Slaton Rushes Mario Sacks for Texans Win over Jags


The Texans have a 30-10 lead as the game closes in on the 2 minute warning. The Jaguars seem to have given up. Steve Slaton just scored on a 40 yard touchdown run over the right side. I thought Slaton’s ability to run would be key to this game. Big Eric Winston mans the right tackle spot for the Texans and Slaton has rushed for 127 yards and 2 touchdowns with Winston’s help.

Mario Williams has had a monster of a game on defense. He has sacked David Garrard 3 times in front of a big television audience. It’d be nice for Williams to get some recognition by being picked for the Pro Bowl.

The Texans are out of the cellar. They are one position in front of the Jaguars. The Texans can use this game as motivation for the remainder of the season. 8-8 or 9-7 should be there goal. I’d be surprised if the Jaguars won another game.

The final score is 30-17 Texans. David Garrard threw a touchdown pass late to make the score closer than it was.
