Houston Texans Outduel Jacksonville Jaguars In Overtime Thriller

In one of the most entertaining games of week 11, the Houston Texans edged the Jacksonville Jaguars in a high-scoring overtime thriller. Houston capped off the impressive win with a 48-yard touchdown pass from Matt Schaub to Andre Johnson. The game-winning score put the finishing touches on Johnson’s career day.

Johnson finished the game with 14 catches for an incredible 273 yards and a touchdown.

For the Jaguars, they should be commended for putting up a fight that none of us saw coming. Jacksonville gave Houston everything they could ask for and just came up short.

The Jags were lead by Chad Henne, who came off the bench to throw for 354 yards and four touchdowns. It is the first time in Henne’s career that he threw for four touchdowns in a game. In fact, during his time with the Miami Dolphins, Henne never even tossed three scores in a single outing.

Rookie wide receiver Justin Blackmon also had the best game of his young career by hauling in seven catches for 236 yards, including an 81-yard touchdown.

The Texans became the first team in NFL history to score twice in overtime.
