NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Observed in the locker room after the Tennessee Titans' 26-17 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs at LP Field:

Expectations: Last week’s locker room was somber after a win because of Jake Locker's injury. This week’s was sober because the Titans have graduated to a place where they expect to win a game against a team like the Chiefs, even if Tennessee is bad for long stretches. It's good to have those expectations, and maybe it’ll have a positive impact somewhere down the road, but this loss was the difference between 3-2 and 4-1. Gigantic.

Still struggling: Kenny Britt continues to struggle. They gave him more chances in this game and he caught one of six balls thrown his direction. One of the misses came on a third-and-2 with the Titans trying to hold on to a 17-13 lead. That’s’ the one offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said upset him the most. As for Britt going forward, Loggains said: “We have to reassess everything at this point.”

Minty fresh: I had a good, solo conversation with center Rob Turner after the game, primarily about the call against Moise Fokou that was instrumental on the Chiefs' drive that put them ahead for good. (More to come on that.) Turner was brushing his teeth at his locker and I thought he might ask for a second, but he talked right through it, excused himself to spit in a nearby garbage can and kept right on going. He and his guard help had a tough time with defensive tackle Dontari Poe, who has seven tackles and a sack and is a handful for anyone these days.
