Negativity swirled around Vince Young all week like the winds of the Meadowlands.
Coming off one of his worst performances, every part of his game was questioned, from his level of preparedness after missing meetings, to his abilities under pressure, to his maturity as a fifth-year pro quarterback. In Week 2, it seemed like his entire season was on the brink.
For at least a game, however, Young answered his critics as the Titans beat the Giants 29-10 on Sunday at New Meadowlands Stadium.
Young wasn't asked to do much. He threw only four passes in the first half and finished the game 10-of-16 for 118 yards and a touchdown. But after throwing two interceptions, fumbling twice and getting benched in a loss to the Steelers, he played a key role in this victory by being mistake-free.
