Jake Locker needed a signature moment in his Titans career to solidify the public impression of himself as a franchise quarterback. He may have gotten that on Sunday with a comeback 20-17 victory over the Chargers.
With the Titans trailing 17-13 and starting from their own six-yard line with barely more than two minutes to go, Locker drove Tennessee down the field before hitting rookie Justin Hunter on a 34-yard touchdown catch with 15 seconds left in the game, giving the Titans a three-point win.
Locker was 7-of-10 for 94 yards and a touchdown on the final drive alone. The Chargers fell to 1-2.
