Recap

Matt Schaub threw a touchdown pass and ran for another as the Houston Texans held the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars to 160 yards of offense en route to a 24-14 win on Sunday.
 
Tight end Joel Dreessen caught a 7-yard touchdown in the third quarter to break a 7-7 tie and Arian Foster added a 4-yard score in the fourth for the Texans (5-3), who remained a half-game ahead of the Titans in the AFC South.
 
Foster had a combined 234 yards in Houston’s 41-7 victory at Tennessee last week, but only 124 on Sunday – 112 on the ground – for his fifth straight game with 100 yards or more from scrimmage.
 
Jacksonville’s Maurice Jones-Drew, who entered the game second in the NFL with 677 yards rushing, was held to 63 and a touchdown as the Jaguars (2-6) fell to 2-7 in their last nine games at Houston.
 
The Texans took a 7-0 lead on Schaub’s 2-yard run in the first quarter.
 
Jacksonville answered when Jason Hill caught his third touchdown pass in four games, a 5-yarder from rookie Blaine Gabbert in the second quarter.
 
The score was set up when the Jaguars’ Clint Session sacked Schaub at the Houston 35 and forced a fumble, which was returned 22 yards and wound up back in Session’s hands after two laterals.
 
Gabbert left the game for one series in the first quarter with a rib injury, but returned. He finished 10 of 30 for 97 yards with two interceptions and has completed only 45.6 percent of his passes this season.
 
Schaub was 16 of 30 for 225 yards.
