JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Houston Texans might struggle against the rest of the league, but they sure match up well against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
David Carr threw for 167 yards and ran for 48 more before leaving the game with a shoulder injury, and the Texans defeated the Jaguars to snap a 12-game road losing streak.
The Texans upset their AFC South rivals for the second time in four weeks and won on the road for the first time since December 2004. Houston's last road victory also came at Jacksonville, a 21-0 shocker that essentially knocked the Jaguars out of playoff contention.
This one was considerably closer, but still somewhat surprising.
David Garrard, starting his third consecutive game in place of Byron Leftwich, threw four interceptions. Two of them came after Matt Jones bobbled perfect passes.
