Bills can't hold on against Titans

Hasselbeck's late TD pass ends defensive disaster

(Continued)

ORCHARD PARK —

“Yeah, I’ve been waiting for it for a while,” Johnson said. “I don’t think I went 80 yards in like two years, so it feels good.”
The Titans (3-4) won their first road game after opening with three consecutive losses.
The Bills (3-4) have lost three of their past four while stumbling into their bye week with plenty of problems to address.
Their defense still can’t stop the run. In allowing the Titans 197 yards rushing, the Bills have now given up 182 or more yards on the ground in each of their past four games — including 311 in a 45-3 loss at San Francisco two weeks ago.
And quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick continues to raise questions about his inconsistencies. Though he finished 27 of 35 for 225 and three scores, he had two costly turnovers that led to Titans touchdowns. That included his ill-advised pass on third-and-6 that was intercepted by Jason McCourty at midfield with 2:57 to set up the decisive score.
Fitzpatrick blamed himself.
“I got greedy in a situation where I didn’t have any business being greedy in,” Fitzpatrick said, referring to his attempt to force a pass to Donald Jones at the right sideline. “It was a dumb throw and dumb decision by me. Third down, and game on the line, (coach) Chan (Gailey) put the ball in my hands, and I throw an interception. That one hurts.”
Gailey refused to pin all the blame on his quarterback.
“He had a bad throw at the end. Other than that, he played really, really well,” Gailey said. “If you get rid of all the quarterbacks for one bad throw, you’re not going to have any quarterbacks left.”
The trouble is, Fitzpatrick’s had more than one bad throw this season. In Buffalo’s four losses, he’s thrown 10 touchdowns, nine interceptions and lost one fumble. In Buffalo’s three wins, Fitzpatrick has five touchdowns, no interceptions and one lost fumble.
