Quick Take: Young, White top Packers

It was over when ...
The Titans decided to play their starters for the entire first half. The Titans starters were able to move the ball pretty well against the Packers' second-team defense, going up 14-7 in the second quarter. The Titans' reserves were better, tacking on 16 additional points in the second half to cruise to a victory.

Game ball
Brett Favre completed 8-of-10 passes for 82 yards and a touchdown -- a 6-yard strike to Noah Herron. Vince Young threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score. But LenDale White gets the game ball for the devestating block on Arti Bigby to spring White on his touchdown. White also had a 21-yard rushing attempt on fourth-and-1 and finished with 58 rushing yards on 15 carries. Of course, Young probably asked White where that was on fourth-and-1 in the Rose Bowl.

Key stat
The Packers were without primary running backs Vernand Morency and rookie Brandon Jackson, and the team rushed for only 24 yards in the first half and 61 yards for the game. Making matters worse, the team's most significant injury was sustained by Herron, who suffered a sprained knee.

Noteworthy
White had his left hand taped in the second quarter, but quickly returned to action.
