The last time the Jaguars saw the Texans at EverBank Field was November 14, 2010 when the Jags came out with a big W by winning 31-24. The score was 24-24 and the clock was running down fast when everybody in the stadium thought we were going into overtime, but that was not the case when Dirk Koetter decided to take a shot to the end zone.

Garrard stepped back to pass and threw deep for a hail mary. It was anybody's ball the moment it left his finger tips. Glover Quin for the Texans tried to knock it down to the ground, but amazingly, somehow, someway Mike Thomas caught the football at the 3 yard line and ran in for the game-winning touchdown. Not only was it a great catch, but it was a great day for him with 149 receiving yards as Garrard threw for a season-high of 342 yards.

In week 17 of 2010, it was a entirely different story and the Texans did not allow that to happen again on their turf. They were determined to defeat the Jags and the result was how they planned, 34-17.

In week 8, it was the same outcome as before beating the Jaguars 24-14, but with this game the Jags had rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert under center, who in the end threw for only 97 yards.

Now in week 12, same outcome 20-13 and the Texans, even with the Texans disadvantage with their starting QB Matt Schaub out and in the game Matt Leinart was injured too.

Even though the Jags are out of the playoff definitely, they shouldn't and will not give up because they have a long way before they are a playoff caliber team.
