Game Notes

BRITT RETURNS: Second-year wide receiver Kenny Britt injured his hamstring early in a game at San Diego on Oct. 31.  He sat out the next four games before returning Thursday night against the Colts. He contributed four receptions for 39 yards in the contest.

BABIN PICKS UP ANOTHER SACK: In the second quarter, defensive end Jason Babin dropped Peyton Manning for a seven-yard loss.  The takedown was Babin's team-leading 10th of the season, giving him 27.5 in his career. For the time being, it put Babin in a tie for third place on the NFL's sack leaderboard.

JOHNSON FINDS END ZONE: Late in the second quarter, Chris Johnson scored a touchdown on a one-yard run.  It marked his 10th touchdown of the season and the 33rd of his career.  With the score, Johnson, who reached the end zone 14 times in 2009, joined Earl Campbell (1978-81) as the only players in franchise history with 10 or more rushing touchdowns in consecutive seasons.

TITANS SCORE TOUCHDOWN TO OPEN SECOND HALF: The Titans opened the second half with a touchdown drive that went 62 yards on seven plays and lasted three minutes and 51 seconds.  It was the second time in 2010 the Titans scored a touchdown on their first possession of the second half.  The only other time they did so was Oct. 3 against the Denver Broncos, when they reached the end zone on a kickoff return.  In three additional contests in 2010, the Titans have opened the second half with a drive for a field goal.

STEVENS SCORES SECOND CAREER TOUCHDOWN: Tight end Craig Stevens scored on a seven-yard pass from Kerry Collins in the third quarter.  It marked the second touchdown of Stevens' season and career. 

JOHNSON OVER 100: On a 37-yard carry in the fourth quarter, running back Chris Johnson went over 100 rushing yards for the seventh time in 2010 and the 23rd time in his career. He finished the contest with 111 yards and one touchdown on 22 carries. 

JOHNSON WITH 179 TOTAL YARDS: In addition to his 22 rushing attempts for 111 yards, Chris Johnson led the squad with eight receptions for 68 yards.  His 179-yard total yards from scrimmage set a new season high and matched the sixth-highest total of his three-year career.

SCAIFE SETS CAREER HIGH: Tight end Bo Scaife reached the end zone twice in the fourth quarter, hauling in scoring passes from Kerry Collins of four and two yards.  It marked the first time in Scaife's career he scored twice in a game.  He also established a new career high with four touchdown receptions on the season, topping his two-touchdown totals in three of his previous five NFL campaigns.

COLLINS RECORDS 200TH TOUCHDOWN: With two touchdown tosses to Bo Scaife and one to Craig Stevens, quarterback Kerry Collins reached 200 career touchdown passes.  He became the 31st player in NFL history to reach the mark. 

GAGE REACHES 200 RECEPTIONS: With a six-yard catch in the fourth quarter, wide receiver Justin Gage reached 200 career receptions.

MARIANI'S BUSY DAY: Rookie Marc Mariani tied his season high with seven kickoff returns against the Colts.  His 173 kickoff return yards ranked 13th in franchise history for a single game.
