Texans Vs. Jaguars Update: Houston's TJ Yates Rights The Ship, Texans Lead 20-10

WIth Matt Leinart out for the remainder of the game versus the Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston Texans' third-string quarter TJ Yates has come in and done what's been asked of him thus far.

Make the easy passes, hand the ball off and don't turn the ball over. Check. Check. Check.

The Texans still hold a 20-10 advantage over the Jaguars going into the fourth quarter at Everbank Field in Jacksonville. Gary Kubiak has tried to lean on his running game, but two uncharacteristic fumbles by Arian Foster has helped keep the Jaguars in the game. Foster has 61 yards rushing and a touchdown thus far.

The Texans defense has stepped up to slow down the Jaguars offense, as five sacks and only one field goal allowed is proof that the defensive side of the ball isn't as maligned as their past would indicate.

With a win, the Texans would move to 8-3 and could lock up the AFC South in the coming weeks.
