ORCHARD PARK, N.Y., Dec. 4 (UPI) -- Chris Johnson rambled for 153 yards and scored a pair of touchdowns Sunday, propelling the Tennessee Titans to a 23-17 decision over reeling Buffalo.

Johnson carried the ball 23 times, logging his third 100-yard performance in four games after earning the wrath of Titans fans with a slow start to the season and a lengthy contract holdout.

Matt Hasselbeck tossed for 140 yards in a 16-of-25 passing performance as the Titans (7-5) won their second straight.

The Bills (5-7), meanwhile, dropped their fifth consecutive contest.

Ryan Fitzpatrick connected on 29-of-46 pass attempts, amassing 288 yards and hurling a TD pass in the loss.

C.J. Spiller led Buffalo's ground game with 83 yards on 14 carries.
