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

Jake Locker's first touchdown run of the season put Tennessee (5-9) ahead late in the third quarter. The Titans intercepted four passes by a struggling Mark Sanchez to snap a three-game skid.

The Jets (6-8) needed to win their final three games and get help elsewhere to earn an AFC playoff spot. Instead, the Titans sacked Sanchez three times and got a fourth on Tim Tebow.

Jason McCourty and Michael Griffin each had two interceptions, keeping the Jets out of the playoffs a second straight season after reaching consecutive AFC title games.

With the names of the victims of Friday's shootings in Connecticut written on his cleats, Johnson ran 94 yards for a franchise-record TD in the second quarter.

After Robert Malone's 53-yard punt backed the Titans up to their own 5-yard line, Johnson rushed for 1 yard on first down. On the next play, he found a seam up the middle and appeared untouched on his way to the end zone.

Jets safety Yeremiah Bell chased Johnson most of the way and made an unsuccessful diving attempt to tackle him inside the 15.

Johnson's touchdown run was the longest by any NFL player since Minnesota's Chester Taylor had a 95-yard touchdown in a 31-13 victory over Seattle on Oct. 22, 2006.
