Packers Lose to Titans

Brett Favre looks sharp and ready to roll into his 17th NFL season with some of his young teammates. For Vince Young and LenDale White, the future is now.

Young threw for a touchdown and ran for another for a second straight week, White added 77 total yards, and they helped the Tennessee Titans wrap up the preseason by beating Favre and the Green Bay Packers 30-14 in Nashville tonight.

Tennessee (3-1) wrapped up its first winning preseason since 2004. Coach Jeff Fisher used this game as his dress rehearsal for the Titans' season opener at Jacksonville, playing most of his starters into the third quarter.

Young was 11-of-16 for 96 yards, and White ran 15 times for 58 yards with a 19-yard reception. Rookie receiver Chris Davis added a 70-yard punt return for a TD, and Rob Bironas kicked field goals of 51, 33 and 46 yards.

Green Bay (2-2) missed a chance for its best preseason finish since 2004.

The Packers scratched 15 players, including receiver Donald Driver (foot) and both starting cornerbacks, Al Harris and Charles Woodson. What remained of the first-team defense left after one series, a three-and-out.

But Green Bay also had another running back injured.

Noah Herron, starting with Vernand Morency (knee) and rookie Brandon Jackson (concussion) out, hurt his knee after catching a 6-yard TD pass from Favre.
