RB Chris Brown led the Titans with a career day past the Jacksonville Jaguars 13-10. The performance was against one of the NFL's toughest rush defenses.

   Chris Brown made his case for the Titans today on who should be the starting running back this season with a career high 175 yard rushing total. The performance was sorely needed on offense where second year QB Vince Young found himself struggling all day. 

   Young had 11/18 for 78 yards and 1 interception on the day and 22 yards rushing on 11 attempts. Young couldn't get in sync with the rest of the offense, but the rushing attack with both Brown and White helped carry the Titans to the win.

   The Titans also had an excellent performance from the defense led by the interior of the defensive line with Albert Haynesworth and Tony Brown. The Jaguars were held to only 72 yards on the ground and 196 passing. The effort by the defense along with the excellent performance in the rushing game helped the Titans past the Jags and helped to set up the home opener next week against the Colts.
