Nashville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) – Ryan Succop connected on three field goals
and the Tennessee special-teams unit came up with a game-saving field-goal
block in the final seconds, as the Titans escaped with a 16-14 decision over
the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6 action.
With Jake Locker inactive due to a thumb injury, Charlie Whitehurst finished
17-of-28 for 233 yards for the Titans (2-4), who did just enough to put an end
to a four-game losing skid since a season-opening win at Kansas City.
Bishop Sankey totaled 61 yards on 18 carries, Justin Hunter added 77 yards on
three catches and Jackie Battle’s rushing score accounted for the hosts’ lone
Blake Bortles threw for 336 yards and a late score to Clay Harbor on 32-of-46
attempts for the Jaguars (0-6), who have dropped the first six games of a
season for the second consecutive year.
Cecil Shorts led all receivers with 103 yards and 10 receptions, with Storm
Johnson adding another TD on the ground.
