With an 11th straight loss potentially staring them in the face, the Houston Texans decided to make a change at quarterback once again.
Matt Schaub replaced starter Case Keenum late in the third quarter and quickly led the Texans on a touchdown drive to pull within seven points of the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night.
Keenum had completed 16 of 29 attempts for 159 yards with a touchdown and an interception before being replaced. The Jaguars had taken a 24-10 lead over the Texans with just over six minutes left to play in the third quarter. Keenum and the Texans’ offense quickly followed with a three-and-out and head coach Gary Kubiak pulled the plug on Keenum for the Texans’ next possession.
Schaub quickly led the Texans on a seven-play, 76-yard scoring drive capped by a 5-yard touchdown pass to tight end Garrett Graham.
