Saying Houston Texans quarterback, Matt Schaub had a phenomenal day is an understatement. (Of course I am going against him this week in fantasy football!) Matt threw for 527 yards and five touchdowns. His last touchdown pass was a game-winning 48-yard completion to Andre Johnson which put an exclamation point on his day in hard fought overtime game. Andre Johnson had a fantastic day as well. Johnson had 273 receiving yards and a touchdown. His performance  ranks ninth in most receiving yards in NFL history. Even though Matt and Andre put up great numbers, the game did go into overtime so the Jacksonville Jaguars did put up at fight. During the game Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert got hurt and Chad Henne came into the game. the former Miami Dolphin did the best he could against a tough Texans defense. Henne threw for 354 yards and four touchdowns. Jacksonville rookie wide receiver Justin Blackmon had one touchdown and had 236 receiving yards. Watching this game it looked as if the 8-1 Texans were looking past this game against the 1-8 Jaguars and thinking about the quick turn around game on Thanksgiving Day against the Lions. The Texans did dodge a bullet and are 9-1 for the season and look to try and vie for the number one seed in the AFC.
