Titans Pounce on Sanchez Errors To Win 14-10 on MNF
The New York Jets’ playoff hopes are gone, lost in a wave of turnovers by struggling Mark Sanchez.
Chris Johnson went 94 yards for the longest touchdown run in the NFL since 2006, and theTennessee Titans beat the Jets 14-10 on Monday night to eliminate New York from postseason contention.
Jake Locker’s first touchdown run of the season put Tennessee ahead to stay late in the third quarter, and the Titans intercepted four passes by Sanchez to snap a three-game skid.
“The bottom line is we hung in there, something we haven’t been able to do the last two, three weeks of hold on to a lead or find a way to win in the fourth quarter, and this time we did,” Titans coach Mike Munchak said. “It’s good to win again. It’s been a while.”
After bumbling around all night, the Jets somehow still had a chance to win when they took over at the Tennessee 25 with 47 seconds left following a 19-yard punt by Brett Kern. But Sanchez fumbled a low shotgun snap, running back Bilal Powell inadvertently kicked the ball away and the Titans recovered to seal it.
