Titans Game Notes

BULLUCK'S STREAK ENDS: The game versus the Chargers marked the end of one of the longest iron-man streaks in Titans/Oilers history. Keith Bulluck was inactive after tearing his left ACL in the previous game against the Miami Dolphins. It concluded his run of 135 consecutive games and 127 straight starts. His starting streak was the third longest by a linebacker in franchise history and was the second-leading active streak among all current NFL linebackers. Additionally, only one other defensive player in club history, Robert Brazile (147), appeared in more consecutive games than Bulluck.

JOHNSON'S RUSHES OF 20 YARDS: On the Titans' first offensive play of the game, Chris Johnson rushed for 25 yards. The play was his 21st run of the season of 20-plus yards, the most in the NFL in the last 15 seasons. He topped Adrian Peterson's 20 rushes of 20-plus yards in 2008. Johnson added a 30-yard touchdown run later in the game.

JOHNSON HITS 3,000: With a 17-yard run in the first quarter, Chris Johnson hit the 3,000-yard mark for his career. He became the seventh player in NFL history to reach the plateau in his first 30 career games (Eric Dickerson, Jim Brown, Adrian Peterson, Clinton Portis, Earl Campbell, Edgerrin James).

FORD TAKES SACK LEAD: Defensive end Jacob Ford's five-yard sack in the second quarter gave him 5.5 sacks in 2009, the most of any Titans defender. Defensive tackle Tony Brown is now second on the squad with five sacks this season.

YOUNG RUSHES FOR A SCORE: Late in the second quarter, the Titans scored their first touchdown of the game on a three-yard run by quarterback Vince Young. The score was Young's second rushing touchdown of the season and 12th rushing touchdown of his career.

JOHNSON HITS 100 AGAIN: With a two-yard carry in the fourth quarter, Chris Johnson hit the 100-yard rushing mark for the 15th time in his career and for the 10th consecutive game, extending his franchise record and giving him the third-longest streak in NFL history. The only players with longer streaks were Barry Sanders (14 games in 1997) and Marcus Allen (11 games in 1985-86).

WASHINGTON HITS CAREER HIGH FOR SEASON: With four receptions against the Chargers, wide receiver Nate Washington set a new career high for catches in a season, surpassing the 40 receptions he posted with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2008.

JOHNSON SCORES ON 30-YARD RUN, MOVES INTO ELITE COMPANY: Chris Johnson scored on a 30-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. With the run, he catapulted into 10th place on the NFL's single-season rushing list, passing Jim Brown's 1963 output of 1,863 yards. Also on the play, he moved into fifth place on the single-season scrimmage yards list, ahead of Steven Jackson's 2006 total of 2,334 yards.

JOHNSON HAS ONE REMAINING GAME TO REACH RECORDS: With one game remaining next week at Seattle (Sunday, 3:15 p.m. CT), Chris Johnson is within reach of several franchise and league marks. His season totals include 1,872 rushing yards and 483 receiving yards for a total of 2,355 yards from scrimmage. Johnson needs 63 rushing yards to break Earl Campbell's single-season franchise rushing record (1,934 yards in 1980), 128 rushing yards to reach 2,000, 234 yards to break Eric Dickerson's NFL single-season rushing record (2,105 in 1984), and 75 total scrimmage yards to break Marshall Faulk's NFL single-season record (2,429 in 1999).
