Football: Ravens beat Texans in overtime, 34-28

By Associated Press

HOUSTON (AP) — Joe Flacco was clicking, the defense was dominating and even the special teams scored a touchdown.

The Baltimore Ravens seemed to be rolling to an easy victory in Houston on Monday night, then nearly let it all slip away.

Luckily for the Ravens, the Texans are inept at finishing games.

Josh Wilson intercepted Matt Schaub's pass and returned it 12 yards for a touchdown in overtime, lifting the Ravens to a 34-28 win over Houston.

Baltimore (9-4) stayed one game behind Pittsburgh in the AFC North despite blowing a 28-7 lead in the second half.

"There's always plays that define where you go," linebacker Ray Lewis said. "For us to get that win the way we got it, I'm telling you, if you're not happy, there's something wrong with you."

Schaub threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Andre Johnson and a 2-point conversion to Jacoby Jones with 21 seconds left in regulation to cap the unlikely rally.

Schaub finished 31 of 62 for 393 yards and three touchdowns, but the effort counted for nothing. Houston (5-8) has lost six of its last seven and will almost certainly miss the playoffs again.

Coach Gary Kubiak hardly knew what to say to his team.
