    <p><em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em></p> <p>NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Doug Kern of ESPN Stats and Analysis watched the Steelers-Titans game with an eye on the numbers and provided a niceÂ*breakdown of Kerry Collins' performance.<br clear="none" /> <br clear="none" /> The Titans trailed in the game only once, after Pittsburgh scored early in the second half. Collins then engineered a 79-yard touchdown drive to give them the lead back for good. The first ten plays of the drive were passes, and the only rush came on 4th-and-one, which Chris Johnson busted for a 21-yard touchdown.<br clear="none" /> <br clear="none" /> The Titans are hardly known as an effective downfield passing team. But Collins attempted 10 passes of 10 yards or more and completed 60 percent of them for 13 yards per attempt.</p> <table align="center" border="0"><tr><td colspan="1" rowspan="1"> <table
