Nothing To See Here: Texans Fall To 5-10 Against Broncos

Denver, CO (Sports Network) – Tim Tebow’s six-yard rushing touchdown with just over three minutes to play in the game lifted Denver to a dramatic 24-23 come- from-behind win over Houston at Invesco Field.

The rookie quarterback led his team back from an 17-point deficit by going 16- of-29 for 308 yards, a touchdown and an interception in his second career start for the Broncos (4-11), who halted a five-game slide and won for just the second time in 11 games.

Tebow’s 308 yards passing were the most for a Denver rookie quarterback since Broncos legend John Elway, who was famous for directing fourth-quarter drives to win games, threw for 345 yards against Baltimore, the team that drafted him, on December 11, 1983.

Correll Buckhalter carried 11 times for 42 yards and a touchdown and added three catches for 50 yards and a score while Brandon Lloyd made five grabs for 111 yards to post the second-highest single-season receiving yardage total in team history.

Matt Schaub connected on 23-of-33 throws for 310 yards and a touchdown while Arian Foster ran for 91 yards and a score on 19 attempts for the Texans (5-10), who have lost four straight and eight out of their last nine games.

Jacoby Jones made five catches for 115 yards in the absence of Andre Johnson. Owen Daniels caught eight passes for 73 yards and a score in defeat.
