NASHVILLE (AP) — Ryan Tannehill ran for two touchdowns and threw three more with Derrick Henry running for 147 yards and a score as the Tennessee Titans moved closer to clinching their third playoff berth in four seasons by routing the Detroit Lions 46-25.

The Titans did their part with their second straight victory and fourth in five games to stay atop the AFC South.

With Indianapolis beating Houston 27-20, the Titans still hold the divisional tiebreaker with two to play.

The Lions officially were eliminated after their second straight loss with interim coach Darrell Bevell even as quarterback Matthew Stafford played despite a rib injury.
