The Houston Texans got their game to overtime and once again, won. The Texans won their first ever Thanksgiving Day game over the Detroit Lions 34-31.
Texans Kicker Shayne Graham knocked down a 32-yard field goal to win the game with 2:21 left in OT.
The Texans were also the beneficiaries of a controversial action by Detroit Lions Head Coach Jim Schwartz. According to NFL.com:
Schwartz threw a challenge flag when Houston’s Justin Forsett scored on an 81-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. Replays showed Forsett was down near midfield, but Schwartz negated the automatic review by challenging the play and was called for unsportsmanlike conduct.
Something tells me a call like this won’t happen again!
Matthew Schaub was 29 of 48 passing for 315 yards and a touchdown. The TD pass was caught by Owen Daniels. Daniels had four receptions for 20 yards. Arian Foster carried the ball 20 times for 102 yards and two touchdowns. Forsett had the one controversial TD run, and also had five carries for 87 yards.
Shayne Graham made a 45 yard field goal during the third quarter.
The win moved the Texans to 10-1. Next up will be the Tennessee Titans in Nashville on Dec. 2.
