At 1-3, the Titans haven't yet had success they're hoping for and after two losses by a combined three points, the inability to come away with a win is wearing on Brian Orakpo.

The veteran linebacker said he's trying not to take the frustration home from the office with him.

"I know it is hard,'' Orakpo said, per the team's official website. "You try to shake it off when you get home with the family.

"Me personally, I hate losing. (I'm a) grouch, in a bad mood. But wife will tell you, I've gotten a lot better. Before I used to always be in a rut and don't want to eat and that kind of stuff. It has gotten better. It's a work in progress."

Despite the losing record, Orakpo said he feels like the Titans are close to putting it all together.

The Titans will try to put Orakpo in a better mood when they go for their second win Sunday at home against the Miami Dolphins.
