The Titans' victory came despite continued inconsistent play by quarterback Vince Young, who made a few big plays but failed to capitalize on several scoring chances despite playing with good field position against the Packers' defensive reserves.

Young stood on the Titans' sideline with a bandage on his right hand in the second half. A Titans spokesman said Young banged his hand during the game.

After a rough night for both of the Packers' rookie backup quarterbacks, Matt Flynn drove the Packers into Titans territory in the final 2 minutes and threw a 22-yard touchdown to Jake Allen to cut Tennessee's lead to two with no time left on the clock.

The Packers had a chance to tie the game on a 2-point conversion, but receiver Johnny Quinn was out of bounds when he caught Flynn's pass in the corner of the end zone.

Young drove the Titans inside the Packers' 10-yard line four times in the first half, but Tennessee came away with only three field goals. Young led the Titans' No. 1 offense to only two field goals in Tennessee's three previous preseason games.

Young was 13-for-27 for 134 yards passing and ran three times for 57 yards Thursday. The Titans did manage to score a touchdown in the second quarter - on a 40-yard touchdown run by Vincent Fuller off a fake punt.

Kerry Collins replaced Young after halftime, immediately leading the Titans on a 14-play, 80-yard drive that ended with a 1-yard touchdown run by rookie Chris Johnson.

Rodgers threw a 68-yard touchdown pass to Greg Jennings just after the opening kickoff.

"We're definitely ready," Rodgers said at halftime. "We had a good performance last week. One-and-done this week."

As Rodgers continues to calm fans' concerns about his ability to replace Brett Favre, the Packers' most pressing quarterback concern is who will become Rodgers' backup.

Rookie quarterbacks Brian Brohm and Flynn both struggled against the Titans' No. 1 defense after Rodgers left the game. The two alternated in a string of three-and-out series in the first half, and both lost fumbles under a heavy pass rush.

Flynn rebounded to throw a touchdown pass to Brett Swain in the third quarter after an interception by Tyrone Culver.

And with the Packers trailing by eight with just over 4 minutes left in the fourth quarter, Brohm threw an apparent 27-yard touchdown pass to Allen on fourth-and-15. But the catch was ruled no good on an instant replay.

The Packers played without cornerbacks Charles Woodson and Al Harris, linebacker A.J. Hawk, defensive tackle Ryan Pickett, safety Atari Bigby and center Scott Wells because of nagging injuries.

The Titans were without linebackers Keith Bulluck and David Thornton.
