2PC: Vince Young vs. Philip Rivers

The 2-point conversion, or 2PC, is two quick points from this week’s game about next week’s game.  The first point will highlight a Titan player or unit that was the game-changing factor in this week’s game (vs. Philadelphia Eagles).  While the second point will highlight a weakness of the Titan’s upcoming opponent (this week, the San Diego Chargers) from their game.

1. Tennessee Titans

Vince Young (Probable – Sprained Ankle and Knee)

Look for the triumphant return of VY to be the make-or-break match-up for Sunday’s game.  Kenny Britt will be blanketed after last week’s break-out performance and it is hard to believe that the stumbling Chargers could forget about what Chris Johnson is capable of in the open field. That leaves all the weight back on the shoulders of VY.  He will have to distribute his passes, protect the ball, and prolong plays with his legs.  The Titans may lead the NFL in sacks, but so do the San Diego Chargers.


2. San Diego Chargers

Philip Rivers (sacked 18 times, 6 turnovers in 5 losses)

The Chargers have been a real thorn in the side of Jeff Fisher and the Tennessee Titans, especially within the confines of Qualcomm Stadium.  Charger fans should not expect a clumsy or incompetent effort from their talented team at home, but a win is too much to expect from a Norv Turner coached squad.  The Titans will finally get over the hump and the Chargers will finally be able to begin preparations for the 2011 season.
