Aug. 23, 2014 ATLANTA (AP) -- Rookie Bishop Sankey's 3-yard touchdown run and 2-point conversion with 5:45 remaining gave Tennessee its first lead as the Titans rallied for a 24-17 preseason win over the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday night.

Sean Renfree led Atlanta to the Titans' 4-yard line but couldn't complete a fourth-and-2 pass to Julian Jones with 1:08 remaining.

Matt Ryan was sharp for Atlanta (1-2) as he threw first-half touchdown passes to Julio Jones and Devin Hester.
