Rapid Reaction: Jaguars 30, Texans 27 (OT)

Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky
The Jaguars are feeling a lot better about themselves tonight, having pulled to 2-2 with their overtime win over Houston.

David Garrard played the sort of mistake-free game that was such a boon to last year's team. And from what I saw he really took things over late, with a few of his seven runs for 41 yards, including his TD run, coming in the clutch.

The Texans didn't fly back to Houston happy, having come so close to getting their first win.

But there has to be some sense of relief over the way Matt Schaub responded to a week of talk, from the outside, about Sage Rosenfels replacing him.

Schaub was not sacked and game statisticians credited the Jaguars with just four QB hits. Like most QBs, he's a different player when he's got time and space. In this game it translated to 307 yards, three touchdowns with no picks and a 119.5 passer rating.

The thing is, how often are the Texans going to be able to provide him with that time and space?
