Wil Lutz created a field goal as time expired to lift New Orleans Saints at a game which had three scoring matches in the last minute into a victory over the Houston Texans.
Deshaun Watson drove a touchdown pass to former Saints receiver Kenny Stills capping a two-play drive that put the Texans after they started their ownership down with 50 seconds left.
However there was an 11-yarder into Michael Thomas and yet a second move yards in sequence, only enough time Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who capped a two-touchdown performance by completing a pass to Ted Ginn Jr.
That allowed New Orleans to save final timeout until two seconds stayed and set up the career-long kick of Lutz.
The 40-year-old Brees completed 32 of 43 moves. He threw one interception deep in Houston land but did enough to compensate for it.
Brees appeared to have all but sealed it when he spotted Ginn deep down field on third and 2 and joined into the Houston 44 for a profit at the 2-minute warning.
Followed with the 11-yard jog, before a 47-yarder was converted by Lutz and the Saints ran down the clock to 55 minutes.
Watson conducted for a 21-yard dent on a play, and completed 20 of 30 passes for 268 yards and 3 touchdowns to DeAndre Hopkins with.
