    After four games, the Titans have a minus-six turnover ratio, which is tied for the second-worst in the league behind Kansas City.

    Turnovers obviously played a huge role in Sunday’s loss to Houston, as the Texans scored two touchdowns on interception returns and also recovered a fumble. The Titans didn’t force a turnover in the loss to Houston and have just two takeaways this season.

    “Yesterday after the first two drives, where they made some plays on us by throwing the football, I thought the defense really settled down and played pretty good the rest of the day,” Titans coach Mike Munchak said. “They didn’t make a lot of big plays on us.

    “(But) it’s just the fact we didn’t make any plays on them. (The Texans) didn’t make any mistakes on their side of the ball. They didn’t turn the ball over.”

    Titans defensive tackle Jurrell Casey said the defense has to find a way to produce some turnovers.

    “We have to get more turnovers to help our offense get shorter field position,” Casey said. “Everybody has to hustle to the ball, one guy wraps up and the next guy in has to come in and strip the ball.”
