Texans...29 Dolphins...28

October 13, 2008|From the Associated Press

HOUSTON -- The Houston Texans learned last week that they have to play to the very end. This week that lesson paid off.

Matt Schaub had passes intercepted on Houston's first two possessions, but ran three yards for a touchdown with three seconds left, leading the Texans to a 29-28 victory over the Miami Dolphins.

The Dolphins (2-3) had knocked down consecutive passes in the end zone before Schaub ran for the score. The two-point conversion failed, but Houston had enough points.

That drive was kept alive when Andre Johnson caught a 23-yard pass on fourth and 10.

Houston (1-4) got its first win in dramatic fashion a week after blowing a 17-point fourth-quarter lead in a 31-27 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
