Final Score: Houston 30, Tennessee 24 (OT)

Houston,  TX  (Sports Network) -  Matt Schaub hit  DeAndre Hopkins in the back 
right  corner of  the end zone to lift  the Houston Texans to a 30-24 win over 
the Tennessee Titans in overtime. 

Houston  (2-0)  trailed 24-16 with just  over three minutes left, but drove 87 
yards  in eight  plays, capped by an  Arian Foster touchdown, to tie things up 
with 1:53 to play. 

After  forcing  a three-and-out,  Houston took  over on  its own 22-yard line. 
Schaub  hit Keshawn  Martin with  a  short pass,  and  he broke  a tackle  and 
scurried down the right sideline down to the Titans' 46. 

A  12-yard  completion to  Owen  Daniels  got  the  Texans within  field  goal 
distance. 

Randy  Bullock,  who had missed  a pair field goal  tries earlier in the game, 
lined up for the kick four times, and after having two stopped by timeouts and 
a  blocked try  erased by an offside  penalty, the rookie banged a his 46-yard 
try off the left upright, sending the game to over time. 

The Texans took over in the bonus period. Foster ripped off a 16-yard rush and 
Ben Tate followed with a 13-yard pickup to get deep into the Tennessee zone. 

A  25-yard completion  to Hopkins along the right sideline put the ball inside 
the  Titans' 1-yard  line.  Foster was  stood  up on  first  down and  Hopkins 
couldn't come up with Schaub's pass on second, but they went right back to the 
rookie  receiver on  third down for the game-winner, an over-the-shoulder grab 
in the corner. 

Schaub finished the game 26-for-48 passing for 298 yards, three touchdowns and 
a pair of interceptions and Hopkins hauled in seven passes for 117 yards and a 
score.  Tate led the  rushing attack with 93 yards on nine carries, and Foster 
rushed  for 79 yards and a score on 19 carries for Houston, which defeated the 
San Diego Chargers in the season-opener. 

Jake  Locker  completed 17-of-30 passes  for 148  yards and two touchdowns and 
Chris  Johnson  rushed  for 96  yards  for  the  Titans  (1-1), who  beat  the 
Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1.
