NASHVILLE, Tenn.(AP) — Maurice Jones-Drew ran for a career-best 186 yards and Rashad Jennings and David Garrard each ran for a touchdown in leading the Jacksonville Jaguars to a 17-6 victory over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

The win allowed the Jaguars (7-5) to take over first-place in the AFC South, a half-game ahead of the Indianapolis Colts, who played later Sunday.

The Jaguars took control on the ground from the start on a windy, cold day. They scored on their opening drive by running through and over the Titans to split the season series.

Tennessee (5-7) started veteran Kerry Collins at quarterback, but the Titans were unable to avoid their fifth straight loss. The Titans have now gone 13 quarters without scoring a touchdown.

Jacksonville held the ball for more than 21 minutes in the first half and scored the first 17 points.
