HOUSTON (AP) - Maurice Jones-Drew finally got going and led the Jacksonville Jaguars to their first win. Jones-Drew had his first 100-yard game of the season and scored three touchdowns to lead the Jaguars to a 31-24 victory over the mistake-prone Houston Texans 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. Houston had several chances to tie the game.
The last came when Chris Brown's goal line fumble was recovered by the Jaguars in the end zone. The Texans challenged but Jacksonville kept the ball. The Texans had a touchdown nullified two plays earlier when Kevin Walter was called for offensive pass interference.
