Tennessee Titans rally for comeback road win over Seattle Seahawks in OT

Randy Bullock kicked four field goals, including a 36-yarder with 4:50 remaining in overtime, as the Tennessee Titans rallied to defeat the host Seattle Seahawks 33-30 Sunday.

Derrick Henry rushed 35 times for 182 yards and three touchdowns — all in the second half — as the Titans (1-1) came back from a 14-point deficit in the fourth quarter.

Henry scored on a 60-yard run with 12:17 remaining to pull the Titans within 30-23 and plunged in from 1-yard out to tie the score with 24 seconds left in regulation.

The Titans kept Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson from his 100th regular-season victory. Wilson completed 22 of 31 passes for 343 yards and two touchdowns.

Wilson threw a 63-yarder to Tyler Lockett to give the Seahawks (1-1) a 10-6 lead with 6:34 left in the second quarter. He added a 68-yarder to Freddie Swain early in the fourth after the Titans had pulled within 24-16. Jason Myers missed the extra point, leaving Seattle with a 30-16 lead.

Ryan Tannehill completed 27 of 40 passes for 347 yards for the Titans and Julio Jones had six receptions for 128 yards.

Seattle’s Tyler Lockett totaled eight receptions for 178 yards and Chris Carson rushed for two touchdowns, though he was limited to 31 yards on 13 carries.

After Wilson’s strike to Lockett gave the Seahawks a 10-6 advantage, the Titans faced second-and-8 from their own 18-yard line when Alton Robinson sacked Tannehill for a 9-yard loss and forced a fumble recovered by teammate Kerry Hyder Jr. at the 6.

Chris Carson rushed for 4 yards on first down and then went up the middle for a 2-yard touchdown to make it 17-6 with 5:22 left in the half.

The Titans appeared to score on a 6-yard pass from Tannehill to Jones on their next possession, but a video review determined Jones’ foot was out of the back of the end zone and they had to settle for a 24-yard field goal by Bullock to make it 17-9 with 1:09 left in the half.

Wilson marched the Seahawks down the field and Carson scored on a 1-yard run with 17 seconds to go to give Seattle a 24-9 halftime lead. The Titans got within 24-16 on Henry’s 9-yard run with 10:46 left in the third.
