Despite a 15-point spread in favor of the Texans, the two teams finished the 60 minutes of regulation deadlocked in a 34-34 tie. The Texans had the opportunity to win with a long field goal attempt by Shayne Graham, but the kicker shanked the kick wide left.
In the fourth quarter the Jaguars struck first with an 81-yard touchdown pass from Chad Henne to Justin Blackmon to take a 34-20 lead. It was Henne's fourth touchdown of the game and gave Blackmon the third most yards in a game in Jaguars franchise history with 221.
However, the Texans rallied back with two long sustained drives that were assisted by the Jaguars offense completely stopping any momentum it entered the final minutes of the game with.
The Texans will receive the ball to begin the overtime and need a touchdown to win it. A field goal will give the Jaguars an opportunity to tie.
