Ravens 34, Texans 28, OT

Ravens blow lead but pick OT winner

HOUSTON — Josh Wilson intercepted Matt Schaub's pass and returned it 12 yards for a touchdown in overtime, lifting the Ravens to a win over the Texans.

The Ravens stayed a game behind Pittsburgh in the AFC North despite squandering a 28-7 lead in the second half.

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

Baltimore lost fourth-quarter leads in each of its four losses and punted after its only offensive series of overtime. Houston started from its 12, and Schaub was trying to connect with Jones on second down when Wilson picked it off and ran into the end zone.

The Texans trailed 28-13 entering the fourth quarter before Jones capped a 99-yard drive with a 7-yard touchdown reception with 6 minutes remaining.

The Ravens punted after their drive stalled at the Houston 44 following an incomplete pass on third and 2 with about three minutes left to give the Texans the ball.

Johnson managed to keep his toes inbounds on a 5-yard touchdown that made it 28-26, and Jones grabbed the 2-point conversion to tie it.

David Reed had a 103-yard kickoff return to open the second half to give the Ravens a 28-7 lead.
