Chris Johnson went 94 yards for the longest touchdown run in the NFL since 2006, and the Tennessee Titans beat the Jets 14-10 on Monday night to eliminate New York from postseason contention.

After bumbling around all night, the Jets somehow still had a chance to win when they took over at the Tennessee 25 with 47 seconds left following a 19-yard punt by Brett Kern. But Mark Sanchez, who was intercepted four times, fumbled a low shotgun snap, Bilal Powell inadvertently kicked the ball away and the Titans recovered to seal it.

It was a fitting end to an ugly game that left New York coach Rex Ryan cursing to himself as he walked off the field. Sanchez finished with five turnovers -- one on each of his team's final three possessions.

The Jets (6-8) needed to win their final three games and get help elsewhere to earn a playoff spot. Instead, they will miss the playoffs for a second straight season after reaching consecutive AFC title games.

Redskins: Washington coach Mike Shanahan says Robert Griffin III will be the starter again once doctors say the rookie's sprained right knee has healed "100 percent."

Another rookie, Kirk Cousins, filled in for Griffin on Sunday and led a 38-21 win over the Cleveland Browns. Shanahan said the performance won't tempt him to start Cousins again just to give Griffin extra time to rest the knee.
