Titans run past Raiders 38-13

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Chris Johnson ran for 142 yards and two touchdowns, Vince Young threw for two TDs and Javon Ringer had a TD, and the Tennessee Titans avoided any comparisons to last year's 0-6 start by routing the Oakland Raiders 38-13 Sunday in the opener.

Oakland led 3-0 early after a Young fumble. That was the lone bright moment for the Raiders.

Tennessee answered with 24 straight points to take control. The Titans also sacked new Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell four times and forced two turnovers they turned into 10 points.

Johnson, the NFL's Offensive Player of the Year, extended his streak to 12 consecutive 100-yard games by halftime to break a tie with Marcus Allen. He trails only Barry Sanders, who had an NFL-best 14 such games.
