Johnson Has Another Big Day; Titans Run Past Bills 23-17

The Titans have waited all season to see running back Chris Johnson come to life, and finally after a slow start Johnson is being the back Titans fans had been waiting for.

Johnson ran for 153 yards and two touchdowns, and the Titans kept their playoff hopes alive with 23-17 win over the Bills in Buffalo Sunday.

Johnson scored on runs of 48 and 4 yards to match his season touchdown total. It was his third 100-yard rushing game in four outings.

Rob Bironas did the rest, hitting three field goals, including a 44-yarder midway through the fourth quarter to put the Titans ahead 23-10.

The Titans move to 7-5 on the season, still behind the Texans for first in the AFC South, but in the hunt when it comes to a possible wild card in the AFC.

C.J. Spiller had a career-best 83 yards rushing and a touchdown for the Bills (5-7), who continue to spiral out of playoff contention after losing their fifth straight. Stevie Johnson made the game close with a 2-yard touchdown catch with 2:58 left.

The Titans will be at home next Sunday for a huge game against Drew Brees and the Saints.
