HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson provided the late game heroics but former Punahou standout Ka’imi Fairbairn delivered the knockout blow.
The Texans rallied from a 16 point second half deficit to defeat the Buffalo Bills 22-19 in the AFC Wild Card Round on Saturday in Houston.
Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson drove the ball the length of the field in overtime against a physical Bills defense to set up Faibarin for a 28 yard field goal attempt to end the game -- which split the uprights.
The former Lou Groza award winner was 2-for-2 on field goals Saturday, as he also connected on a 41-yarder in the fourth quarter to cut the Buffalo lead to 16-11 with 10:45 remaining in regulation.
Fairbairn and the Texans will now advance to play the AFC’s number two seed the Kansas City Chiefs in Arrowhead next weekend.
