LP Field, Nashville, TN
Thornton's sack was his first with Tennessee and his first since Oct. 23, 2005, when he was with Indianapolis and sacked Carr while with Houston. ... Young's TD rushing was only his second this season and first since the season opener. With 110 yards passing, he topped 3,000 career passing in his 20th start. ... Young's TD marked the first time thsi season the Titans scored a TD on their first drive and only the second time they got any points on their opening possession. ... Only Arizona, Minnesota and San Diego have yet to visit LP Field. The Chargers visit on Dec. 9.
Defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth was the difference in the Titans' victory. Using a variety of moves, including raw power, a spin and various other counter attacks, Haynesworth spent a good portion of the game in the Panthers' backfield. The Panthers were unable to single-block Haynesworth and were forced to double up with center Justin Hartwig and a guard to try to contain him. Haynesworth not only posted three sacks, but also did a great job of controlling the line of scrimmage and plugging up the middle, which allowed Tennessee’s linebackers to flow freely and run to make plays. Keeping his pad level down and doing a great job of using his hands to keep blockers away from his body, Haynesworth showed why he is considered one of the premier defensive tackles in the league this year.
