Texans 27, Titans 20

Win without Watt

HOUSTON — Will Fuller had never returned a punt for a touchdown at any level. Moments after he grabbed the first return of his NFL career, he knew that was about to change. "It was wide open," Fuller said. "It was probably one of the easiest touchdowns I've scored." His tiebreaking 67-yard dash helped the Texans proved they have more than J.J. Watt, the three-time defensive player of the year who is out for the season with a back injury. Houston broke up Marcus Mariota's pass to former Texan Andre Johnson on fourth down to end Tennessee's final drive.
