Houston receiver Andre Johnson scores the winning touchdown in overtime Sunday. He had 14 grabs for 273 yards against Jacksonville.

Johnson had 14 receptions for 273 yards, both career highs. Blackmon, a rookie, had seven receptions for 236 yards, also career highs.

Blackmon had an 81-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter. Johnson gave the Texans a 43-37 win in overtime with a 48-yard touchdown catch.

EAGLES: Running back LeSean McCoy left the 31-6 loss to Washington with a concussion.

McCoy was taken off the field on a cart after staying down following a 7-yard run with less than 2 minutes left Sunday.

He ran for 45 yards on 15 carries and gained another 67 yards on six catches.

CHIEFS: Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe left Sunday’s game against Cincinnati with a neck injury and left tackle Branden Albert left with a back injury.

Bowe was being covered on a deep pass down the sideline when he leaped up, bobbled the ball and then landed hard on the turf at Arrowhead Stadium. He was checked by several trainers on the bench, retreated to the locker room and then re-emerged without his helmet.

SAINTS: Darren Sproles was inactive in the game against the Oakland Raiders with an injured left hand.

Sproles practiced this week for the first time since breaking his hand, but was held out Sunday.
