That sound you heard was once againt the cash register going off in Albert Haynesworth's head. The defense is just terrible without him in the middle. They gave up 166 rushing yards on 26 plays. In case you cannot do the math, that is 6.4 yards per rushing play, which is really bad.
The defense was bad against the pass as well. Jay Cutler was 16 of 21 for 200 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Titans couldn't get any pressure on him. Teams have gone back to blocking Kyle Vanden Bosch with at least 2 guys every play. The rest of the line cannot mount a pass rush.
Vince Young played well. He had his first career 300 yard passing game. People have been down on Vince all season. The loss tonight was not his fault at all. The receivers let him down. Justin Gage is the only guy Vince can count on. That is pretty sad.
This hurts the Titans playoffs chances, but it is not the end of the world. They are now in a tie with the Cleveland Browns for the 2nd wild card spot.
I will have a more in-depth recap tomorrow.
