Story of the Game
Vince Young escaped the Madden jinx and had a great overall performance, passing for two touchdowns and running for 22 yards. He left the game late in second quarter with an apparent injury which, thank goodness, turned out to be cramps. The offensive line deserves praise for giving Young plenty of time to survey the field and make effective throws.
The Other Story of the Game
“Mr. Monday Night,” Keith Bulluck, had three interceptions and the Titans defense turned the Superdome into the House of Pain. Reggie Bush scored two rushing touchdowns but was held to 15 yards on seven carries.
What on earth has happened to Drew Brees?
Total Team Effort
The Houston Rockets’ center Hakeem Olajuwon was fond of using the phrase “total team effort” to describe his club’s performance during victories. This was an excellent game by the Titans. The passing game and special teams showed explosiveness. The defense continues to play championship football.
However, it wasn’t a perfect game. Vince Young threw a interception into heavy traffic and Rob Bironas missed a 27-yard field goal. Not much to complain about.
Who would have expected Tennessee to be 2-1 with two road victories?
Expect to see Titans players celebrating, vacationing and visiting their alma maters. During week five, Tennessee will attempt to win its first home game against the Atlanta Falcons.
