It's Halftime: What's Happened so Far in Titans-Texans


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Titans and Texans are tied 10-10 at halftime here at Nissan Stadium. A look at what's happened so far:

Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota completed 9 of-13 passes for 96 yards, and he ran for a touchdown.

Running back DeMarco Murray leads the Titans with seven carries for 37 yards. Running back Derrick Henry had three carries for 30 yards in the first half.

The Texans took a 3-0 lead on a 23-yard field goal by kicker Ka'imi Fairbairn, which followed a fumble on a punt return by Titans return man Adoree' Jackson.

Tennessee's first possession ended with a missed 40-yard field goal by kicker Ryan Succop.

The Texans then took a 10-0 lead on a four-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Tom Savage to tight end Stephen Anderson, which came with 10:40 remaining in the second quarter.

But the Titans rallied back.

The Titans cut the lead to 10-7 on a nine-yard touchdown run by Mariota, which capped a 10-play, 75 yard drive. Henry put the Titans inside the 10 on a 24-yard run, and the drive was kept alive on a 13-yard pass from Mariota to Murray on third-and-7 from the Houston 46.

On Mariota's touchdown, he faked the ball to Henry, and then sprinted to left corner of the end zone. He picked up a key block from tight end Jonnu Smith at the goalline.

The Titans tied the game 10-10 at halftime on a 43-yard field goal by Succop, which capped a four-play, 37-yard drive with three seconds before halftime.
