It doesn't help things that the Titans had their second stringers on the field after the Vikings subbed in their third team and continued to move the ball.
Defensive problems have been the norm for the Titans this preseason, but this week, the Titans saw a rare stumble on offense. Mettenberger threw a lot of sharp passes, but sacks and a forced fumble, not to mention some penalties, negated their progress.
The big story of the game was Antonio Andrews. Andrews rattled off impressive run after impressive run, ending the game with 13 carries for 78 yards, and that's without a 19 yard run that was taken back via a holding penalty.
In the end, the Titans managed only a field goal, while the Vikings scored a touchdown and four field goals. It wasn't the Titans' best game, but without any starters playing on either team, it doesn't tell us much about what will happen Week 1.
Score: Titans 3, Vikings 19
