Kenny Britt caught seven passes for a career-high 225 yards and three scores despite being benched for one quarter and the short-handed Tennessee Titans beat the visiting Philadelphia Eagles 37-19 on Sunday.
Tennessee won its third straight game overall and 12th in a row over the NFC by outscoring Philadelphia 27-3 in the fourth quarter. Cortland Finnegan’s 41-yard interception return for a touchdown as time expired capped the outburst.
Britt, who was benched as punishment for his involvement in a bar fight on Friday, caught touchdown passes of 26, 80 and 16 yards from backup quarterback Kerry Collins.
Britt’s huge game helped the Titans (5-2) improve to 17-1 in their last 18 games against NFC opponents. The second-year receiver recorded the Titans’ first 200-yard receiving game since Drew Bennett in 2004.
Collins, meanwhile, finished 17 for 31 for 276 yards and two interceptions in place of the injured Vince Young, who is recovering from a sprained knee and ankle.
Kevin Kolb was 26 of 48 for 231 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions for the Eagles (4-3), who turned the ball over four times.
Philadelphia held a 16-7 lead early in the third quarter and was going in for another score before LeSean McCoy’s fumble at the 3-yard line changed the momentum.
