The Titans got a big score and a big stop. And, finally, an AFC South win. The Titans beat the Jaguars 20-16 here on Sunday by rallying from 10 points down in the second half. It snapped a three-game losing streak and gave Tennessee (6-9) its first division win of the season. The Titans took a 20-16 lead on a 30-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to wide receiver Nate Washington with 14:25 left in the fourth quarter. With the Jaguars driving for a potential game-winning score late, Titans safety Bernard Pollard and defensive end Ropati Pitoitua stopped Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew on a fourth-and-1 at the Tennessee 21. The Jaguars had one last chance in the closing minute, but safety George Wilson intercepted a Chad Henne pass to seal the win for the Titans. The Titans jumped to a 3-0 lead with Rob Bironas’ 45-yard field goal on their opening possession, but they managed only one more field goal the rest of the half – a 52-yarder just before the break.
