Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - For the second time in less than a week Houston
went to overtime, and for the second time, the team pulled out a win. After
missing a 51-yard field goal earlier in the extra session, Shayne Graham
booted a 32-yarder with 2:21 left to give the Houston Texans a thrilling 34-31
win over the Detroit Lions at Ford Field. Last Sunday, Andre Johnson caught a
48-yard score in overtime as the Texans took a 43-37 win against the
Jacksonville Jaguars. This week he accounted for 188 yards on nine catches as
the Texans (10-1) won a franchise-record fifth straight game as the visitors.
Matt Schaub, coming off a 527-yard, five-touchdown game against Jacksonville,
passed for 315 yards with one touchdown and one interception on 29-of-48
attempts while Arian Foster had 20 carries for 102 yards and two scores for
Houston, which has won five straight overall. Matthew Stafford went 31-for-61
with 441 yards and two touchdowns while Calvin Johnson caught eight passes for
140 yards and a score for the Lions (4-7), who have dropped three straight and
nine consecutive Thanksgiving games.
