NASHVILLE, Dec. 24 (UPI) -- Matt Hasselbeck amassed 350 passing yards with a score Saturday and Tennessee stayed alive in the playoff hunt with a 23-17 victory over Jacksonville.

Hasselbeck went 24-of-40 through the air as Tennessee (8-7) bounced back from last week's loss to Indianapolis.

The win allowed the Titans to remain one game behind Cincinnati for the AFC's final wild card spot.

The Jaguars (4-11) were led by Maurice Jones-Drew with 103 rushing yards and a TD on 24 carries, but Blaine Gabbert was held to 198 passing yards and one interception in the loss.
