Nashville, TN (Sports Network) - The Tennessee Titans played the role of
spoiler to perfection on Monday night.
With the Jets' playoff hopes hanging in the balance, Chris Johnson rushed for
122 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries and the Titans intercepted New York
quarterback Mark Sanchez four times in a 14-10 victory at LP Field.
Jake Locker finished 13-of-22 passing for 149 yards to go with 43 rushing
yards on seven carries for the Titans (5-9), who snapped a three-game skid.
New York (6-8) needed to win its final three games to have a shot at a playoff
berth, but Sanchez's performance, which included a fumbled snap with the Jets
deep in Tennessee territory and under a minute remaining, ended any chance of
the Jets earning a postseason bid.
The fourth-year quarterback completed just 13-of-28 passes for 131 yards with
a touchdown in the setback, snapping New York's two-game winning streak and
forcing the Jets to begin looking toward next year.
