Jacksonville Jaguars Earn First Home-win Since 2012

The Jacksonville Jaguars earned their first home game win in over a year Thursday night by beating the Houston Texans 27-20.

The Jags (4-9) won their third straight game and fourth in five games with the win.  The winning streak is the longest active streak in the AFC.

Jacksonville’s last win was November 25, 2012 against the Tennessee Titans.

Houston (2-11) struggled throughout the game and extended its franchise-record losing streak to 11 games.

The Texans looked like they could break their streak after a quarterback change, putting in Matt Schuab after Case Keenum’s weak performance, but an interception by Geno Hayes with 2:08 left on the clock sealed Jacksonville’s first series sweep since 2009.

Schuab was able to lead his Texans to a touchdown and field goal in his first two possessions, but Houston was unable to convert a fourth-down play with 3:37 remaining.

Jacksonville was then able to get a huge first down that flipped the field, but ended by punting, and that’s when Schaub threw the INT.

Schaub completed 17 of 29 passes for 198 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Andre Johnson caught 13 passes for 154 yards for Houston as well.

Penalties played a big role for the Texans who were flagged 14 times for a team-record 177 yards.

Jacksonville pulled their second trick play in the past two games, as quarterback Chad Henne threw behind the line of scrimmage to receiver Ace Sanders, who then threw a deep ball across the field to a wide open receiver.

Last game it was tailback Maurice Jones-Drew who tossed an eight yard score to tight end Marcedes Lewis in a 32-28 win at Cleveland.

Mojo and Sanders now have as may touch down passes this season as benched started Blaine Gabbert.

Henne completed 12 of 27 passes for 117 yards with two touchdown passes.
