TAMPA, Fla.: Baker Mayfield threw for 278 yards and two touchdowns Sunday to help the Tampa Bay Buccaneers stop a four-game losing streak with a 20-6 victory over the Tennessee Titans.

Mayfield completed 18 of 29 passes and shrugged off a first-quarter interception to end Tampa Bay’s longest skid since 2019.
Tennessee (3-6) lost for the fourth time in five games following a 2-2 start.
Levis led a field goal drive on Tennessee’s first possession but finished 19 of 39 for 199 yards in his third pro start.
An injury-weakened offensive line struggled to protect the rookie, and Levis got little help from a running game that produced 42 yards on 16 carries.
Nick Folk kicked field goals of 38 and 35 yards for the Titans, who haven’t won a road game since a prime-time victory at Green Bay last Nov. 17.
Levis fell to 1-2 as a starter. In his three starts, the 33rd overall pick has thrown for 699 yards, four TDs and two interceptions.
Evans’ TD catch put the Bucs up 17-3 late in the third quarter.
Titans: With LT Nicholas Petit-Frere already out after being placed on injured reserve, the Titans played without two starting offensive linemen.
Buccaneers: CB Carlton Davis III and LG Matt Feiler were inactive. CB Jamel Dean cleared concussion protocol and started.
Titans: Remain on the road next Sunday against AFC South rival Jacksonville, finishing a stretch of three consecutive games.
Buccaneers: Play four of their next five on the road, beginning at San Francisco next Sunday.
