Titans... 47, Lions... 10

Chris Johnson was untouched on a short run to the outside and a long gain up the middle.

The two plays were symbolic of the canyon-like gap between the once-beaten Tennessee Titans and the 0-12 Detroit Lions.

Johnson ran for two touchdowns in the first quarter, LenDale White scored twice in the second and Tennessee coasted to a 47-10 win over Detroit.


Johnson finished with 125 yards rushing and White had 106 on the ground as Tennessee (11-1) met its goal of reestablishing its running game.

With a 34-point lead midway through the fourth quarter, Vince Young played for the first time since spraining his left knee in the opener, mentioning suicide to his therapist and losing his job to Kerry Collins.
