The Jaguars could be in the process of acquiring their quarterback of the future.
And in the process, they’re allowing the Texans the chance to perhaps do so as well.
The Jaguars beat the toothless Texans 13-6, sending the Texans to their ninth straight loss.
With the loss, the Texans have played themselves into a 2-9 logjam with the Jaguars and the Falcons (with the 2-8 Vikings and Bucs each still playing).
That’s a status befitting an ugly game, as the Jaguars didn’t so much win as failed to be as bad as the Texans were.
There were moments early in the second half when they recalled Andre Johnson played for them (two catches for 36 yards), but a late Case Keenum interception killed a brief rally.
Keenum finished 18-of-34 for 169 yards, and though he was sacked twice, he was on the run all day and never had time to make a play.
The Jaguars have now won two of their last three, which stands as a hot streak.
