Titans Defense Rolls Over Raiders

The Tennessee Titans are back in a big way and its really doesn't have much to do with Vince Young so far this year. Off to their best start since 2003, the Titans' defense has been outstanding, allowing just 17 points per game.  Those are upper tier NFL numbers.

Young returned to the starting lineup after missing last week with a pulled thigh muscle but he was not very effective with just 26 passing yards Sunday against the Raiders. Only 3 first downs in the first half, but the offense breaks through in the 3rd quarter on a 24 yard touchdown run from Chris Henry to make it 10-7 Titans

The defense harrassed Daunte Culpepper all day long and did not allow Oakland a touchdown. LenDale White is gaining some steam in the backfield he had a career high 133 yards rushing for Tennessee. The Titans grind out a 13-9 win to improve to 5-2.
