Recap

Nate Washington ran for a touchdown and caught another as the Tennessee Titans snapped a two-game losing streak with a 27-10 victory over the winless Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
 
Jason McCourty scored off a blocked punt and Rob Bironas kicked a pair of 50-plus-yard field goals for Tennessee (4-3), which bounced back from last week’s 41-7 loss to Houston.
 
The Titans ended a five-game losing streak to the hapless Colts (0-8), who were coming off an embarrassing 62-7 loss to the New Orleans Saints. Tennessee got by without much help from struggling tailback Chris Johnson, who couldn’t get untracked against the league’s 31th-ranked rushing defense.
 
Johnson, who signed a four-year, $53 million deal after a prolonged holdout, managed just 34 yards on 14 carries. He mustered just one yard on his first five carries and then ceded a chunk of playing time to backup Javon Ringer (14 carries, 60 yards).
 
Johnson has as many rushing touchdowns as Washington, who ran in from 3 yards out with 22 seconds left in the first half. Washington went in motion, took a quick lateral from Matt Hasselbeck and raced around the right side.
 
Indianapolis appeared to have a pulse early in the fourth quarter when Donald Brown’s 4-yard touchdown run made it 20-10. But Washington’s 14-yard touchdown catch after Barrett Ruud’s interception sealed the win.
