Texans miss another chance to take next step

The Saints have developed into one of the NFL’s elite teams by showing the knack for winning games they shouldn’t.

Houston is still trying to figure out how to win games it should.

That difference played itself out again Sunday in New Orleans, with the Saints somehow erasing a 26-17 deficit — and, later, a 33-32 disadvantage — en route to a thrilling 40-33 win over the Texans.

Houston had this game right where it wanted it. The Texans were moving the ball at will and doing a nice job limiting Drew Brees and the potent Saints’ attack. It all fell to pieces in the final 15 minutes, though.


Make that the final 10 minutes, actually. Houston scored early in the fourth quarter to go up nine and still held that 26-17 edge when Brees hit Jimmy Graham for a TD with 9:30 left. On the next possession, Matt Schaub, who’d been nearly flawless all day, threw an interception.

The Saints turned that into another touchdown and a two-point conversion to take a 32-26 lead. Even when Schaub answered his mistake with a TD drive of his own, which put Houston back up, he never really recovered the game’s momentum. New Orleans followed by marching 93 yards for another TD, then stopped Schaub one more time to win the game.
