ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Chris Johnson rushed for 153 yards and two touchdowns, and the Tennessee Titans remained in the playoff hunt with a 23-17 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

Johnson scored on runs of 48 and 4 yards to match his season touchdown total. It was his third 100-yard rushing game in four outings.

Rob Bironas did the rest, hitting three field goals, including a 44-yarder midway through the fourth quarter to put the Titans (7-5) ahead 23-10.

C.J. Spiller had a career-best 83 yards rushing and a touchdown for the Bills (5-7), who continue to spiral out of playoff contention after losing their fifth straight. Stevie Johnson made the game close with a 2-yard touchdown catch with 2:58 left.
