The Texans have outlasted the Jaguars in overtime 43-37, winning on a 48-yard touchdown by Andre Johnson. The game featured a combined 905 passing yards by both quarterbacks in a game many thought would be won on the ground.

When Chad Henne replaced Blaine Gabbert, the Jaguars discovered their first round wide receiver Justin Blackmon was as good as advertised. He caught just seven of this 13 targets, but for an amazing 236 yards.

Matt Schaub ended up exceeding Henne's 354 yards with 527 yards of his own. Once the Texans went to multiple receiver sets in the fourth quarter, the game shifted back in Houston's favor. At the end of regulation, they could only stop themselves as Shayne Graham's game-winning field goal attempt barely made it past the line of scrimmage.

The teams may have swapped three-pointers in overtime, but the momentum had clearly shifted in Houston's favor. After Jacksonville scored their last touchdown, they got off 21 plays to 45 for Houston. In effect, the Texans' offense wore down the Jaguars defense.

The pass caught by Andre Johnson was a simple grab-and-go. But those 31 year-old legs still have plenty left in them as he outraced the shell-shocked secondary to the end zone.

On the flight back to Florida, the Jaguars will be left to wonder what might have been. And just who is their starting quarterback going into their next game against the Tennessee Titans.

Houston has little time to bask in the glory with three short days to prepare for their Thanksgiving Day game against the Detroit Lions. And hope they do not get served up like that holiday bird.

Jaguars: 37
