Recap


Titans 37, Dolphins 3: Jake Locker tossed a pair of touchdowns and Chris Johnson rushed for 126 yards and scored for the fourth time in as many weeks as visiting Tennessee rebounded from last week's lopsided loss.

Linebacker Colin McCarthy had a 49-yard interception return for a touchdown for the Titans (4-6), who were verbally blasted by 89-year-old owner Bud Adams following their 51-20 loss to Chicago last week.

Locker, who was making his first start since dislocating his non-throwing shoulder on Sept. 30, tossed touchdown strikes to rookie Kendall Wright and tight end Jared Cook.

Johnson put Tennessee up 14-0 after reversing his field and scampering 17 yards for a score and McCarthy ignited the rout by intercepting rookie Ryan Tannehill and lumbering for a score on an gimpy ankle.

After entering the game without committing a turnover since Sept. 30, Tannehill tossed three interceptions as the Dolphins (4-5) suffered their second straight loss.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Miami allowed a 100-yard rusher for the first time in 22 games. ... Tennessee's Rob Bironas set a franchise record for most consecutive extra points without a miss, breaking Al Del Greco's mark. Bironas' streak is now at 232. ... Miami WR Brian Hartline, who had eight receptions for 79 yards, has a career-high 49 catches this season. His previous career best was 43, set in 2010.
