September 29, 2008|From the Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Josh Scobee won a second straight game for the Jacksonville Jaguars, with plenty of help again from David Garrard.

Scobee's 37-yard field goal in overtime gave the Jaguars a 30-27 victory over the winless Houston Texans.

Scobee made a 51-yarder with four seconds remaining last week to beat Indianapolis 23-21. Garrard put Jacksonville (2-2) in position for the winner against the Colts and did the same a week later. He completed a 24-yard pass to Matt Jones on third down to get to the Houston 41, then found Greg Jones for 22 more yards.

Scobee lined up two plays later and drilled it down the middle. He got a high-five from holder Adam Podlesh.

Garrard was 23 for 32 for 236 yards. He also ran for 41 yards. Matt Schaub threw for 307 yards and three touchdowns for Houston (0-3).
