Raiders vs. Texans, NFL Scores: Last-Second Michael Huff Interception Seals Raiders 25-20 Win

It was looking like the Oakland Raiders were on the verge of another collapse a la the Buffalo Bills game a few weeks ago, but perhaps a little divine intervention from Al Davis caused a last second Michael Huff interception to ensure the Silver and Black's exciting 25-20 win at Reliant Stadium in Houston. 

Matt Schaub and the Texans were driving down the field with no timeouts at the end of the game, getting the ball down all the way to Oakland's 5 yard line. And with only seconds left in the game, Schaub's pass in the endzone was taken by Huff to ensure the Raiders moving to 3-2 on the year. 

The Texans got on the board early with a 5 yard pass to Kevin Walter, followed by Sebastian Janikowski's first 50 plus yard field goal (54) to get the Silver and Black on the board. Janikowski would hit another in the second quater to make it 7-6 when Matt Schaub connected with Joel Dreessen for a 56 yard TD pass to extend their lead. Darrius Heyward-Bey caught a 34 yard touchdown before the half,  but a missed two-point conversion keep the score 14-12 at the half. 

Janikowski and Texans' kicker Neil Rackers traded 50 yard field goals in the third quarter to keep Houston ahead 17-15 setting up a wild fourth quarter at Reliant Stadium. Chaz Schillens caught an 18 yard pass from Jason Campbell for a TD, followed by another Janikowski field goal that was set up by a fake punt and 35 yard gain for Rock Cartwright.   Neil Rackers would hit a 40 yarder to bring the Texans within five, but they couldn't get the job done. 

Texans outside linebacker Mario Williams left early in the game with a pectoral injury, though the extend of the injury isn't completely known yet, pectoral issues are historically very bad things for football players to recover from quickly. 

Jason Campbell finished the game 15/35 for 190 yards with two TDs and one INT, while Darrius Heyward-Bey lead all receivers with seven catches for 99 yards and a TD. Darren McFadden had his worst game of the year so far, rushing for only 51 yards on 16 carries for the day, as well as two catches for 17 yards. Matt Schaub still threw for 416 yards without Andre Johnson, finishing 24/51 with two TDs and two INTs, while Arian Foster carried the ball 22 times for 68 yards.
