EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Ryan Fitzpatrick threw three touchdown passes and New York’s stingy defense stifled Marcus Mariota and the Tennessee Titans’ offense for most of the game as the Jets cruised to a 30-8 victory Sunday.

Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker and Bilal Powell each caught TD passes for the Jets (8-5), who stayed on track in the AFC playoff race with their first three-game winning streak since 2011.

Fitzpatrick, who has set a single-season career high with 25 touchdown throws, finished 21 of 36 for 263 yards. Chris Ivory ran for 101 yards on 22 carries, and Randy Bullock kicked three field goals. Muhammad Wilkerson had three sacks.

The lone highlight for the lowly Titans (3-10) came in the third quarter when Antonio Andrews took a direct snap and connected with Mariota for a 41-yard touchdown — the rookie quarterback’s first career reception.
