The 11th-year pro finished 34 of 45 for 346 yards, getting sacked twice. He threw all three of his touchdown passes to tight ends Owen Daniels and Garrett Graham, while hooking up with favorite target Johnson for 12 catches and 146 yards.

"Once you put a score on the board, then another, and the defense gets a stop, the big turnover, it just builds," Schaub said. "Momentum keeps building, and you can feel that energy, and it’s contagious."

KID KICKER

Bullock was the first kicker drafted by the Texans last year, but he missed the entire season with a groin injury.

Kubiak handed the job to Bullock outright earlier this year, not even making him compete in camp — and Bullock has rewarded his fellow Texas A&M Aggie with stellar work.

Bullock missed his first career attempt from 51 yards late in the first half, pushing it barely wide left.

When he got another opportunity with the game on the line, the former Lou Groza Award winner didn’t miss.

"I might have put the last three points on the board, but the fight they have was pretty impressive," Bullock said. "I’m proud of these guys."
