December 03, 2007|From the Associated Press

NASHVILLE -- Vince Young, who sat out the previous Tennessee-Houston matchup Rob Bironas won with an NFL-record eight field goals, threw for 248 yards and two touchdowns in rallying the Titans to a 28-20 victory, ending a three-game skid.

Titans end Antwan Odom knocked Matt Schaub (dislocated shoulder) out of the game with a sack in the first quarter.

The Texans (5-7) lost to the Titans (7-5) for the 10th time in 12 games.

Young guided the Titans 63 yards and found an open Roydell Williams on a 43-yard touchdown pass, putting them up, 14-10. It was the Titans' first lead since beating Carolina, 20-7, on Nov. 4.

Young then completed all six passes for 40 yards and ran twice for 16 more in an 87-yard drive that he finished with an 11-yard toss to Justin Gage. Young finished the third quarter with a 147.2 passer rating, helping the Titans hold onto the ball for 10 minutes.
