Titans rally, edge 49ers on late kick
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Randy Bullock kicked a 44yard field goal with four seconds left and the banged-up Tennessee Titans rallied from a 10-point halftime deficit to beat the San Francisco 49ers 20-17 on Thursday night.
The Titans (10-5) are a win or a Colts’ loss away from clinching their second straight AFC South title despite losing three of their past four games to drop from the AFC’s top seed to third. Indianapolis plays Arizona on Saturday.
Ryan Tannehill threw for just 40 yards in the first half but finished with 209 yards and a touchdown pass. A.J. Brown caught 11 passes for 145 yards hours after being activated off injured reserve, and his 18-yard catch gave Tennessee a 17-10 lead early in the fourth.
“It was all on us and we just had to make a play,“Brown said. “Then we had to make another play. That was the mindset. Just come out here and make plays, so that’s what we did.”
The Titans also picked off two passes, sacked Jimmy Garoppolo twice and forced the 49ers to turn it over on downs once. The 49ers (8-7) lost for the second time in seven games as they try to secure a wild-card berth.
