Tennessee Titans Carried on the Legs of the Kicker Rob Bironas

“Have you ever seen anything like that?’’ Kerry Collins asked after the Titans beat the Texans 38-36 on Sunday. “I’d have to say that is probably the craziest game I have ever been involved in.’’

The veteran quarterback ran off the Reliant Stadium turf to chants of “Kerry, Kerry, Kerry’’ from a small pocket of Titans fans. Most Texans fans had left before the nutty ending, but those who remained watched their team rally from a 32-7 fourth quarter deficit, take the lead with 57 seconds to play, then lose the game in the final ticks.

Collins, who started and went the distance in place of the injured Young, engineered a drive that put Rob Bironas in position to provide the game-winning points with a 29-yard field goal — his NFL-record eighth field goal of the day.
