Jaguars Vs. Texans: Houston Up 14-10 On Matt Leinart Touchdown Pass

Houston Texans' quarterback Matt Leinart threw his first touchdown pass in almost three years on Sunday afternoon. Leinart hit Houston tight end Joel Dreessen for a 20 yard touchdown pass to give the Texans a 14-10 lead at EverBank field. Houston went playaction as Leinart faked a handoff and then rolled out to his left. Jaguars' defensive lineman Jeremy Mincey was not fooled, however, as he was right in Leinart's face as he rolled outside the tackle box. Somehow, the Texans quarterback was able to get the ball away, hoisting a prayer towards Dreessen who was rolling across the field with Leinart. The floater landed in Dreessen's arms who then took it in for the Texans' second score of the day. Video of the touchdown below:
