The encouraging start to the preseason schedule left Buccaneers players feeling positive about the direction of the team.

"There's always room for improvement, but we went out and executed what we've been practicing,'' said defensive tackle Roy Miller. "It's been a physical camp and what I like best is seeing things we're doing in practice being applied to a game. That Lavonte David already looks like a heck of a linebacker. I'm just pleased to see this kid grow and I'm excited to see more of him.''

David was one of several players who impressed during the first game.

The Titans are coming off a 27-17 loss to Seattle.
