Nashville, TN (Sports Network) - The Tennessee Titans played the role of spoiler to perfection on Monday night.

With the Jets' playoff hopes hanging in the balance, Chris Johnson rushed for 122 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries and the Titans intercepted New York quarterback Mark Sanchez four times in a 14-10 victory at LP Field.

Jake Locker finished 13-of-22 passing for 149 yards to go with 43 rushing yards on seven carries for the Titans (5-9), who snapped a three-game skid.

New York (6-8) needed to win its final three games to have a shot at a playoff berth, but Sanchez's performance, which included a fumbled snap with the Jets deep in Tennessee territory and under a minute remaining, ended any chance of the Jets earning a postseason bid.

The fourth-year quarterback completed just 13-of-28 passes for 131 yards with a touchdown in the setback, snapping New York's two-game winning streak and forcing the Jets to begin looking toward next year.
