NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Titans are back in Nashville Monday afternoon after a nail biter in Detroit on Sunday, winning one point over the Lions.

The Titans had trailed by 12 heading into the fourth quarter, but that’s when the offense put together a touchdown winning drive.

It was a pass from Marcus Mariota to wide receiver Andre Johnson between two defenders.

After the game, 35-year-old Johnson shared a hug with the guy who called his number on that touchdown play—offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie.

“He’s one of the reasons why I came here and, you know, he just gave me a hug and he told me, ‘That’s what I brought you here for,’” Johnson said.

“It’s a new role for me. In the beginning, it could be a little frustrating because it’s something you’re not used to, but when you’re able to go out and make a play like that to help your team win a game, you know, it makes it all worth it,” the wide receiver added.

This year is Johnson’s 14th year in the NFL. Sunday was his 69th career touchdown, and he said it was at the top of his list.
