5. Sept. 19, 2010: Week 2

Houston Texans at Washington Redskins

Final Score: Texans 30, Redskins 27 (Overtime)

From start to finish, this back-and-forth affair was one of Matt Schaub‘s best games at the helm of the franchise. Passing for a then team-record of 497 yards and three touchdowns, No. 8 was able to out-duel opposing quarterback Donovan McNabb at FedEx Field. Other notable performances include a two-touchdown performance by Clinton Portis on the opposition and receiving touchdowns by Kevin Walter and Jacoby Jones.

However, the star of this game was undoubtedly Andre Johnson, who skied over defenders to catch the game-tying 34-yard touchdown. The catch came on fourth-and-10 and was one of the most-clutch moments of his career.

This win put the team to 2-0 on the season after the overtime thriller, and it’s great to see some of the old faces from both teams. The Texans were coached by Gary Kubiak, the Redskins were led by Mike Shanahan and the offensive coordinator for Washington was former Texans play-caller Kyle Shanahan.

This win was before any Texans playoff appearances and was one of the bigger wins in franchise history, considering the team was still looking for their first season over .500.
