Jake Locker’s 13-yard touchdown run in which he scrambled to the left and followed closely behind offensive tackle Michael Roos en route to the end zone, gave the Titans the go-ahead score late in the third quarter at LP Field.
The touchdown held up in Tennessee’s 14-10 victory over the Jets on Monday Night Football.
Locker completed 3-of-4 passes on the drive, recording his second career rushing touchdown after scoring one as a rookie in 2011. Craig Stevens, Kendall Wright and Chris Johnson also made key blocks during the play.
“My blockers did a great job,” Locker said after the game. “They locked on their guys, stayed on them and allowed me to get into the end zone. It was really well executed by the guys out in front.”
Locker recorded his ninth career start at quarterback, picking up his third win. He completed 13-of-22 passes for 149 yards without throwing an interception (79.5 passer rating). He also rushed for 43 yards and a score on seven carries.
But it was the offense’s efficiency during the scoring drive that he was most pleased with after the game.
“I thought the drive was crisp with a lot of needed tempo,” he said. “There weren’t any mental mistakes and we executed really well. When you do those things, a drive like that is what you are capable of doing. We need to find ways to do that more throughout a game.”
