The Tennessee Titans held Houston and its many offensive playmakers in check for most of the day on Sunday.
With the game on the line late, the overworked defense simply couldn't stop the Texans anymore.
Rookie DeAndre Hopkins grabbed a 3-yard touchdown pass in overtime and the Texans rallied for a 30-24 win.
With Andre Johnson out after being shaken up in the fourth quarter, Hopkins reached above Jason McCourty and pulled in the pass from Matt Schaub to give Houston the victory.
''They rose up when they had to and made some big-time catches and that won the game for them,'' Tennessee coach Mike Munchak said.
The Texans (2-0) needed a franchise-record 21-point comeback to win their opener at San Diego 31-28.
On Sunday, they charged back from an eight-point, fourth-quarter deficit against the Titans (1-1).
''It's hard,'' Munchak said. ''It's a feeling where you want to tell them: `Remember what this feels like, we don't want to be in this position again.'''
