Nashville, TN – In Week 15 of the 2013 season, the Tennessee Titans hosted the Arizona Cardinals at Nissan Stadium in a game that went to overtime. Despite storming back from a 17-point fourth quarter deficit, the Titans’ rally fell short as Cardinals kicker Jay Feely connected on the game-winning 41-yard field goal in overtime to push Arizona past Tennessee, 37-34.
Trailing 34-17 with 3:12 remaining, wide receiver Michael Preston kickstarted the Titans’ comeback with his first touchdown of the game, a 10-yard strike from quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

After kicker Rob Bironas’ 24-yard field goal made it a one possession game with 52 seconds remaining, safety Daimion Stafford successfully recovered an onside kick attempt, giving the Titans the ball at their own 46-yard line.
Five plays later, Fitzpatrick sent the game to overtime after finding Preston in the end zone for the second time that quarter.
The tying eight-yard touchdown with 10 seconds left in regulation marked Fitzpatrick’s fourth on the day as he finished 36 of 58 passing for 402 yards and two interceptions.
Wide receiver Kendall Wright turned in his best performance of the season, recording 12 receptions for 150 yards, both of which were career highs. He also caught two key passes on the Titans’ final drive in regulation to set up Preston’s game-tying touchdown.
