Johnson lifts Titans past sloppy Cowboys 34-27

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Chris Johnson scored a pair of 1-yard touchdowns in the fourth quarter, lifting the Tennessee Titans to a 34-27 victory over the mistake-prone Dallas Cowboys.

The Cowboys got behind 17-3 with penalties and errors on defense. Dallas managed to tie it at 17 and 20, then a tipped pass that was intercepted set up Johnson's first touchdown of the final period.

Tony Romo tied it again at 27 on a touchdown throw to Jason Witten, then offensive lineman Marc Colombo was penalized 15 yards for celebrating. Dallas (1-3) kicked off from farther back and Tennessee's Marc Mariani returned it to the 11. A penalty on the tackle moved the ball to the 5, setting up Johnson's next touchdown.

The Titans (3-2) won their 11th straight against an NFC team, the NFL's longest active non-conference win streak.
