All Ryan Davis wanted was a chance.
When he finally got one, he made the most of it.
Davis, who spent the first 11 weeks of the season on the practice squad, sealed the Jaguars' 13-6 victory over Houston on Sunday by intercepting a deflected pass with 34 seconds remaining.
"I was just following my coaching and putting in the extra effort," Davis told the Florida Times-Union's Ryan O'Halloran. "I was fortunate to be in position to make the play."
Davis' play was another signal that the Jaguars (2-9) are improving. So was the improved running game, the way they shut down Texans receiver Andre Johnson, and the way they overcame four sacks and seven penalties.

The T-U's Hays Carylon writes that the Jaguars' running game finally got its MoJo back.
T-U columnist Gene Frenette writes that it was refreshing to see the Jaguars' defense finally start to play well.
How did the Jaguars shut down Texans receiver Andre Johnson? Location, location, location.
The Jaguars' run game was keyed by the offensive line's most consistent performance of the season, which was the result of the team not having a full-pads practice on Wednesday, guard Uche Nwaneri said.
