HOUSTON, Nov. 18 (UPI) -- Andre Johnson rambled for a 48-yard touchdown on an overtime screen pass Sunday, giving the Houston Texans a 43-37 victory over Jacksonville.

The Texans took over around midfield after Jacksonville's Chad Henne couldn't complete a fourth-down pass and needed only two plays before Johnson's scoring reception handed them the victory.

Houston's Shayne Graham and Jacksonville's Josh Scobee each booted field goals in the extra frame to keep the game alive.

Johnson made 14 catches for 273 yards and Schaub finished with a career-high 527 passing yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions for the AFC South-leading Texans (9-1), who overcame a 14-point deficit in the fourth quarter en route to their fourth straight win.

Henne came in for an injured Blaine Gabbert and fired four TD passes for the Jaguars (1-9), ending with 354 passing yards.
