NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- There is a sense of relief among Titans players and running through LP Field.
Eight minutes remain but a 30-13 lead feels both unfamiliar and safe. Jacksonville was moving the ball well when David Garrard overthrew Mike Sims-Walker and Cortland Finnegan ended up with a pick. The Titans punted it back pretty quickly, but the Jags faced a long field and got nowhere. Now can Tennessee burn some clock.
Can the Titans and Nashville exhale?
Soon, barring something crazy.
One other element that’s been big here: New blood beyond Vince Young.
