Houston Texans' Andre Johnson and Jacksonville Jaguars' Derek Cox during their game at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas. Johnson scored the winning touchdown on a 48-yard screen pass as the Texans edged the Jaguars 43-37 in overtime to post their fourth consecutive NFL victory.

 

"Obviously, we struggled today," Houston coach Gary Kubiak said. "We gave up a lot of big plays defensively, we turned the ball over offensively, but we kept battling and we found a way to win the game another way."

 Jacksonville quarterback Chad Henne's pass was incomplete, giving Houston the ball. Schaub ended it soon after with a pass to Johnson who raced down the sideline for the winning score with just over two minutes to play.

Johnson finished with 14 catches for 273 yards, while Schaub threw for a career-high 527 yards with five touchdowns.

Houston now takes a 9-1 record into their next game on the US Thanksgiving holiday Thursday in Detroit.

Henne was impressive for the Jaguars, who have lost seven in a row and blew a 14-point fourth quarter lead in this one.

He replaced injured quarterback Blaine Gabbert in the opening quarter and finished with 354 yards and four touchdowns.

Brady completed 24-of-35 passes for 331 yards, while Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen each ran for fourth-quarter scores in the one-sided victory. It marked the fourth straight win for the Patriots.

 "(I'm) disappointed in myself for committing four turnovers on my part and two of those went for immediate touchdowns," said Luck.

Rodgers passed for 236 yards and an interception on 19-of-27 attempts with Randall Cobb and Jermichael Finley each catching touchdown passes.

"We just had to have this win," said Rodgers. "We knew it was a struggle and we didn't play our best on offense. But when we needed it, everyone came through and this is a big one."
