In his third game as the Titans' starter, Matt Hasselbeck led a winning drive as time grew small against the Buffalo Bills.
Tennessee Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to Nate Washington on fourth down with 1:03 left in the fourth quarter, and the Titans beat the Buffalo Bills, 35-34, on Sunday.
The Bills came back to take a third-quarter lead on a pair of Ryan Fitzpatrick touchdown passes. The first was to Donald Jones, a 15-yard play, and that resulted in this celebration inspired by The Sugarhill Gang's "Apache."
The Bills then took a six-point lead on a 27-yard pass from Fitzpatrick to Stevie Johnson.
Chris Johnson rushed for a season-high 195 yards and two touchdowns, his first touchdowns of the season, on 18 rushes. The 195 yards were the third-highest single-game total of his career. The two higher totals, a 228-yard game and a 197-yarder, both came in 2009 when he rushed for 2,006 yards on the season.
It was only Johnson's second 100-yard game of 2012, and he could've made that claim if he hadn't played past the first quarter. He broke off this 83-yard touchdown, his second score of the day, with 2:43 left in the first.
Obviously, you did well for yourself if you played Johnson this week. Fitzpatrick would have been a solid play as well. He finished 27 of 35 for 225 yards and three touchdowns. He did have one interception, a particularly costly one that set up Tennessee's winning drive. Of course, that's not accounted for in fantasy points.
AGAINST THE ODDS
Buffalo was almost unanimously a 4 1/2-point favorite at home against the Titans, so that went out the window. Bettors were also way off on the over/under, which was set at 46 1/2. It's not often the over/under is cleared by 22 1/2 points.
