JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Jordan Todman juked one defender and stiff-armed another on his way to a 62-yard touchdown run that helped the Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Tennessee Titans 21-13 on Thursday night.

Todman’s first carry was the biggest play in a relatively meaningless game between two of the NFL’s worst teams.

The Jaguars (3-12) won for the second time in four weeks thanks to a rejuvenated offense that had been mostly stagnant for four-plus games. Playing the Titans (2-13) surely aided the effort.

Tennessee lost its ninth consecutive game and moved a step closer to securing the No. 1 pick in the draft.

The Titans had a chance late and were driving, but defensive tackle Sen’Derrick Marks sacked Charlie Whitehurst on the final play. It gave Marks’ 81/2 sacks this season, triggering a $600,000 bonus in his contract.


SEAHAWKS: Linebacker K.J. Wright signed a four-year extension worth up to $27 million, keeping one of Seattle’s key defensive players from reaching free agency.

Wright was in the final year of his rookie contract and making $1.4 million in base salary. While the idea of seeing what he was worth on the open market was intriguing, he ultimately wanted to remain with the team that drafted him in the fourth round in 2011.

RAMS: The five players who did the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” gesture before a recent home game are scheduled to appear at an Urban League of St. Louis Christmas Party on Friday for residents of Ferguson and north St. Louis County.

Tight end Jared Cook and wide receivers Kenny Britt, Tavon Austin, Stedman Bailey and Chris Givens will attend after practicing for the home finale against the New York Giants on Sunday. The group is contributing $10,000 to purchase clothes, non-perishable food items, detergent and personal hygiene items that will be distributed at the event.

The Rams and the Urban League anticipate attendance of 250-300 for a party that will also include food and games.

49ERS: Coach Jim Harbaugh is declining to respond to reports that he is weighing an offer from Michigan to become the new head coach at his alma mater.

Harbaugh has one season remaining on the $25 million, five-year contract he signed in January 2011. Several media outlets have reported Harbaugh has a six-year offer on the table to return to Ann Arbor.

“As you know, I’ll only talk about the job that I have. We’ve been together a long time and it’s a longstanding policy,” Harbaugh said Thursday.

The Niners (7-7) were eliminated from playoff contention in last Sunday’s 17-7 loss at Seattle, giving them their first three-game losing streak under Harbaugh. San Francisco had reached three straight NFC championship games, losing the Super Bowl after the 2012 season.

BRONCOS: Peyton Manning is over his illness but not his injury.

Denver’s quarterback was limited Thursday when the Broncos reconvened for their first practice since their win at San Diego on Sunday. Manning fought through the flu in that game and strained his right thigh late in the first half.

Manning participated in the walkthrough but retreated to the Broncos’ facility after the team stretch while backup Brock Osweiler took over the offense.

He didn’t appear in any discomfort afterward, saying, “I feel OK,” and, when asked if he’ll be ready to play Monday night, added, “I certainly hope so.”

CHARGERS: Philip Rivers was back at practice, and by all accounts it was a perfect one.

The quarterback returned a day after sitting out practice in order to rest chest and back injuries. He expects to play at San Francisco on Saturday night, when the Chargers (8-6) hope to keep their playoff chances alive.

Rivers has injuries that neither the team nor the quarterback have spoken specifically about.

“Philip had an outstanding day,” Coach Mike McCoy said. “The ball did not hit the ground in all the throws he made today. So Philip was Philip today, so he’ll be ready to roll.”

BROWNS: Wide receiver Andrew Hawkins, who leads Cleveland with 58 receptions for 763 yards, was not on the practice field during the portion of the workout open to the media.

The team did not have an immediate reason for Hawkins’ absence, but earlier this week, the player, who is in his first season with the Browns, poignantly spoke about his reasons for wearing a T-shirt before Sunday’s game protesting two police shootings in Ohio.

BEARS: Coach Marc Trestman said Jay Cutler will be available as Jimmy Clausen’s backup for Sunday’s game at Soldier Field, where boos have rained down on a punchless team that is 5-9 and playing out the string after starting the season with hopes of a deep playoff run.

Cutler leads the league in interceptions (18) and turnovers (24) and he was benched after a dismal outing in Monday’s loss to New Orleans.
