Jaguars vs. Texans 2013: Second half game thread

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Jaguars lead 10-3 at halftime, but dominated much of the first half.

If the goal was to watch a young team get better as the season went on, it's hard to argue that it hasn't been another solid game for the Jaguars.

After getting blown out in eight consecutive games to start the season, the Jaguars have returned from the bye week with a new found determination and put it on display again in the first half of Week 12 against the Texans. While the team didn't light up the scoreboard, finishing the half with a 10-3 lead, just about everything went well for the team.

On defense, the Jaguars consistently harassed Texans quarterback Case Keenum, who completed 5-of-12 passes for just 32 yards and was sacked twice. The Texans running backs didn't find much room either, tallying just 27 yards on 11 carries before Dennis Johnson finally broke free on a 29-yard run late in the second quarter.

The Jaguars offense featured explosive plays of 51 and 44 yards from Ace Sanders and Maurice Jones-Drew, respectively, that set up scoring plays for the team.

The Texans will be the recipients of the opening kickoff of the second half.
