HOUSTON (AP) -- Matt Hasselbeck threw two touchdown passes and the Tennessee Titans kept alive their playoff hopes with a 23-22 victory over the Houston Texans on Sunday. The Titans (9-7) earned their first winning record since 2008 in Mike Munchak's first season, but their postseason fate depended on the outcome of later games in Cincinnati, Oakland and Denver. Tennessee got some early help when the New York Jets lost in Miami. Houston (10-6) will head into its first postseason on a three-game losing streak. The Texans were locked into the No. 3 seed in the AFC playoffs and coach Gary Kubiak played mostly reserves in the second half. Rookie starter T.J. Yates left the game after one series and was replaced by Jake Delhomme. The Texans would not say if Yates was injured. The Texans pulled within a point late in the game on a 5-yard TD pass by Delhomme, but failed on a 2-point conversion that would have won it.
