With the game on the line, the Titans responded with a season-saving drive. At least for now. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick connected with wide receiver Kendall Wright for a 10-yard touchdown with 10 seconds left to lift the Titans to a 23-19 win over the Raiders here on Sunday. The catch capped a 14-play, 80-yard drive that took six minutes off the clock and kept the Titans (5-6) in playoff contention. The Raiders took the lead 19-16 with 6:10 left on a 27-yard touchdown pass from Matt McGloin to fullback Marcel Reece. Rookie wide receiver Justin Hunter gave the Titans a big spark at the start of the second half with a 54-yard touchdown. Hunter caught a pass from Fitzpatrick, put a move on two defenders, and then raced to the end zone to give the Titans a 13-9 lead. The Raiders cut the lead to 13-12 with 1:41 remaining in the third quarter on a 42-yard field goal by Sebastian Janikowski. The Titans opened the lead back up to 16-12 on a 23-yard field goal by Rob Bironas with 8:52 remaining in the game.
