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 Nov. 19 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.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.

Munchak says the break is something the Titans need both physically and mentally.
