VIDEO: Derrick Henry gives Titans the OT victory over Texans to cap off monster day
The Tennessee Titans completed a Week 6 comeback victory at home against the AFC South division rival Houston Texans, with star running back Derrick Henry finding the daylight in the end zone in overtime to give the Titans their fifth win.
Taking a direct snap on a play in which quarterback Ryan Tannehill lined up in the slot, the 6-foot-3, 247-pound back bulldozed his way around the Texans’ defensive line, pushing his way through outside linebacker Brennan Scarlett for the score.

The Titans led at two different points by two-touchdown margins before the Texans took the lead in the fourth quarter by seven. The Texans attempted a two-point conversion following Brandin Cooks’ touchdown reception that would have sealed the game for Houston. By failing to convert, the Texans held only a seven-point advantage, which gave Tennessee the chance to tie the score.
An A.J. Brown touchdown reception in the final seconds of regulation from Tannehill then tied the game at 36-all, sending the game to OT and setting up Henry’s heroics.
Henry finished with 212 rushing yards on 22 carries, scoring two touchdowns on the ground for the Titans. Tennessee is now 5-0 on the season.
