Chad Henne, making his first start in more than 13 months, threw for 261 yards, two touchdowns and one interception as the NFL's worst offence continued its upward curve.

Cecil Shorts and Justin Blackmon caught the scores, Rashad Jennings rushed in for a touchdown and Josh Scobee iced the game with a 41-yard field goal with 24 seconds.

Henne's first pass of the game was tipped and intercepted and he also was sacked seven times, including twice that took the Jaguars (2-9) out of field-goal range, but managed to keep his composure.

The hosts led 7-6 at half-time as Jennings' touchdown was negated somewhat by two field goals from Rob Bironas.

In the third quarter Shorts set a franchise record with his fourth reception of at least 50 yards this season, but two more Bironas kicks kept the Titans in touch.

Henne hooked up with rookie Blackmon for a seven-yard score in the fourth quarter but the Titans (4-7) cut the lead to 21-19 on Jake Locker's six-yard pass to Kenny Britt with 4:52 remaining.

Scobee's field goal gave the hosts some breathing space again and Locker, who threw for 261 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions, could not produce a miracle at the end.
