    The Houston Texans would come away with their second home win in as many weeks against a division foe, holding off the visiting Jaguars 20-14. Texans QB Samuel Billi didn't have the best of games, throwing 3 interceptions, but the run game and defense were able to bail him out again.

    Houston would get out to an early 1st quarter 10-0 lead. On Billi's first drive, he would hit big pass plays to WR Dematrae Magee and TE Torri Dickerson, eventually setting up the TD pass play to WR Devin Hester. The Texans would add the 3 points after forcing a fumble recovery on Jacksonville's next drive. But after that first drive, Billi would go on to throw 3 picks, 2 of those setting up TD scoring drives for the Jaguars, as they would take the 14-13 lead on pass from QB Ryen Irwin to his big TEs Lee Smith and Luke Wilson.

    It wouldnt be until the second half when Billi and the Texans would put together another long scoring drive and capping it off with an Arian Foster TD run, on a day where Foster rushed for 101 yards. Later in the 4th quarter, when the Texans were looking to score again to extend the lead is when Billi would attempt to hit Larry Fitzgerald in the red zone, but Jaguars DB Justin Rogers would literally take the ball out of Fitz hands for the amazing pick, giving Irwin and the Jags another shot. However, their drive would end on a 3rd down pass play to Chris Givens, who would drop the ball with contact from a defender. Texans take the lucky break, and after taking the punt, would be able to run the clock out and hold on to the victory. GG CHUNKNESS
