The Titans got on the scoreboard in the first quarter when they took advantage of a punt return by Dexter McCluster, who ran the ball back 48 yards from Shane Lechler's kick. Ryan Succop put three points up with a 35-yard field goal after the offense failed to convert on third down.
Houston's offense could get nothing going in the first quarter as Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for just 31 yards, as he endured pressure from the Titans defense when he was sacked for a 12-yard loss by Daimion Stafford.
The Texans got on the scoreboard when Randy Bullock fired a field goal through the posts from 30 yards. The visitors then scored a touchdown run as Arian Foster cut back to his right and used his speed to run all the way into the endzone for the 34-yard score.
Bullock added another field goal just before the break to put the Texans in command of the game after Fitzpatrick was sacked in the redzone.
