The Jacksonville Jaguars came in desperate. That was more than enough against the short-handed Tennessee Titans.
Quinn Gray threw for a touchdown, and Maurice Jones-Drew and Fred Taylor ran for one apiece as the Jaguars beat Tennessee 28-13 Sunday to split the season series and work their way back into a tie for second in the AFC South.
The Jaguars (6-3) came in having lost two of three. They also wanted to amend for a season-opening loss to Tennessee in which they gave up 282 yards rushing.
Consider that done.
Jacksonville snapped the Titans' three-game winning streak; the Titans needed a win to ensure remaining at worst a game behind Indianapolis in the AFC South. The Titans (6-3) struggled with defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth and defensive end Travis LaBoy sitting out with injuries.
The Titans also played without Chris Brown, who ran for a career-high 175 yards in that opener but missed his fourth game with a sprained ankle.
That put pressure on Vince Young, who threw for a career-high 257 yards and his first TD pass since Sept. 24. But the Jaguars sacked him four times, recovered a botched snap and picked Young off twice -- the last with 1:14 left at the Jacksonville 1.
