JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) _ The Tennessee Titans found another improbable way to win.

This time it’s taking them to their first Super Bowl in the franchise’s 40 seasons _ 37 of them as the Houston Oilers.

The Titans upset Jacksonville 33-14 on Sunday to win the AFC title, beating the Jaguars for the third time this season.

Steve McNair led the way, running for 93 yards on seven carries and scoring twice on 1-yard quarterback sneaks, despite limping all week with a boot to protect an injured toe.

The Titans took control by scoring 16 points in 4 minutes, 28 seconds of the third quarter after trailing 14-10 at the half.

Tennessee won as it has all season _ a little offense, a lot of defense, and a big contribution from special teams. The defense forced six turnovers.
