Titans ride Johnson TDs to 30-7 win over Bucs

Posted: Updated:

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Chris Johnson ran for two touchdowns and Rob Bironas kicked three field goals as the Tennessee Titans capitalized on some early turnovers to earn a 30-7 preseason victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Friday night.

The Titans (No. 21 in the AP Pro32 rankings) got an early boost from their defense, capitalizing on two first-half turnovers by the Bucs (No. 26).

Tennessee second-year quarterback Jake Locker didn't have an ideal outing in his first NFL start, completing 4 of 11 for 21 yards and an interception.

But his counterpart, Josh Freeman, also looked shaky, completing 4 of 10 for 21 yards in five series of work.

Bucs' Running back LeGarrette Blount left the game in the first half with a left leg injury
