They didn't draw the play up that way, but the Texans will take their first quarter touchdown.
Davis Mills scrambled to his right on 3rd-and-Goal at the Titans 6-yard line, fumbled the ball into the end zone, and Rex Burkhead pounced on it for a touchdown. After Ka'imi Fairbairn's successful extra point try, the Texans were knotted up, 7-7, with the Titans at Nissan Stadium in Nashville.
The Burkhead score was his second of the season, and it capped an 11-play drive that went 75 yards and lasted 6:14.
On the possession, running back Royce Freeman carried five times for 16 yards. Mills' got the Texans into the Goal-to-go situation when he completed a 30-yard pass up the right side to tight end Jordan Akins. Earlier in the drive, Jeff Driskel tossed a first down pass of 15 yards to Brevin Jordan.
The game-tying score came with 2:44 remaining in the opening quarter.
