Two contrast of play calling nearly cost us that game.
In OT, with 2:36 left, Jacksonville has the ball with 4th & 10 at the Houston 47. The conservative call would be to punt the ball inside the 20, make Houston drive 60+ yards to get into field goal range within 2:30 to win the game.

Instead, Jax gets aggressive and goes for the win. They don't convert and Houston only needs to gain 20+ yards to get into field goal range. We know what ended up happening.

Alot of times, aggressive play calls don't work and DO cost the game.

Everyone makes a big fuss about Kubiak's conservative play calling, and how many games it may have cost us... but no one mentions how many games it has won for us.
