Open Thread 4.0: Texans @ Jaguars - No Meat And Potatoes On Sunday

Let's take a look back at some of the third quarter happenings between the Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars.

- A combination of bad punt, bad coverage, and terribly bad pass defense by Bradie James led to a Jacksonville touchdown. It was the first touchdown allowed by the Houston defense all season.

- The offensive gameplan is frustrating, in terms of the passing attack. Last week's Jacksonville secondary was shredded by Christian Ponder while this week's has locked down Houston receives like a combination of Deion Sanders, Ronnie Lott, Ed Reed, and Charles Woodson. Yes, Houston is leading, but 5.1 yards per attempt shows a real lack of stretching the defense vertically.

- The Texans answered Jacksonville's touchdown with a 17-play, 80-yard touchdown of their own, capped off by Ben Tate's second touchdown run of the day.

- A Houston sportswriter is embarrassing himself, again, with
his gameday tweets.

That was the third quarter in a nutshell. The Houston Texans, YOUR Houston Texans, lead 24-7 over the Jacksonville Jaguars. One more quarter to go, so get your comments in below.
