NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Titans' record-setting scoring surge is over. Thanks to their defense, their winning streak is intact.
In the short-term, Johnson should further QB Byron Leftwich's development this season. The Jags are hoping Johnson and fellow receiver Jimmy Smith will be able to give Leftwich the type of long-term receiving pair that will fuel the team's future success.
Question on the Titans: Did it appear to you that the Titans took Jacksonville too lightly?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
The Titans extended their NFL-best streak to 26 straight home games without allowing a 100-yard rusher. ... Leftwich finished without a touchdown for the first time in nine games. He had been tied with Oliver Luck with at least one TD passing or rushing in his first eight games. ... Tennessee now has won 10 straight at home. ... Titans kicker Joe Nedney, on injured reserve after tearing an ACL in his non-kicking leg, retrieved the tee after Tennessee's second kickoff. ... Taylor hurt his left knee in the third quarter. He had only one carry in the fourth quarter. ... The Titans got one sack to extend their streak to 18 straight games with at least one sack.
