SEATTLE - Chris Johnson set the NFL record for yards from scrimmage in a season on Sunday, the first of two league milestones he reached in the Tennessee Titans' season finale.

The second-year running back caught a pass in the flat for a 9-yard gain in the second quarter Sunday at Seattle to break Marshall Faulk's record of 2,429 scrimmage yards set in 1999.

Titans coach Jeff Fisher got the ball from a game official and tossed it to a team staffer.

In the fourth quarter, Johnson became the sixth player in NFL history to rush for 2,000 yards in a season.
