Schaub then threw two touchdown passes to tight end Garrett Graham in the final 5:39 to force overtime.
Shayne Graham and Josh Scobee kicked field goals in overtime and, for a while, it looked like NFL would have its second tie in two weeks. San Francisco and St. Louis finished 24-24 last week.
Henne threw incomplete on fourth-and-10 from the Houston 47, and the Texans regained possession with 2:30 left in OT. Schaub saw the perfect defense for a receiver screen pass to Johnson, who took the pass and sprinted untouched down the right sideline to end it.
"We got what we wanted," Schaub said, "and 'Dre did the rest."
Johnson surpassed his own single-game records for receptions and yards receiving. Kubiak thinks those records may stand for a while.
"I don't know if that one will ever be touched," Kubiak said. "That was special from the Texans standpoint."
Gabbert left in the first quarter with a bruised right elbow. Mularkey said last week that he was sticking with Gabbert as his starter, but he may have to go with Henne now. He didn't have an update on Gabbert's injury after the game and will decide later whether to start Gabbert next week.
With Henne guiding the offense, Jacksonville had 238 yards by halftime.
"You've just got to always be prepared and ready to go in," Henne said. "I've been preparing these last couple weeks like I've got to be the starter, and any time he (Gabbert) goes down, just jump in and hopefully not lose a step."
