DETROIT -- The Tennessee Titans are already a third of the way to last seasons victory total, thanks to Marcus Mariotas poise in the fourth quarter against Detroit.Mariotas 9-for-9 performance on the winning drive Sunday was an encouraging step for the second-year quarterback, who is trying to help the Titans improve on a three-win season in 2015.Mariotas 9-yard touchdown pass to Andre Johnson with 1:13 left lifted Tennessee to a 16-15 win over the Lions.The winning TD came on fourth down.I just think we learned some lessons about ourselves, Tennessee coach Mike Mularkey said. They finished a game and they did it on the road. A lot of circumstances were tough at the end there and I was really proud.Mariota competed every pass he attempted during a 13-play, 83-yard drive for the winning points. The Lions, meanwhile, wasted a nice opportunity a week before playing at Green Bay.Detroit (1-1) was coming off a season-opening win at Indianapolis, but the Lions blew a 15-3 lead in the fourth quarter Sunday.They also committed 17 penalties for 138 yards. Tennessee was flagged 12 times in a sloppy, disjointed game .We need to stop with the infractions, plain and simple, Lions coach Jim Caldwell said. Thats my job. Ill get those guys straightened out in that area.Tennessee (1-1) returns home for what figures to be a winnable game next weekend against Oakland. The Titans also have Cleveland and Miami on the schedule next month.Of course, fans of those teams probably look at Tennessee much the same way -- as a chance to pick up a win. The Titans were far from perfect Sunday, and they could have been blown out if it werent for Detroits penalties and mistakes.We needed something, Mularkey said. We were really chugging, but we werent gelling like we needed to until those last couple drives that we needed.VETERAN PRAISEJohnsons touchdown at the end was his only catch of the game. The 35-year-old receiver has four receptions on the season, and he likes what hes seeing from Mariota, who was dealing with cramping during the second half.It doesnt surprise me what he was able to do during that drive, Johnson said. Hes a very tough player, and I knew that he wasnt going to just come out of that game just because he was cramping. He had a great performance.NEW ADDITONSThe Lions wasted opportunities for more points, but theyre getting good production from new acquisitions Marvin Jones and Anquan Boldin. Jones had eight catches for 118 yards Sunday, and Boldin had four receptions for 48 yards, including a 24-yard touchdown.If those two can keep that up, Detroits passing game should be in solid shape even after losing Calvin Johnson to retirement.DOUBLE THREATTennessees DeMarco Murray had 89 yards on only 12 rushing attempts. If you take out a 67-yard run, thats not a great average, but he also added a team-high seven catches for 56 yards.STEP BACKAmeer Abdullah and Theo Riddick were impressive in the season opener for the Lions, raising the possibility that Detroits running game could be much improved this season.Sunday wasnt as good a showing. Abdullah had 38 yards on six carries, but left late in the second quarter with a foot injury. Riddick was held to 37 yards on 11 carries.Tennessees got a really good defense, did a nice job of being physical, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford said.But we had a bunch of yards and a bunch of points taken off the board from penalties and mistakes on our end.

LONDON -- Serena Williams has won so many Grand Slam matches that shes lost count.Then again, as she noted Sunday, its her losses that get a lot more attention nowadays.Looking much more ready for Week 2 at Wimbledon than she did in her previous outing, Williams joined Martina Navratilova as the only women with 300 victories at major tournaments in the Open era by overwhelming Annika Beck 6-3, 6-0 in 51 minutes to get to the fourth round.Every time I step out on the court, if I dont win, its major national news, Williams said a day after her counterpart in the mens draw, No. 1 and defending champion Novak Djokovic, was ousted. But if I do win, its just like a small tag in the corner.Pushed to three sets her last time out, Williams was about as dominant as can be against her 43rd-ranked German opponent. Nearly perfect, even.Williams won the last 17 points she served. She won 24 of the last 28 points overall. She accumulated 25 winners to two for Beck.Afterward, the six-time Wimbledon champion was asked whether she knew she had reached a milestone by getting her 300th Grand Slam match win, breaking a tie with Chris Evert for second place behind Navratilovas total of 306.No. Was it? Cool. Oh, nice, the 34-year-old American said with a laugh. I had no idea. Thats awesome, right? Thats good, right?Shes now 300-42, an .877 winning percentage, and will go for No. 301 right away: All 16 mens and womens fourth-round matches are scheduled for Monday, when Williams faces two-time major champion Svetlana Kuznetsova.Yes, thanks to sun on Sunday, the tournament is all caught up after persistent rain left a backlog of matches. This was only the fourth time since The Championships, as theyre called around these parts, began 139 years ago that matches were played on the middle Sunday.On the other three occasions -- 1991, 1997, 2004 -- fans lined up overnight to buy tickets that normally are so difficult, and expensive, to come by, creating a loud festival of flag-waving, face-painted folks thrilled to be on-site for once. This time, seats could only be purchased online, and there was a far-less-vibrant vibe than in the past on what was known as Peoples Sunday.I thought it would feel really different, Williams said, asked to compare this day with an averagee one at the grass-court Grand Slam, but it didnt feel really different.ddddddddddddIf anything, this middle Sunday was oddly subdued. Silent, even. Arenas were filled with rows and rows of unclaimed green chairs. Spectators applauded politely, if at all. Walkways around the grounds were easy to traverse.Strange feeling, a little bit, said No. 7 Richard Gasquet, who helped give France four men in the round of 16 at Wimbledon for the first time since 1929, because ... I dont see many people around.His next opponent is another member of that rare quartet, No. 12 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who erased a two-set deficit, then saved a match point, en route to edging No. 18 John Isner of the United States 19-17 in a fifth set that lasted more than 2 hours all by itself.Its good to be alive, said Tsonga, now 6-0 in five-setters at the All England Club.They played three sets before being halted because of darkness Saturday night and finished Sunday.In other mens matches, No. 32 Lucas Pouille of France got past 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro 6-7 (4), 7-6 (6), 7-5, 6-1; 2010 Wimbledon runner-up Tomas Berdych defeated 19-year-old Alexander Zverev 6-3, 6-4, 4-6, 6-1; No. 15 Nick Kyrgios eliminated No. 22 Feliciano Lopez 6-3, 6-7 (2), 6-3, 6-4 to set up a showdown against his pal Andy Murray, who is seeded No. 2 and won the 2013 title; and Jiri Vesely defeated No. 31 Joao Sousa 6-2, 6-2, 7-5.The 13th-seeded Kuznetsova advanced with a 6-7 (1), 6-2, 8-6 victory over No. 18 Sloane Stephens. Other womens winners included No. 21 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Elena Vesnina and Ekaterina Makarova. The woman who ended Williams bid for a calendar-year Grand Slam in the U.S. Open semifinals last September, Roberta Vinci, failed to put up much of a challenge in a 6-3, 6-4 loss to No. 27 CoCo Vandeweghe.Vandeweghe won 24 of 28 first-serve points and 14 of 17 points when she went to the net, improving to 11-1 on grass this season.Past month or almost two months, said Vandeweghe, a 2015 Wimbledon quarterfinalist, Ive been doing a good job of rising to the occasion.---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at http://twitter.com/HowardFendrich ' ' '
