Jags extend lead with TD on double pass

A dose of trickery from the Jacksonville Jaguars has the team closing in on their first home victory of the season.

Receiver Ace Sanders threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to running back Jordan Todman on a double pass to extend the Jaguars lead to 24-10 over the Houston Texans with just over six minutes remaining in the third quarter.

A pass interference call against Jonathan Joseph kept another Jacksonville drive alive instead of forcing a punt from their own 15-yard line. A 48-yard carry from Maurice Jones-Drew moved the Jaguars from their own 18-yard line into Houston territory. A another critical penalty against D.J. Swearinger moved the Jaguars to the edge of the Texans’ red zone to set up the scoring play.

Chad Henne took the snap and threw to a retreating Sanders along the left sideline. Todman leaked out the backside of the play as Sanders threw the ball into the end zone. Despite the relatively slow-developing nature of the play, the Texans still couldn’t make as play as Todman made the grab to extend the Jaguars’ lead.

    Ace is now the 2nd best QB on the team by default.

    Sadly for Houston, Teddy Bridgewater isn’t playing especially well tonight.
