Hunter catches game winner with 15 seconds left, Titans over Chargers 20-17

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Jake Locker threw a 34-yard touchdown pass to rookie Justin Hunter with 15 seconds left and the Tennessee Titans rallied to beat San Diego 20-17 Sunday.

It was the first win over the Chargers for the franchise since 1992 when the team was in Houston.

The Titans (2-1) had lost nine straight to San Diego in a skid that spanned two states and two decades.

Locker ended the slide by completing seven passes to six different receivers for 94 yards on the game-winning drive.

He finished with 299 yards passing and also ran for 68 yards.

The Chargers' final play featured a handful of laterals and even a kick of the ball trying to keep it alive before the game ended.

San Diego (1-2) led most of the game despite having three starters out because of injuries and lost a fourth to an injured foot in the first half.
