The owner of the Tennessee Titans wants more of Vince Young. He's getting just that with the winless Titans switching from veteran Kerry Collins back to the 2006 Offensive Rookie of the Year.
Bet NFL Week 8
Coach Jeff Fisher announced the expected move Thursday after practice for the 0-6 Titans.
That means Young will start Sunday against Jacksonville (3-3), the team that helped send him to the bench in the 2008 opener by picking him off twice and spraining his knee. Collins started 20 of the 21 games since then.
Young has eight career interceptions against Jacksonville with only three touchdown passes. But he has won five of his last six starts, a stat that includes the end of the 2007 season.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com, the Titans are 3-point favorites against the Jaguars in Week 8. Of the 7,174 bets that have been currently placed on Sunday’s game, 51% favor the Jaguars +3 over the Titans.
