Titans vs. Texans 2013 game recap: Houston wins in overtime, 30-24

Scott Halleran

The Texans' kicker owes an apology to his teammates after nearly costing Houston a win.

Houston Texans kicker Randy Bullock needs to buy his offense dinner after they bailed out the kicker in overtime. Bullock missed three field goals, including a possible game-winner from 46 yards, in the Texans' 30-24 overtime win against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

With their kicker unable to connect, Houston's offense came through. Quarterback Matt Schaub found rookie DeAndre Hopkins for the game-winning touchdown from two yards out in overtime, giving Bullock a pass for tossing nine points down the drain.

Houston's ground attack was too much as Arian Foster and Ben Tate combined for 172 yards. It looked like the Texans would suffer a tough loss when Schaub threw a late interception, but his teammates were able to rally around the quarterback and pull them to victory.

Jake Locker passed for just 148 yards, but made completions when it mattered, throwing two critical touchdowns without turning the ball over. The Titans leaned on Chris Johnson for the bulk of their offense, and the star running back obliged with 96 yards on 25 carries.

Fantasy studs and duds

Arian Foster came on late in the game to finish with 79 yards and a touchdown.

DeAndre Hopkins had a huge day for owners in PPR leagues, as he caught 7 passes for 117 yards and a touchdown.

Did they cover?

The Texans were 7.5-point favorites, according to OddsShark. Their six-point win means they narrowly failed to cover.
