Punahou alum and Houston Texans kicker Ka’imi Fairbairn kicked the game-winning field goal in Saturday’s divisional round matchup against the Buffalo Bills.
Fairbairn’s 28-yard field goal in overtime gave the Texans a 22-19 win. The Texans now await their next opponent. If they were to be victorious next week, they would advance to the AFC championship game.
Fairbairn was 2-for-2 on field goals Saturday. He kicked a 41-yarder in the fourth quarter to cut the Buffalo lead to 16-11 with 10:45 remaining in regulation.
Fairbairn kicked collegiately for UCLA, where in 2015 he was awarded the Lou Groza Award as the nation’s top kicker.
