KANSAS CITY, Mo. Ryan Tannehill Jersey . -- The Titans were implementing a new offensive system under Ken Whisenhunt, a new defensive system under co-ordinator Ray Horton, and trying to make a whole bunch of new pieces fit. Things couldnt have gone much better in their regular-season debut. Jake Locker threw for 266 yards and two touchdowns, the Titans new-look defence picked off Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith three times, and Tennessee rolled to a 26-10 victory over the Chiefs on Sunday. "I dont want to sound arrogant," Locker said, "but I think we expected it to (go smoothly). We felt that way through minicamp, into fall camp and in the preseason. That was one of our expectations, that we were able to execute and we were going to be efficient on offence." Locker picked apart a Kansas City defence that lost Pro Bowl linebacker Derrick Johnson and starting defensive tackle Mike DeVito to Achilles injuries. He finished 22 of 33 while connecting with eight different players, including former Chiefs wide receiver Dexter McCluster. "Jake did great," Whisenhunt said. "All those things weve worked with, footwork-wise and technique-wise, and you saw it. Thats really exciting. But its just one game." Kendall Wright and Delanie Walker had TD catches for the Titans, and Ryan Succop was perfect on four field-goal attempts against the team that released him last weekend. "Theres no question this was a special day," Succop said. "It was an awesome day. Great to come back to Kansas City. Im very thankful the day went the way that it did." Smith, who signed a four-year, $68 million extension last weekend, was just 19 of 35 for 202 yards in a haphazard performance by a Kansas City offence weakened by suspensions. Leading wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was forced to miss the game following an arrest last November, and right tackle Donald Stephenson served the first game of his four-game suspension for violating the leagues policy on performance-enhancing substances. The Chiefs didnt reach the end zone until Anthony Fasanos TD catch in the fourth quarter. Running back Jamaal Charles, who is the Chiefs biggest game-breaker, was a non-factor. He carried seven times for 19 yards and had four catches for 15 yards. "All those things we did last year to win, we didnt do them today," Smith said. "We didnt execute, didnt execute in a lot of phases, especially offence." After Kansas City jumped out to a 3-0 lead, when Cairo Santos banged a 35-yard attempt off the right upright and through for the first field goal of his career, just about nothing went right. Santos missed a 47-yarder moments later and the Titans seized control. Locker led his team 62 yards for a go-ahead touchdown, an easy toss to Walker in the back of the end zone. Succop followed with a field goal later in the half for a 10-0 lead. Johnson went down with his Achilles injury just before the half, and DeVito was lost to a nearly identical injury on the first drive of the second half. Locker capped that drive with a short TD pass to Wright, who managed to contort his body just enough to touch the pylon as he was going out of bounds. The touchdown gave Tennessee a 17-3 lead and started a shower of boos from a crowd that had been full of optimism. "Those are guys who are kind of staples of their defence," Locker said. "They were in there almost every snap, especially Derrick. You understand thats going to change up their personnel a little bit. Yeah, you look at it and maybe understand where you can gain an advantage." It was an important opener for the injury-prone Locker. The Titans declined their fifth-year option on him in in the off-season, so the pressure is on Locker to perform this season. He certainly did against a Chiefs defence that was full of questions entering the season, and has even more after a pair of serious injuries to key defensive players. "I have a lot of respect for Coach Reid and this football team and these fans," Whisenhunt said. "We didnt do great all the time, but we did enough. Im very happy for that." Notes: Titans LB Zach Brown left with a shoulder injury. ... Jason McCourty had two interceptions for Tennessee. "Those were big for us," he said. "That last one sealed the game." ... McCluster ran for 29 yards and had one catch for 17 yards. ... Chiefs S Eric Berry had a career-high 14 tackles. ... Chiefs RT Jeff Allen left with a strained biceps. Cody Parkey Jersey .Cullen scored the go-ahead goal at 13:47 of the third period and Nashville beat the slumping Dallas Stars 3-2 on Thursday in a game that wasnt decided until the last shot of the night. Jason Taylor Jersey . -- C.J. Cron hit an RBI single on the first pitch he saw in the major leagues, doubled his second time up and hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the sixth inning to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 5-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday night. . So he and his Toronto FC teammates say they will have no problem getting up for their Amway Canadian Championship final against rival Montreal Impact, even if the result doesnt count toward Major League Soccer standings.KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- Lee Westwood saw his four-shot lead trimmed to just one on Saturday after a bogey at the final hole of the third round of the Malaysian Open. Westwood shot a 1-under 71 for a three-round total of 14-under 202 but is only one shot ahead of English compatriot Andy Sullivan, who had a 66 as he chases his first tour title. Frenchman Julien Quesne is another three shots back in third place after a 69. Westwood, who turns 41 next week, won the Malaysian Open in 1997 and is looking for a repeat to end a near two-year winless drought. For a third day in a row he birdied the opening hole of the Kuala Lumpur Golf Club course before dropping a shot with a three-putt bogey at the second. He added birdies at the fifth -- also for a third day in succession -- and at the par-3 12th before two-putting the final green for bogeyy after having to play his approach shot from the slope of a fairway bunker. Mark Duper Jersey. "It was tricky out there and I didnt play as well as I did the first two days and there was some tough flags out there," Westwood said. "I got a couple of bad breaks out there today but I am leading with a day to play, so I am quite happy with that." Italys Matteo Manassero celebrated his 21st birthday with his best round of the tournament, a 67 to sit in a tie for 14th at 6 under. Defending champion Kiradech Aphibarnrat was forced to pull out ahead of the third round because of inflammation of his tonsils. There was no sign of the hornets that attacked Pablo Larrazabal on the 14th hole during Fridays second round, forcing the Spaniard to jump into a water hazard. Larrazabal shot a 70 to sit tied for 23rd at 4 under. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
