NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Titans and Texans have each given each other a free touchdon 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 a 72-yard touchdown catch.

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?
