Texans Vs. Bucs: Matt Schaub Throws 80-Yard Bomb, Records Fall

The Texans jumped to a quick 6-0 lead when Matt Schaub found Jacoby Jones for an 80-yard touchdown on Houston’s first play from scrimmage. Neil Rackers missed the ensuing PAT, but let’s take a moment and let Nick Scurfield of HoustonTexans.com put Schaub’s pass in perspective:

That 80-yard TD was the longest: pass of Schaub’s career, catch of Jones’ career, TD catch in Texans history #GoTexans

The Texans had a chance to add to their lead, but Schaub threw an interception in the red zone on their next possession. Hey, you can’t be perfect all of the time.

Update: It wasn't an interception after all! The Texans challenged the ruling on the field and won. They still had to settle for a field goal, though.
