Jaguars fall to Texans in OT despite 34-20 lead in 4th quarter

Troy Taormina-US PRESSWIRE

The Jaguars had a chance, but blew their lead over Houston in overtime.

One of three simultaneous overtime games this afternoon, the Jaguars and Texans had a 4th quarter and overtime period for the ages.

Jacksonville was up 34-20 with under six minutes remaining in regulation, but quarterback Matt Shaub would not be denied. Shaub threw two touchdown passes in the closing minutes to tie the game at 34, and led the Texans into overtime.

In the extra period, the Texans scored first with a 25 yard field goal, but the Jaguars answered with a 33 yarder of their own.

With two minutes and change, the Jaguars were faced with a fourth-and-10, and elected to go for it ... An incomplete pass ensued, and the Texans capitalized after the turnover on downs.

Along the way, Texans safety Danieal Manning had an unfortunate experience:

Our thoughts go out to any future children that Manning might be planning on having. No one should have to go through that. Ever.
