NFL: Titans beat Texans to secure 1st place in American


HOUSTON – Ryan Tannehill tied a career-high with four touchdown passes and the Tennessee Titans secured first place in the American Association by beating the Houston Texans 28-25 on Sunday.

By virtue of their 12-5 record, the Titans will finish at the first rung of the American for a third time since leaving Houston (1997 and 2008) and they will enjoy a bye in the first round of the. series.

Tannehill threw three touchdown passes in the second quarter to put the Titans ahead 21-0 at halftime.

The Texans (4-13), however, came to life in the second half, scoring 18 unanswered points to approach three points behind their opponents. Julio Jones, however, caught his first touchdown pass of the season to give the Titans a 10-point priority.

The Houston squad narrowed the lead to three points again when Danny Amendola’s second major landing made it 28-25 with more than four minutes to go.

The Titans got a first try and they elapsed the last seconds on the clock to confirm their victory.

Tannehill’s fine performance comes after he suffered four interceptions in his last start against the Texans on November 21. On Sunday, he completed 23 of his 32 passes for overhead gains of 287 yards.

Quarterback Davis Mills had 301 aerial yards and three touchdown passes. He finished the season with 2,604 yards on the air, which put him ahead of David Carr (2,592) for the highest total in team history in a rookie season.

Jefferson runs out of Randy Moss record

The Vikings ended a disappointing season with a 31-17 victory over the Bears in Minneapolis.

Justin Jefferson had 107 passing yards, in addition to registering his 10e touchdown of the season. The Vikings’ all-star receiver ends the campaign with 1,616 receiving yards, 17 yards from a new franchise record. So the 1,632-yard team mark still belongs to Randy Moss.

The Vikings’ defense was stellar in this game, causing two turnovers in addition to collecting seven sacks. Patrick Peterson scored a defensive touchdown on a 66-yard intercept return.

In the loss, wide receiver Darnell Mooney set personal highs for receptions with 12, and for yards with 126.

An end like the Giants’ season

Antonio Gibson distinguished himself with 146 rushing yards and one touchdown in a 22-7 win for the Washington Soccer Team over the New York Giants.

The running back was the offensive star of the game and it was another tough day for the New York side. Jake Fromm completed 15 of 31 passes for 103 yards, one touchdown pass and suffered two interceptions.

The Giants finish last in the Nationale’s East Division with a 4-13 record this season. It will be necessary to follow in the coming days if changes will occur in the staff and what will be the position of head coach of Joe Judge.

Washington rounded out its regular schedule with a 7-10 record.

Chase breaks team record in Game 17

Ja’Marr Chase took advantage of the 17e Cincinnati Bengals’ game of the season to break the team record for most yards for a wide receiver in a 21-16 loss to the Cleveland Browns.

The rookie receiver capped a stellar season with a slim 26-yard harvest, but it was still enough to beat Chad Johnson’s mark set in 2007 when he finished with 1,440 yards. With one more game played this season, Chase concluded with 1,455 yards.

Brandon Allen was quarterback for the Bengals who were assured of the North Section title in the American. He recorded 136 yards and threw a touchdown pass.

Without Baker Mayfield, Case Keenum amassed 176 yards and threw two touchdowns against an interception for the Browns. Ernest Johnson was shown on the ground with 123 yards and one touchdown.

The Browns finished the season with an 8-9 record while the Bengals are in the playoffs with a 10-7 record.
