After leading 14-10 at halftime, the Oilers stopped the Jets twice inside the 5-yard line in the second half to preserve the victory. Houston quarterback Warren Moon threw two touchdowns in the first half, both to Ernest Givins for 5 and 20 yards. For New York, wide receiver Al Toon recorded a 10-yard touchdown reception from Ken O'Brien and kicker Raul Allegre made a 33-yard field goal. The Jets then took the opening kickoff of the second half and marched to the Houston 8-yard line, but O'Brien threw an interception to Oilers defensive back Bubba McDowell. Then after Oilers kicker Al Del Greco made a 53-yard field goal, New York faced fourth down and inches at the Houston 3-yard line. Rather than attempt a field goal, running back Freeman McNeil tried to advance the ball but was tackled for no gain. Late in the game, the Jets has another chance to score after recovering a fumble by Moon at the Houston 26-yard line, but turned it over on downs again.
