Titans edge Tampa Bay 23-17

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Chris Johnson ran for a season-high 190

yards, and Matt Hasselbeck threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Damian

Williams on fourth-and-2 with 3:01 left and the Tennessee Titans

beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 23-17 Sunday.

The Titans (6-5) forced five turnovers and overcame four

turnovers of their own. The Bucs outscored them 14-3 off mistakes

even though Tennessee got the ball three times on Tampa Bay's side

of the field.

But the Titans got the ninth and final turnover of the game when

rookie linebacker Colin McCarthy intercepted Josh Freeman with 2:19


The Bucs (4-7) lost their fifth straight even with LeGarrette

Blount running for 103 yards.

Freeman threw for 199 yards and a touchdown, but he had an

interception and lost a fumble. He also fumbled the snap on

fourth-and-1 before being tackled with 40 seconds left to seal the

Titans' victory.
