NASHVILLE, Nov. 26 (UPI) -- Rookie quarterback Vince Young directed a 24-point fourth quarter Sunday, as Tennessee overcame a 21-point halftime deficit to beat the Giants, 24-21.

Young threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Bo Scaife, scored on a one-yard run, and then threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Jones before place-kicker Rob Bironas capped the comeback with a 49-yard field goal with six seconds left.

Young completed 24-of-35 passes for 249 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions -- and rushed for 69 yards on 10 carries. Bobby Wade caught six passes for 83 yards for the Titans (4-7), who have won their last two games.

The Giants (6-5) built their halftime lead on a 3-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning to Plaxico Burress in the first quarter, and two second-quarter touchdown runs by Brandon Jacobs.

Tiki Barber had 82 yards on 25 carries.
