The Tennessee Titans announced on Monday that quarterback Jake Locker will get the start in the team's Week 1 contest when they host the New England Patriots.

This will be the first regular season start for Locker, a second year pro out of the University of Washington, after he beat out veteran Matt Hasselbeck for the starting job.

In five games last year Locker completed 51.5 of his passes (34-for-66) while throwing for 542 yards and four touchdowns.
