NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Adam "Pacman" Jones jumped up and down, waving his arms, encouraging the fans who stuck around to stand and cheer their Tennessee Titans.

|After giving up 21 points in the first half, the Titans shored up their defense and found a hero as Vince Young (pictured) led his team to 24 second-half points. Young was 15-of-22 in the second half with no interceptions and caught the run-conscious Giants defense flat-footed. Using the shotgun formation that he was so familiar with at Texas almost exclusively in the second half, Young scored on all four of Tennessee's final possessions. The Giants didn't help their cause with Eli Manning throwing two interceptions in the second half.|
The Giants were only the third team in NFL history to lose a game in which it led by 21 points or more with 10 minutes or less to play.
