Watching a win just makes the day so much better. We saw some of the things that haunted us earlier in the season in this game but were able to come up with the offense to make sure it did not matter. Chris Johnson had another unbelievable day with yards rushing and another yards receiving. I know we were all hoping for a bigger day rushing, but he needed 130 yards to stay on pace for 2,000, and he got it with 132.
Vince Young played another solid game going 17-25 for 210 yards and 1 touchdown and 1 interception. He also had a couple of nice plays with his legs to keep drives alive. He will face his biggest test of the year next week in Houston, but I predicted when we drafted him that he would never lose to the Texans. He hasn't, and I don't expect that to change this year.
The defense regressed a little bit giving up some big plays, but they were able to step up and score a couple of TDs late to put the game out of reach. How about Rod Hood?
Three in a row feels good. The toughest stretch of the remaining season is ahead, but for now let's enjoy another win!
