Highlights, lowlights of Titans' 7-9 season

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Best Game: The Titans routed the Jets 38-13 on Sept. 29 for a 3-1 start looking like the playoff team owner Bud Adams wanted spending more than $100 million.

Worst Game: The Titans had four turnovers becoming the first team to lose to the Jacksonville Jaguars 29-27 on Nov. 10. The game was even more costly as Jake Locker hurt his right foot, knocking him out of the final seven games.

Best Play: Rookie Justin Hunter's first career reception for a 34-yard touchdown. His catch with 15 seconds left Sept. 22 beat San Diego 20-17.

Worst Play: Returner Darius Reynaud's indecision on the season's opening kickoff leading to a safety in Pittsburgh.

Biggest Surprise: Jurrell Casey and his career-high 10 ½ sacks. With a year left, Casey will be a top target for an extension this offseason.

Biggest Disappointment: Kenny Britt simply disappeared in a contract year. He started the season dropping nearly as many passes as he caught with nearly as many penalties. He went six weeks without catching even a single pass, became a healthy scratch in the final month and will not be back.

What's Next: President and CEO Tommy Smith must decide if Mike Munchak stays as coach. If he does, Gregg Williams might be promoted to defensive coordinator. Then the Titans must decide is Locker still their quarterback after missing 14 of his first 32 starts because of injury. Right tackle and middle linebacker also positions of need.
