Texans vs. Lions: Houston's Biggest Winners and Losers from Week 12
Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

The Houston Texans kicked off Thanksgiving Day in dramatic fashion with a comeback win over the Detroit Lions 34-31 in overtime. The win marks the team's second overtime victory in back-to-back weeks.

Houston hurt itself with poor pass defense and penalties, but managed to hang on for dear life and escape Detroit with a win. The offense quietly kept pace with Matt Stafford and Detroit's explosive passing attack.

The Texans trailed for most of the game and seemed to be one play away from their second loss of the season too often, but the team kept punching back.

Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson pulled their clutch act yet again, connecting on crucial third and fourth downs in the second half and overtime.

A game-tying 97-yard touchdown drive in the fourth quarter keyed the Texans' comeback win. After both teams touched the football multiple times in overtime, the Texans finally put together a back-breaking drive that put them in range for Shayne Graham to kick the game-winning field goal.

Here's a look at a few of the biggest winners and losers from Houston's stunning overtime win over the Lions.
