Houston Texans kicker Kris Brown missed a 49-yard field goal attempt with just seconds remaining, giving the Tennessee Titans the 20-17 win Monday night at Reliant Stadium. Titans QB Vince Young threw for 116 yards while rushing for 73, leaving 29 carries and 151 yards for stand-out RB Chris Johnson. Young has led his squad to 4-0 since taking over at starting QB, improving the once struggling Titans to 4-6.
“I think you get a sense this game could have gone in either direction,” said Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher. “I can’t say how much it means to us to come back in here and get back on track again and fortunately get a win.”
Titans kicker Rob Bironas really came through in the clutch with two 50+ field goals to hold off the Texans. Two years ago he set an NFL record with eight field goals in Houston. “I always feel good down here … I like Houston,” he said. “I don’t think Houston likes me too much.” The Titans will next face the Arizona Cardinals Sunday, November 29th at 4:15 PM. Houston is set to rematch the Indianapolis Colts on the 29th as well at 1:00 PM. The Texans will be hungry for a win after losing their last two by three to the Colts and Titans.
