Jaguars edge Titans for elusive first win
Nashville, TN (SportsNetwork.com) - The Jacksonville Jaguars are finally in the win column.
Maurice Jones-Drew and Jordan Todman ran for touchdowns and the difference for the Jaguars turned out to be a safety on a Tennessee holding penalty in the end zone midway through the fourth quarter, giving Jacksonville a 29-27 victory over the Titans.
Jones-Drew carried the ball 21 times for 41 yards and the Jaguars also picked up a defensive score late in the fourth when Will Blackmon ripped the ball away from backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and took it 21 yards to the end zone.
Jacksonville (1-8) snapped a 13-game losing streak dating back to last year and won for only the third time in 25 games over the past two seasons.
Fitzpatrick was 22-of-33 for 264 yards with two touchdowns and ran for a score in relief of Jake Locker, who left with a foot injury before halftime. Delanie Walker had four catches for 62 yards and a touchdown for the Titans (4-5), who failed to build off last week's win at St. Louis and lost for the fourth time in five games.
