JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have gone from the worst team in the NFL to the hottest team in the AFC. And theyre enjoying it. Chad Henne threw two touchdown passes, Jordan Todman scored on some trickery and the Jaguars held on to beat the Houston Texans 27-20 on Thursday night. The Jaguars (4-9) won their third straight -- their fourth victory in five games since a bye -- and continued to show signs of progress under first-year coach Gus Bradley. They have the longest winning streak in the AFC. "Four out of five, yeah, youre feeling good," Henne said. Jacksonville also won at home for the first time since Nov. 25, 2012, against Tennessee. "Our guys just really believe," Bradley said. "The biggest challenge is to keep doing what were doing. Were a young team thats learning how to do this." Houston (2-11) extended its franchise-record losing streak to 11 games, a stunning stretch of futility that could lead the franchise to fire coach Gary Kubiak. "Its been a gut-wrenching experience," said Kubiak, whose team has lost eight games by seven points or less. "Weve been in so many close games." Kubiak and the Texans looked as if they would end the streak after a quarterback change, but Geno Hayes intercepted Matt Schaubs pass with 2:08 remaining to seal Jacksonvilles first series sweep since 2009. Schaub came off the bench and carved up Jacksonvilles secondary in the second half. He replaced starter Case Keenum late in the third quarter and led the team to a touchdown and a field goal in his first two possessions. The Texans were in the red zone again, but failed to convert a fourth-down play with 3:37 remaining. Jacksonville picked up a huge first down that flipped the field -- not surprising that it came on a penalty -- but punted. Hayes picked off Schaubs next pass, a floater over the middle. The Jaguars milked the clock from there, and Josh Scobees 39-yard field goal provided some insurance. The Texans had one final chance -- they needed to go 77 yards in 20 seconds and without a timeout -- but Schaub was sacked to end the game. Jacksonville players ran on the field to celebrate. "For what theyve gone through and to stick to it and have some results go their way, its pretty cool," Bradley said. "Our team continues to show that theyre sticking to it, believing and making plays at critical times." Schaub completed 17 of 29 passes for 198 yards, with a touchdown and an interception. Andre Johnson caught 13 passes for 154 yards. Still, the Texans walked off the field with an all-too-familiar feeling. Turnovers were a problem again for Kubiaks team. Penalties were an even bigger problem. Houston was flagged 14 times for a team-record 177 yards -- many of them extending drives. "They were huge penalties," Kubiak said. "Thats on me. Its ridiculous. Its inexcusable. It cant happen." Jacksonvilles opponents might want to start expecting trick plays. Offensive co-ordinator Jedd Fisch dialed up a double pass that led to a score and a 24-10 lead in the third quarter. Henne threw behind the line of scrimmage to receiver Ace Sanders, who then heaved a deep ball across the field to running back Todman. No defender was near Todman as he camped under Sanders throw. Rookie D.J. Swearinger pushed Todman just as he hauled in the 21-yard TD reception. It was the second consecutive week a non-quarterback threw a TD pass for Jacksonville. Maurice Jones-Drew tossed an 8-yard score to college teammate Marcedes Lewis in a 32-28 win at Cleveland last week. Sanders and Jones-Drew now have as many TD passes this season as benched Jaguars starter Blaine Gabbert. Henne completed 12 of 27 passes for 117 yards. He hooked up with Lewis for a 1-yard scoring strike in the first quarter and found Cecil Shorts III for a 6-yarder in the second. The Jaguars took the opening kickoff and drove 80 yards for the teams fourth opening-drive touchdown in its last five games. Houston punted on its first three possessions, creating more momentum for the home team. Hennes second TD pass gave Jacksonville its largest lead (14 points) of the season. Henne hit Shorts out of bounds on a second-down play, but went right back to his leading receiver on the next snap. Shorts beat Johnathan Joseph on a quick out. Jones-Drew carried 14 times for a season-high 103 yards. He left the game late in the fourth with a hamstring injury, but said he would be fine. The Jaguars are enjoying a modest turnaround after starting the season 0-8. Two victories came against Houston, including a 13-6 punt-fest 11 days ago. "Its been amazing," Jones-Drew said. "Gus has done a great job." The Texans managed a season-low 218 yards in that one, prompting some players to apologies to the city. Johnson called it the "lowest point" of his 11-year career. What will they say now? Another loss surely will increase the possibility of changes in Houston, which improved its chances of landing the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL draft. Notes: Jaguars S Chris Prosinski (head) left the game and did not return. ... Jaguars PK Josh Scobee is 19 of 21 on field goals this season, getting one blocked and missing a 60-yarder. ... Texans were 2 for 5 in the red zone, continuing a season-long trend. Another loss surely will increase the possibility of changes in Houston.

And the same could likely be said about the Bulls franchise. They werent alone. The NBA was waiting as well. When Roses comeback commences for real on opening night in Miami on Oct. 29 against the two-time defending champion Heat, theres no question the league will be savoring the return of one of its biggest sources of star power. Rose sells tons of jerseys, sells tons of tickets, gets more people watching on television and almost certainly will raise the quality of play in the Eastern Conference. Sure, its better for opponents when he spends an entire season in suits. For the game, its better when hes back on the floor. "Obviously, hes one of our better players in the league," said Heat All-Star guard Dwyane Wade, a native of Chicago. "You miss a guy as dynamic as that. The league as a whole missed him.. So Im sure for the city of Chicago, as hes a guy who really believes in and loves the city, Im sure theyre ecstatic. Having him back will bring a different kind of energy." Rose was the NBAs MVP in 2011, and has played in just 40 of the Bulls 166 games since because of a number of injuries -- the most serious of them being a torn-up left knee suffered in Chicagos first playoff game in 2012. Some suggested that because of his athleticism and commitment to rehabilitation, he would only miss a few months. By the time he returned to the court earlier in this preseason, more than 17 months had passed without Rose in uniform. By the time Rose plays in a game for real, it will be 18 months and 1 day since his knee gave way and rendered him to endless questions about why he could be practicing but not playing. Some of his NBA colleagues understood that logic. "I thought it was very smart of him not to rush back," Cleveland guard Jarrett Jack said. "Everybody kept thinking that just because it was an injury that happened last year that he should come back in the regular season. They didnt take into consideration that it happened so late in April and he would be walking a slippery slope to force himself back and then to try and be himself. "Thats the thing that people forget," Jacck continued.dddddddddddd "You dont want to come back and just be half of yourself. You want to come back and be at full strength." So Rose waited. The Bulls did better than many people expected without him, winning 45 regular-season games a year ago, ousting Brooklyn in the first round and taking Game 1 of a second-round series against Miami before falling in five games. And the off-the-court side of Rose seemed to flourish. He had the top-selling NBA jersey in China, Latin America and Europe last season. His jersey remains one of the most prominent -- and popular -- at the NBA Store in New York. All that came with the majority of Roses public displays of basketball being shooting and dribbling work on the floor before games, often working himself into a full sweat while his teammates were in the locker room making final preparations before starting warmups. "I think hes coming back stronger than ever," Atlanta forward Al Horford said. "Just from what Ive been hearing, hes anxious. He hasnt played in a year so hes going to be going after people." Thats been evident in this preseason. If someone with an MVP award on his resume needed a breakout preseason game, Rose got it last week against Indiana. He was vintage against one of Chicagos top rivals, with 32 points in just 31 minutes. He was aggressive, getting to the foul line. He created contact, just like he used to. He was strong defending on the ball. His jump shot looked better than ever. "Its definitely going to mean a lot to have him back," Minnesota forward Kevin Love said. "We obviously hope that when he plays the Timberwolves that he has an off game. He looks a lot stronger, he looks very confident and I think hes going to have a great year. He just looks really focused." By the end of the year, Indiana coach Frank Vogel will probably have seen enough of Rose, given that the Bulls and Pacers will probably be the top contenders in the Central Division. And if their four regular-season meetings werent enough, Chicago and Indiana squared off twice in this preseason as well. So Vogels already had a courtside seat from which to assess Roses return. "Same old Derrick Rose," Vogel said. Yep, hes back.
