Wesley Woodyard and cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson.
