Young Hurt In Titans Loss

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Tennessee lost Vince Young, then watched the game slip away, too. Matt Bryant's 43-yard field goal with 11 seconds remaining Sunday gave the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a 13-10 victory over the Titans . Tennessee had a five-game road winning streak halted after the 2006 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year limped off the field in the third quarter. Jeff Garcia threw a 69-yard touchdown pass to Joey Galloway less than five minutes after Young left the game. Garcia then led the Bucs (4-2) on the winning drive after the Titans (3-2) tied the score on LenDale White's 2-yard run with 1:17 left.

Tampa Bay, which rebounded from a lopsided loss to Super Bowl champion Indianapolis, has already matched its victory total for last season. The main reason is Garcia, the 37-year-old quarterback signed as a free agent in March. The three-time Pro Bowl selection completed 20 of 31 passes for 274 yards and still has not thrown an interception this season. He used completions of 14 yards to Galloway and 28 and 10 yards to Hilliard to move the Bucs into position for the winning field goal. Young was injured when he scrambled for a 2-yard gain and was pushed out of bounds by defensive tackle Jovan Haye midway through the third quarter. The Titans said the second-year quarterback had a quadriceps strain and his return was probable. But he never re-entered the game, and Tennessee relied on backup Kerry Collins. Collins made some clutch throws during a 13-play, 86-yard drive to tie the game, but the normally dependable Tennessee defense couldn't hold off Garcia.
