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.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.

    The Heater

    SS Adeiny Hechavarria doesn't always look like he's going hard, but he showed impressive reactions Saturday in reversing field to catch a ball that clanked off the catwalk then firing to second to double up Guillermo Heredia on an attempt to tag up.

  5. Bucs journal: Simeon Rice gives master class on sacks to defensive ends
