Jets fall to Titans 14-10, ending playoff hopes
The New York Jets fell to the Tennessee Titans 14-10 in Monday Night Football in Nashville, ending their last remaining hope of making it to the playoffs. Struggling Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez had an ugly night, as he was intercepted four times, and then turned the ball over when the Jets had a chance to win with 47 seconds left on the Tennessee 25 yard line, fumbling the snap, which allowed the Titans to recover it to seal the win. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Sanchez was also sacked three times, as he went 13 of 28 for 131 yards with one touchdown pass. Titans quarterback Jake Locker was 13 of 22 for 149 yards with no touchdown passes. Chris Johnson had the night’s standout play for the Titans, running 94 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter, the longest touchdown run in the NFL since 2006. It marked Johnson’s sixth career touchdown run of at least 80 yards, twice as many as anyone else in NFL history.
