NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The Tennessee Titans believe they can run their way to both a winning record and this franchise's first playoff berth since 2008.

The Titans put together their best performance on the ground this season beating the St. Louis Rams 28-21 to snap a three-game skid. Chris Johnson ran for a season-high 150 yards and his first two touchdowns. Shonn Greene ran for a TD, and even Jake Locker scrambled for a TD as the Titans ran for a season-high 198 yards.

Coach Mike Munchak said Monday that formula down the stretch will help the Titans (4-4) contend because Johnson and Greene running well with the Titans controlling the line of scrimmage opens up so much offensively.

The Titans host winless Jacksonville on Sunday.
