    SUMMARY: Saints QB Todd Bouman tossed a 22-yard touchdown pass to Lance Moore with 3:30 left as the Saints rallied for a 19-16 victory over the Tennessee Titans. The game was the first for Saints RB Reggie Bush who had six carries for 59 yards including a 44-yard scamper on a broken play. Titans QB Vince Young was 4-of-11 for 56 yards and ran four times for 28 yards. WR Roydell Williams dropped a perfect Young pass which would have been a big gainer. Titans RB Chris Brown had nine carries for 47 yards which included a 21-yard run. K Rob Bironas had a big night with three field goals and numerous deep kickoffs. Rookie RB LenDale White did not dress for the game due to an incident earlier in the week. DT Randy Starks also did not play because of being charged Saturday with misdemeanor domestic assault.

    Vince got much needed reps in NFL game action. Came out of it (apparently) healthy.

    Sounded like most of our starters played well.

    We lost a meaningless game.

    Let's move on to the next one.

    That shank by Bironas was due to a poor snap Hentrich received. Bironas was actually one of the bright spots for the Titans tonight.

    Bironas didn't cost us anything. Williams drop is another story but no guarantee we would have even scored if he caught it

    Hit the nail right on the head Bigtitan.... too many big plays. Although after those big plays our red-zone defense played very well. If my memory serves me right they had like 5 red-zone posessions and scored only 1 td. pretty good
