Justin Hunter Catches Game-Winning Touchdown For Titans

Justin Hunter made his first NFL reception a memorable one on Sunday.

The former Tennessee Volunteer was on the receiving end of a 34-yard touchdown from Jake Locker, which won the game for the Tennessee Titans.

The Titans trailed the San Diego Chargers 17-14, with under a minute to go, when Locker hooked up with Hunter in the end zone.

Hunter made a nice adjustment on the play, turning and twisting in the air, before coming down with the catch.

Before Sundays’ game, Hunter had not recorded an NFL reception. He was inactive for the Titans’ first game and didn’t make it into the box score last week.

Hunter could be in line for more playing time with the Titans. Notably absent on the Titans’ final drive was disgruntled, but talented, receiver Kenny Britt. The Titans are growing increasingly unhappy with Britt, would could lead to Hunter being eased into the wide receiver rotation a bit more.
