Lewis drop kills Jaguars in first half

By Paul Kuharsky

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jaguars blew a great chance to take control of their game against the Texans in the first half, but perhaps an injury to Matt Leinart creates the possibility of a rare comeback.

Houston’s top-ranked defense hardly looks worthy of the standing.

At the half, it’s 20-10 Texans.

Jacksonville put together an excellent second-quarter drive with consecutive plays of 31 yards, 25 yards and 14 yards. But a wide open Marcedes Lewis dropped a touchdown pass from Blaine Gabbert and the Jaguars had to settle for a 10-7 lead off a field goal.

Things went south from there.
