NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Call it looking on the bright side or being an optimist. Then again, Chris Johnson has a point.

Surely, the Tennessee Titans' rushing offense can only get better since it's already the worst in the NFL.

The man who led the NFL in yards rushing during his first three seasons now is tied for 34th in the league this season after signing a $53.5 million extension with $30 million guaranteed. The Titans rank last in the NFL yet again, averaging 68.9 yards per carry, and Johnson watched backup Javon Ringer from the sideline in the fourth quarter last week.

Johnson says a new week is a new opportunity in a situation thatcan do nothing except improve.

The Titans (4-3) host Cincinnati (5-2) on Sunday.
