Wrap-up: Titans 29, Giants 10
By Paul Kuharsky
What it Means: A week after the Titans were overwhelmed by Pittsburgh, they bounced back and end up in good position in the AFC South at 2-1. They played tough defense and relied on the run game to beat the Giants, 29-10. When they stick with that recipe, they’re formidable.
What I Liked: Kenny Britt got more involved with a 13-yard touchdown catch, Vince Young played more of a game-manager role and Chris Johnson returned to familiar form with 32 carries, 125 rushing yards, and two touchdown.
Forcing Mistakes: Tennessee’s eight penalties for 80 yards weren’t good, but were more than offset by New York’s 11 penalties for 86 yards, which included four personal fouls. That suggests the Titans did well to walk away after the whistle while the Giants did not.
Unsung Heroes: Beyond blocking well for Johnson and the run game, the offensive line bounced back from a poor showing against Pittsburgh by allowing New York to record just one official hit on Young.
What’s next: The Titans host Denver at LP Field.
