After Henry’s huge day, Titans beat Texans on banked FG

Derrick Henry rushed for a career-high 250 yards and became the eighth player in NFL history to eclipse 2,000 yards in a season, and Sam Sloman banked home a 37-yard field goal on the final play as the Tennessee Titans clinched the AFC South with a 41-38 win over the host Houston Texans on Sunday.Ryan Tannehill totaled three touchdowns, and his 6-yard run with 1:47 left capped a 19-play, 75-yard drive that gave the Titans (11-5) a 38-35 lead.The Texans (4-12), who erased a 16-point second-half deficit by scoring touchdowns on four consecutive drives, countered with a 58-yard drive that culminated in a game-tying, 51-yard field goal from Ka’imi Fairbairn with 18 seconds remaining.But on the first snap of the ensuing series, Tannehill connected with A.J. Brown for a 52-yard pass play, setting the stage for Sloman, whose kick caromed off the right upright.Henry became the first player in the Super Bowl era to rush for 200-plus yards in three consecutive games against the same team. He finished the season with 2,027 yards and 17 touchdowns after scoring twice against the Texans’ 31st-ranked rush defense.Tannehill completed 18 of 27 passes for 216 yards. Brown finished with 10 receptions for 151 yards and a touchdown.Tennessee will host the Baltimore Ravens in the opening round of the AFC playoffs next weekend.
