Andre Johnson scored the winning touchdown on a 48-yard screen pass as the Houston Texans edged the Jacksonville Jaguars 43-37 in overtime to post their fourth consecutive NFL victory on Sunday.

Houston kicker Shayne Graham booted a 25-yard field goal in the Texans' first overtime possession but the Jaguars' Josh Scobee answered with a 33-yard field goal of his own to keep the game going.

"Obviously, we struggled today," Houston coach Gary Kubiak said. "We gave up a lot of big plays defensively, we turned the ball over offensively, but we kept battling and we found a way to win the game another way."

The Jaguars had an opportunity to win the game when Derek Cox intercepted quarterback Matt Schaub and returned the ball to the Texans' 47.
