As the NFL's 1 p.m. ET games neared their end on Sunday, three of the nine early games needed extra time to decide the winner. The Detroit Lions had the most dramatic path to overtime. The Tennessee Titans were up 20-9 at halftime, but the Lions clawed their way back into the game. With back-up quarterback Shaun Hill in the game, the Lions scored twice in the last 18 seconds of regulation, including a Hail Mary pass that was tipped by the Titans but caught by Titus Young for a touchdown. The drama continued as the Titans scored a field goal. Instead of going for the tie and keeping the game going, the Lions went for it on fourth down. Hill was stopped at fourth-and-one, giving the Tennessee its first win of the season. Miami Dolphins kicker Dan Carpenter pushed his team into overtime with the New York Jets with a 41-yard field goal with 16 seconds left on the clock. In overtime, Jets kicker Nick Folk had a field goal blocked. However, the Dolphins called a last-second timeout just before Folk kicked that negated their own block. Folk nailed it on the second try to put the Jets ahead for good.
