Titans ready to extend Texans' misery on field

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Houston Texans can fix a lot of problems with their visit to Tennessee.
Winning gives a big emotional lift to fans dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Ike. It evens their record and ends a 6-game skid against the team they replaced in Houston.
Pardon the Titans if their sympathy ends tomorrow at kickoff. The Titans have had their own drama thanks to Houston native Vince Young.
The quarterback who is a Texas Longhorns legend will watch as veteran Kerry Collins takes tomorrow's snaps. Collins has been given the reins while Young heals both his sprained knee and his attitude.
Not that Young's status is a big issue with this team. Tennessee is sitting atop the AFC South and trying to win its first three games for only the third time in franchise history and the first since 1999. That's when the Titans reached their lone Super Bowl.
People who say that they don't know what to get me for my birthday have obviously never been to a liquor store
