Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans final score: Texans hold on for OT win, 30-24

The Texans came from behind again and needed a few extra minutes to win the game. But, let’s got to the end of regulation. Literally, the clock read zero and yet we spent a good 10 minutes dealing with gameplay. Look:

The Texans went into overtime to beat the Titans, and overtime only came after one of the craziest late-game sequences you’ll ever see, as Texans kicker Randy Bullock got four tries at a game-winning field goal: The first time, Bullock’s kick was good, but Titans coach Mike Munchak had called timeout to ice the kicker, and the play had been waved off. On Bullock’s second try the field goal was blocked, but the Titans were offside, so the Texans got another chance. On the third try, the kick was wide left, but Munchak had called timeout to ice the kicker again. The fourth try was the one that finally counted, and it bounced off the upright and missed.

I felt bad for Bullock. He probably wore his leg out. The kick needed some distance and, as you saw, his first kick would’ve sealed the deal. After that, good grief. But hey, his team won in the end so it’s cool. It was just a bizarre ending. Here’s the events that led to that FG attempt…or should I say, attempts:

halftime, the Texans appearing to take control early in the fourth quarter and then the Titans taking yet another lead. Just after the two-minute warning Arian Foster scored a 1-yard touchdown and then scored a two-point conversion to tie the game.

It was a good game if you missed it, bro. Texans have been playing with fire, but for now, they’re winning. Eventually, the luck has to run out, right? At least they know how to win games against the odds.
