Young injures thumb, Titans lose 3rd straight, Wash 19-16

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Washington (5-5) snapped a two-game skid and bounced back from a 59-28 loss to Philadelphia on Monday night. The win came on a day when at least seven Redskins went to the sideline with injuries, including Clinton Portis with a re-injured groin.

Gano's winner was his fourth field goal of the game. He also missed two - a 51-yarder to end the first half and a 47-yard attempt at the end of regulation that fell short.

With rookie Rusty Smith replacing Young, the Titans (5-5) lost their third straight game. Smith drove Tennessee to a field goal and a 16-13 lead in the fourth quarter. But they had to punt after winning the toss in overtime and never got the ball back.

The Titans played so poorly the home fans seemed to spend more time booing than cheering.
