HOUSTON _ It wasn't exactly a thing of beauty, but given their situation, the Tennessee Titans will take it.
It took a botched two-point conversion snap with 14 seconds to play to allow the Titans to somehow escape with a 23-22 victory over the Houston Texans.
The Titans got a late 23-yard touchdown from Nate Washington with 4:31 to play to go up 23-16, but Ahmard Hall fumbled the ball after a catch on a hit by Tim Dobbins and the Texans cashed in a for a touchdown to Bryant Johnson.
Tennessee improved to 9-7, but needs the Cincinnati Bengals to lose to the Baltimore Ravens and both Denver and Oakland to win their games in the late afternoon to reach the postseason. One scenario went by the boards when the New York Jets lost at Miami.
