Jaguars top Texans for first win

BY foxsports • September 28, 2009

Maurice Jones-Drew carried the Jacksonville Jaguars to their first victory and trounced all over the good feelings the Houston Texans had after their big win last week.

Jones-Drew had his first 100-yard game of the season and scored three touchdowns to lead the Jaguars over the mistake-prone Texans, 31-24 on Sunday.

Jones-Drew scored the go-ahead touchdown on an 8-yard run early in the fourth quarter and finished with 119 yards rushing.

"Each play we got better," Jones-Drew said. "Each time we got to the sideline we got better. We just kept believing in each other and that was the best thing about it ... they jumped out on us real quick. We just kept fighting back, fighting back. No one blinked."
