Schaub Rallies Texans Past Jaguars, 43-37
HOUSTON (AP) – Tied in overtime with one of the NFL’s worst teams, the Houston Texans turned to their superstar to pull out the victory.
Schaub threw a career-high five touchdown passes, completed a franchise-record 43 passes and finished with 527 yards in the air, second most in NFL history. Warren Moon also threw for 527 yards for the Houston Oilers in December 1990 against Kansas City.
Norm Van Brocklin holds the record with 554 for the Rams in 1951.
Schaub completed his final 16 passes in regulation time to rally the Texans.
Johnson caught 14 passes for 273 yards, both career highs; the yardage was a team record. The Texans (9-1) won an overtime game for the first time at Reliant Stadium.
Chad Henne threw a career-high four touchdown passes in relief of injured Blaine Gabbert for the Jaguars (1-9). First-round pick Justin Blackmon finally had his breakout game, making seven catches for 236 yards. It was the first time in NFL history opposing players each had more than 200 yards receiving in the same game.
Blackmon caught Henne’s pass at midfield, shrugged off two defenders for a stunning 81-yard touchdown with 12:33 left in regulation to put Jacksonville up 34-20.
