Titans Drop One To Bucs 13-10

Titans Drop One To Bucs 13-10

The Tennessee Titans dropped a very important game to the Buccaneers Sunday in Tampa. Along with the loss on the scoreboard Vince Young was unable to finish the game due to an injury.

The Titans came back from Tampa Bay looking to find out what the condition of their franchise quarterback might be for this weeks game. With the loss to the Buccaneers still stinging in their mind they have to look forward to getting ready for another road game against the Houston Texans.

 

            The defense for the Titans continued to play well against Tampa Bay by only allowing 30 yards rushing and 274 yards passing. The Titans also dominated the time of possession controlling the ball for 37:37 and only allowing the Buccaneers to hold on to the ball for 22:23.

            "They made a big play down the field to score seven with [Joey] Galloway. They made a play.  Other than that, they didn't really do too much to hurt us.  In the last little two-minute drive, Garcia did a great job of using his feet, getting out of the pocket, and breaking down our coverage a little bit because of his scrambling ability" Stated LB Keith Bulluck after the game.

            The loss drops the Titans to 3-2 on the season and searching to see how long Vince Young might be away from the playing field. Jeff Fisher commented on Young after the game" He has a quad strain.  We will evaluate it, and we will continue to evaluate.  He tried to stay [as] loose as he could in case we had an issue with Kerry [Collins]. At this point he will just be day-to-day.  It was not something that he could have played and played effectively with.  He did it before he got out of bounds.  He strained it on that one scramble.  As far as the game is concerned, we knew we were going to play a good football team, a very good defensive team.  Our plan going into this week was not to give up the big plays, and we gave up two big plays; Jeff [Garcia] made them.  You have to take your hat off to Jeff.   That was a great effort staying in there.  Every time I looked, he was on the ground.  He kept getting up, and he did what we hoped he wouldn't do and that was find a way to make a play.  I thought both defenses played well.  We had a chance.  We got back, tied it up [and] we had a chance.  Then [Jeff] found the receivers using his legs and they made the kick, so we move on."

            The game prep for the Texans has already started and the Titans will be looking to rebound after this tough loss.
