Marcus Mariota scored on a 23-yard touchdown run on zone-read keeper to give the Tennessee Titans a 13-9 lead over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night.

After a third Jason Myers field goal gave Jacksonville a 9-6 lead, the Titans quickly answered with the first touchdown drive of the game. A pair of defensive pass interference penalties aided the drive as Tennessee covered 81 yards on five plays, though 48 yards were via penalty.

The Titans had mounted a goal line stand to force the Jaguars field goal on the previous drive. Denard Robinson was stuffed at the goal line on third straight runs before Myers 20-yard field goal.
