Titans, Texans giving huge TDs away

Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Titans and Texans have given each other a free touchdown in the first half.

Chris Johnson was split wide left and went uncovered and Kerry Collins quickly got him the ball and watched him outrace everyone for a 69-yard score.

The giveaway became less tragic when Houston offset it with a similar play. Nick Harper let Andre Johnson go, but Michael Griffin appeared to have bitten on play action and Johnson flew by him and raced under for a 72-yard touchdown.

The two huge plays felt almost like offsetting penalties.

We're now knotted at 21-21. Next team to give up another free TD loses?
