The Jaguars led 34-20 in the fourth quarter before the Texans' defense finally decided to show up. The Texans scored on two drives and the defense came up big, holding the Jaguars to just 14 yards on their final two drives of the fourth quarter to give Matt Schaub and the offense a chance to come up big.
The Texans' passing game responded accordingly. Schaub connected with tight end Garrett Graham for his second touchdown reception of the game to tie it at 34-34. The Texans had a chance to end the game after four quarters but Shanye Graham missed a 47-yard field goal attempt in the closing seconds, which sent the game to overtime.
Winners: Andre Johnson had his best game of the year. He caught 14 passes for 273 yards and a touchdown to more than double his best yardage output of the year so far.
Losers: Jacksonville Jaguars fans everywhere thought they were getting an early Christmas present when they were leading 34-20 in the fourth quarter. But then the Texans remembered they wanted to stay on top of the AFC and cruelly delivered a lump of coal when the Jaguars choked this one away in the fourth quarter to allow the Texans to force overtime.
Stat of the game: Justin Blackmon and Andre Johnson each finished with over 200 yards, the first time in NFL history that two receivers have eclipsed that yardage mark in the same game.
Fantasy studs and duds: Anyone associated with the Texans passing game had a fantastic day. Schaub threw for over 500 yards and five touchdowns and Andre Johnson had 273 yards on 14 receptions and a touchdown. For the Jaguars, Blackmon had a great game as well, finishing with 236 yards and a touchdown. Arian Foster did no favors to fantasy managers everywhere as he gained just 77 rushing yards and was held out of the end zone all game.
Odds/gambling: The Texans didn't quite cover the 16-point spread.
Injury info: Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert left the game with an elbow injury early in the game and was replaced by Chad Henne.
