NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Coming into this season, the Tennessee Titans had only two punters since 1998. Now they've gone through three, plus two long snappers, in as many games.

DENVER (AP) — A day after Tom Brady’s dud of a debut for Tampa Bay, Stephen Gostkowski failed to put all that Patriots pedigree to work in his first game with the Tennessee Titans.
Playing for a team other than the New England Patriots for the first time since entering the NFL in 2006 definitely feels a bit odd for kicker Stephen Gostkowski.

ATLANTA (AP) — Whenever he's ready to hang up his cleats, Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski's list of milestones should start with one word: consistency.
Only two players on the Patriots' 2018 roster — Gostkowski and Tom Brady — were around for each of their previous five Super Bowl appearances.
Sports fans love dynasties. And hate them, too.
That a team could be so dominant for a long period as the New England Patriots have been should be admirable. Their detractors point to scandals such as "Spygate" and the deflated footballs saga. Their supporters focus on Tom Brady's brilliance and a resilience that all great teams share.
Regardless, the facts are the Patriots are in their ninth Super Bowl since 2001 and have won five.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — New England tight end Rob Gronkowski said the Patriots would take the night to enjoy it. Safety Devin McCourty said it would be closer to just a few hours of celebration.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — More times than not, the sight of Rob Gronkowski approaching the end zone has signaled good things happening for the New England Patriots.
Yet there was the image of Gronkowski awkwardly crashing to the ground in a desperate attempt to prevent Kenyan Drake from crossing the goal line during Sunday's last-second 34-33 loss to the Dolphins .
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The Patriots are accustomed to making adjustments.
That was certainly their philosophy during their matchup with the Bills on Monday night.
Down to just two healthy running backs on the roster with leading rusher and rookie Sony Michel inactive with a knee injury, New England started receiver Cordarrelle Patterson in the backfield in a move done more out of necessity than by design.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Devin McCourty was pleased that the New England Patriots defense didn't have to play second fiddle to Tom Brady and Co. for once.
With the Patriots leaning more on Stephen Gostkowski's leg than Brady's arm against the Buffalo Bills on Monday night, McCourty stepped up and returned an interception 84 yards to secure a 25-6 victory.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The only thing that might hold back the Kansas City Chiefs this season is their defense.
That's because they haven't been able to hold back anybody.
While the Chiefs have earned plenty of attention for their record-setting offense, led by Patrick Mahomes and several skill-position studs, the defense has struggled six weeks into the season.
The unit is allowing a league-high 468.2 yards and more than 28 points per game.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — When the going gets tough, Tom Brady goes to Rob Gronkowski.
The Patriots tight end had only three catches against the Chiefs on Sunday night, but he had big gains on each of the team's final two drives to help New England beat previously undefeated Kansas City 43-40.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady needed everything he had to fend off Patrick Mahomes — including his legs.
Stephen Gostkowski hit a 28-yard field goal as time expired , and the New England Patriots beat the Kansas City Chiefs 43-40 on Sunday night after blowing a big halftime lead.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Young quarterbacks have always had a tough time winning in Gillette Stadium during the Bill Belichick and Tom Brady era.
Add Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes to the list.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Patrick Mahomes has been so good this season it's easy to forget he is still learning his way around the NFL.
He was handed another lesson on Sunday night.
Mahomes passed for 352 yards and four touchdowns, but he also threw two first-half interceptions that proved to be quite costly when the Kansas City Chiefs lost 43-40 to the New England Patriots on Stephen Gostkowski's 28-yard field goal as time expired.
Justin Tucker has a strong, accurate leg, and dance moves like Drake.
That combination is good enough to make the Baltimore Ravens' two-time All-Pro kicker the league's No. 1 player at his position in The Associated Press positional rankings released Friday.
Tucker received six of 11 first-place votes in a 10-points-to-one-point system to edge New England's Stephen Gostkowski, 89-88. Greg Zuerlein of the Los Angeles Rams finished two points behind in the tight race.
