Offensive coordinator Arthur Smith dialed up a play-action pass at the perfect time.
Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill stood tall in the pocket despite two defenders closing in on him and delivered a beautiful pass to A.J. Brown, who hauled it in and broke Daryl Worley's attempted tackle. It was Tannehill's longest passing touchdown of his career.
The Titans, who never trailed after Brown's long TD catch, sealed the victory when Jayon Brown returned a fourth-quarter fumble 46 yards for a touchdown, pushing Tennessee's lead to 42-21.
