Titans 30, Rams 3

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The St. Louis Rams should be grateful their championship rings weren't on the line.

Steve McNair threw for a touchdown, backup Neil O'Donnell tossed two more and the defense got five sacks as the Tennessee Titans routed the Rams 30-3 Monday night in a preseason rematch of the Super Bowl.

It wasn't the Georgia Dome in January, but the atmosphere felt like much more than just an exhibition. Navy SEALS jumped into Adelphia Coliseum before kickoff, and tickets were being scalped outside the sold-out stadium.

The Rams (1-1) helped excite the crowd with their college impersonation as they jumped on the Titans' flameball logo at midfield before the introductions.

That would be the most life the Super Bowl champs showed all night.

The Titans (2-0) played keepaway the entire first quarter, allowing St. Louis just one series where the Rams went three-and-out. Eddie George had a night's worth of work as he carried 15 times for 69 yards in two series.
