Tottenham came from behind to beat 10-man Hull to leave the Tigers with only one win in 11 Premier League matches.
Jake Livermore powered in from 25 yards for Hull before Hatem Ben Arfa missed a chance for a second from close range.
Hull midfielder Gaston Ramirez was shown a straight red card for kicking out at Jan Vertonghen after half-time.
Harry Kane pounced on a rebound to level, with Christian Eriksen winning the game from 20 yards to see Spurs climb into the top half.
It was cruel on Hull, who battled valiantly after Ramirez's needless red card, but leaves Steve Bruce's men just one point and two places above the relegation zone.
Tottenham went into the match on the back of their worst start to a Premier League season since 2008-09, losing a fourth home game against Stoke last time out.
In that campaign, Spurs replaced Juande Ramos with Harry Redknapp and recovered after a winless first eight matches to finish eighth.
Now, current manager Mauricio Pochettino will hope a third win in 10 league matches can prove a turning point.
