NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee coach Mike Munchak wants the Titans to rest up as much as possible now that they're finally getting a break.

Munchak put his team through a light workout Monday, then gave them the rest of the week off. The Titans aren't due back at work until , next Monday when Munchak plans to put them through a practice in preparation for a visit to Jacksonville (1-8).

This is the latest bye for this franchise since the open week went into effect in 1990, and Munchak said he prefers the bye at the midpoint of the season.

Still, the Titans (4-6) can rest easy.

A week after being put on notice by the owner, they responded with their biggest win of the season - beating Miami 37-3.
