Houston (CBS Houston) – The Houston Texans franchise record losing streak continued Sunday as the Texans lost 13-6 to the Jacksonville Jaguars to tie for the worst record in the NFL at 2-9.
The Jaguars and Texans came into the season with very different expectations. But after ten weeks, they found themselves battling for last place in the AFC South. Trying to avoid such a position could lift both teams level of play, not Sunday.
The Texans entered the locker room at halftime with just 60 yards of total offense, 54 of which came on the ground. To start the third quarter Case Keenum was able to engineer an 83-yard drive that ended in the field goal and closed the gap to 10-6.
Both teams traded three-and-outs before Josh Scobee added a 53-yard field goal with 6:44 left in the fourth quarter, giving Jacksonville a 13-6 lead. The Texans would get one last shot to tie the game, but WR Kareem Jackson tipped a pass from Keenum into the air and it was intercepted by the Jaguars to seal the team’s 2nd win of the season.
The Texans were 4-15 on third down and were only able to muster 218 total yards on the day.
