Titans 26, Texans 20, OT

Updated:
HOUSTON (AP) Vince Young and the Titans did it again, spectacularly.

Young ran for a 39-yard touchdown in overtime Sunday to give Tennessee a 26-20 win over the Houston Texans for their a straight comeback victory.

Young ran into the end zone virtually untouched and then jumped into the stands to the open arms of a throng of burnt orange-clad fans. He then blew kisses and waved to the crowd.

The former University of Texas star who grew up just 6 miles from the stadium once again showed up the team that passed him over in the draft.

Two weeks ago, the Titans (6-7) rallied from a 21-0 deficit in the final 9 1/2 minutes to beat the Giants. Last week, Rob Bironas' 60-yard field goal in the final seconds beat Indianapolis.

David Carr and the Texans (4-9) had a chance to regain the lead late in regulation, but stalled and settled for a 46-yard field goal by Kris Brown that tied it at 20 with 2:09 remaining. The Texans got the ball back in the final moments of the 4th quarter, but chose to run out the clock.

Young was 19-29 for 218 yards passing and he ran for another 86 yards.

The Titans trailed 14-13 before Young engineered a 15-play, 88-yard drive ending with a 2-yard run by Travis Henry to give Tennessee its first lead of the 2nd half, 20-17.

Young and Drew Bennett earlier connected on a 39-yard pass that got the Titans to the Houston 21. Henry cut to the outside and ran for the 9-yard touchdown three plays later to cut Houston's lead to 14-13.
