NASHVILLE, Tenn. - In a mostly forgettable season-ender between two bad AFC South teams, Tennessee's Darius Reynaud and Zach Brown had games they'll remember for a long time. Reynaud returned two punts for touchdowns and Brown lugged two interceptions for scores as the Titans routed Jacksonville 38-20 Sunday at LP Field. Reynaud zoomed 69 yards with 33 seconds left in the first half, giving Tennessee (6-10) a 21-14 halftime lead, then went 81 yards with 12:54 remaining in the third quarter - getting a nice block from Coty Sensabaugh around midfield - to up the advantage to 28-14. Brown's pick-sixes of 79 and 30 yards came before and after Reynaud's two scores, meaning the Titans reeled off 28 straight points without a contribution from the offense. The Jaguars ran 20 straight offensive plays from scrimmage from the 3:04 mark of the second quarter to the 10:25 mark of the third period, yet turned a 14-7 advantage into a 35-14 deficit. Tennessee's other scores came on Chris Johnson's two-yard run in the first quarter and Rob Bironas' 48-yard field goal with 12:26 remaining in the game. Jacksonville dominated most of the first half behind its no-huddle offense that gave New England fits in last week's 23-16 loss. Quarterback Chad Henne completed 6-of-7 for 83 yards and two touchdowns on the Jaguars' first two possessions. In fact, Jacksonville was in position to add to its lead at the two-minute mark of the first half. Ahead 14-7, it drove to the Titans' 25, but Henne threw behind Marcedes Lewis and right into Brown's waiting arms for the tying touchdown. Things deteriorated rapidly from there for Jacksonville, which outgained Tennessee 375-221 but was never in contention after the early moments of the third quarter. The Jaguars did tack on a garbage-time score when Mike Harris blocked a punt, scooped it up and went 19 yards with 2:16 left in the game. Henne completed 25 of 41 passes for 298 yards and three interceptions. He was sacked seven times, twice by Derrick Morgan. Notes: Johnson rushed for 56 yards on 21 carries, giving him 1,243 yards for the season. It marks the fourth time in five years he's been over 1,200 yards ... Third-string running back Keith Toston picked up the start for Jacksonville and performed decently with 74 yards on 17 carries, and also caught four passes for 41 yards ... How hard did the injury bug hit Tennessee this season? Only seven players - defensive tackle Jurrell Casey, safety Michael Griffin, cornerback Jason McCourty, defensive end Derrick Morgan, offensive lineman Fernando Velasco, cornerback Alterraun Verner and defensive end Kamerion Wimbley - were able to start all 16 games.
