TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- First the Tennessee Titans lost star quarterback Vince Young, then they lost 13-10 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Matt Bryant's 43-yard field goal with 11 seconds remaining lifted the Bucs to their fourth win in six games this season. It also snapped Tennessee's five-game road winning streak and dropped the Titans to 3-and-2 on the year.

Vince Young, the 2006 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, limped off in the third quarter with a strained thigh muscle.

Tampa's Jeff Garcia threw a 69-yard touchdown pass to Joey Galloway less than five minutes later. Garcia then led the Bucs on the winning drive after the Titans tied the score on LenDale White's 2-yard run with 1:17 left.

Tampa Bay, which rebounded from a lopsided loss to Super Bowl champion Indianapolis, has already matched last season's victory total. Garcia gets much of the credit. The 37-year-old free agent acquisition completed 20 of 31 passes for 274 yards and has not thrown an interception this season.
