Packers' run inspiring Titans in playoff chase

(AP) - The Tennessee Titans are taking inspiration from the Green Bay Packers of a season ago in their improbable bid for the AFC's final wild-card spot.

Like Green Bay a year ago, the Titans (8-7) are trying to win their final two games to reach the playoffs while needing plenty help from other teams.

Turns out first-year coach Mike Munchak used the Packers last week as an example of doing just that en route to winning the Super Bowl. Munchak said Monday players like to hear how people in similar circumstances fared.

His Titans are heading to Houston (10-5) to win Sunday in the only piece of the puzzle they control. Munchak says then they can sit back and see if 1 of 3 needed scenarios fall into place.
