The Titans forced four Jets turnovers; Jake Locker threw three touchdowns off turnovers as the Titans led 24–6 at the half. Locker was knocked out of the game in the third quarter following hits from Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples, suffering a right hip injury; a subsequent MRI showed no major damage to Locker's hip and he was sidelined for the next two games. Ryan Fitzpatrick finished the game, throwing a 77-yard score to Nate Washington. Geno Smith of the Jets was intercepted twice, but the most-popularized play came when he fumbled behind his back at the Titans goalline and Karl Klug fell on the touchdown. Tennessee won 38–13.
