HOUSTON (AP) -Tennessee's Rob Bironas kicked an NFL-record eight field goals against the Houston Texans on Sunday.
The record-setting kick was also the winner, a 29-yarder as time expired that gave the Titans a 38-36 victory.
The previous record of seven field goals was held by Billy Cundiff, Chris Boniol, Rich Karlis and Jim Bakken.
Bironas also kicked two extra points and set the NFL record for most points by a kicker, with 26. Cundiff's 23 points on Sept. 15, 2003 was the previous high.
An interception by Keith Bulluck set up the tying kick, also a 29-yarder with 3:47 left in the game.
Bironas connected from 52, 25, 21, 30 and 28 yards in the first half as the Titans built a 22-7 lead. It was only the third time in franchise history a kicker booted at least five field goals in a game.
Al Del Greco kicked five against Philadelphia in 2000 and Roy Gerela did the same against Miami in 1969, when the Titans were the Houston Oilers.
