What Happened: A Deshaun Watson pass attempt was tipped by a defender and fell incomplete. The Titans were down by 7, not 8 or 9. Tennessee then successfully executed a two-minute drill, and kicked the extra point to tie the score. In overtime, the Titans won the toss and drove down the field for a touchdown; the Texans never got the ball.
The Criticism: “Come on, Romeo! Take the 8-point lead. Then the Titans will have to score, make a 2-pointer, and even then you’re still tied.”
The Excuse: “I wanted to go ahead and get the 2 points,” Crennel told reporters. “It felt like that would kind of put it out of reach for them, and if we would have gotten it, we would have been in much better shape.”
