The Tennessee Titans finally have their first victory in a month. It was an ugly game against the New York Jets that they had no business winning, and that's OK with them.

Yes, winning really is all that matters.

The Titans overcame a blocked field goal, two shanked punts by the player who's been their most reliable and an offense that managed one drive when it mattered most. There were a few highlights in Monday night's ugly 14-10 win: a franchise-record touchdown run from Chris Johnson, and the defense forced five turnovers and had four sacks.

Coach Mike Munchak said Tuesday it didn't matter how it looked, they won and it's a nice feeling of relief.

The Titans (5-9) host Green Bay (10-4) on Sunday.
