Jaguars Vs. Texans Score Update: Houston Maintains 20-10 Lead At End Of Third Quarter

The Jacksonville Jaguars enter the fourth quarter trailing the Houston Texans by ten in a divisional Week 12 matchup at EverBank Field. Jacksonville has yet to score an offensive touchdown today but it was not due to lack of opportunity. In the first half, Blaine Gabbert hit tight end Marcedes Lewis right in the hands on a second and goal pass. Lewis simply dropped the ball, even fooling announcer Kevin Harlan who exclaimed it was a touchdown. The chance was set up by Gabbert lacing a 22 yard pass down the middle to Cecil Shorts. But Lewis's drop would be costly, as the Jags had to settle for a Josh Scobee field goal - their only offensive score of the day.

With Matt Leinart out for the game with a shoulder injury, the Texans' offense is now being led by T.J. Yates. Houston has yet to get on the board, and has tried to move the ball on the ground and let Yates manage the game with some short passes. Arian Foster has carried it 18 times for 62 yards but the Jags' defense continues to keep Houston at bay in the second half.
