Titans barely alive
NASHVILLE — The Titans are breathing a big sigh of relief, and not because their slim playoff hopes are alive for another week.
They finally won again.
Kerry Collins threw for two touchdowns and 237 yards and Chris Johnson ran for a TD and 130 yards as the Titans snapped a six-game skid by beating Houston.
Most of the attention coming in was on Texans receiver Andre Johnson and Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan after they brawled three weeks ago in Houston's 20-0 win. This time the only scuffle came between a couple of linemen as Tennessee took control from the start, scoring on its first three drives for a 21-0 lead after one quarter.
