HOUSTON (AP) -- The Texans are learning how to win, even when their high-powered offense has an off day.
Arian Foster rushed for 112 yards and a touchdown, and Houston shut down rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert and the NFL's worst offense in a 24-14 win over the Jaguars on Sunday.
Matt Schaub threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score for Houston (5-3), off to its best eight-game start. The Texans also took one more step toward the franchise's first division title and playoff berth by improving to 3-0 in the AFC South.
"We knew it was going to be a tough, dirty game," said Houston linebacker Brian Cushing, who led his team with seven tackles. "In this league, it's tough to get a win. We just had to do what we had to do."
The Texans have outscored their division opponents by a total score of 99-28. This was the closest of the three games, mostly due to two Houston fumbles that led to Jacksonville touchdowns.
