NFL Week 3: Titans @ Giants

Last season the Tennessee Titans started off the season in the worst way possible as they lost the first six games of the year, but after Titans head coach Jeff Fisher decided to bench veteran quarterback Kerry Collins in favor of Vince Young, the team was able to turn it around and win eight of the next ten games.

Not only was Vince Young able to get back to form in the last ten games of last season, but Titans running back Chris Johnson quickly turned into arguably the best back in the league has he rushed for 2,006 yards and finished with 16 total touchdowns.

Needless to say, things were looking up for the Tennessee Titans once again and there were high hopes for this up and coming team heading into this season.

After Week 1, it looked like business as usual for the Titans as both Vince Young (154 yards passing, two touchdowns, 30 yards rushing) and Chris Johnson (150 total yards, two touchdowns) had big days against the Oakland Raiders on their way to a 38-13 victory. Unfortunately, the success didn’t last as just a week later the Pittsburgh Steelers defense put a pounding on Vince Young and company which led to a 19-11.

Not only were the Titans dominated by the rival Steelers, but Young was once again benched in favor of Collins after the former Texas standout threw two interceptions and was rendered helpless against the Pittsburgh pass rush.

Fortunately, Collins had some success against the Steelers defense, but not enough as the Titans still fell short.

Heading into Week 3, Vince Young will have the starting job under center once again and should have a good chance to prove to head coach Jeff Fisher that he is still the right man for the job as the Tennessee Titans will be going up against the New York Giants.

Much like the Titans, the Giants are coming off a disappointing loss in which they stood no chance against the potent offense of Peyton Manning’s Indianapolis Colts and lost their second game of the season 38-14.

In Week 3, Eli Manning and company will be looking to get back on track against the Tennessee Titans, but I just can’t see that happening as I believe running back Chris Johnson will have a big day against the Giants vulnerable secondary.

The big question in this game will be whether or not Vince Young can rebound from his disappointing performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but even though the New York Giants will be taking notes about how the Pittsburgh Steelers were able to get the best of Vince Young and company, I believe the Titans will cruise to victory in this matchup and get back on track moving forward.

As of right now, the New York Giants are favored to win this Week 3 showdown with a -3 point spread, but taking the Tennessee Titans sounds like a solid be in my opinion.
