Titans make selves at home, finally
NASHVILLE — The Titans are grateful they play the Jaguars at least once a year in Music City.
Rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota scored the go-ahead touchdown on an 87-yard run midway through a wild fourth quarter as Tennessee narrowly snapped the NFL's longest home skid at 11 games. The Titans had not won at home since Oct. 12, 2014, when they beat the Jaguars 16-14. That was their lone home win of 2014.
"You got to start somewhere to put your foot down and draw the line and say enough's enough," Titans interim coach Mike Mularkey said. "Was it today? We'll see. I'd like to think it is."
Jacksonville's Blake Bortles threw for 322 yards and five scores to set a franchise record for TD passes in a season. The former UCF star has 27, breaking David Garrard's mark of 23 in 2010.
