The Houston Chronicle - [Full Article]

Since the Oakland game ended, the Texans have contended that receiver Jacoby Jones didn't play as badly as the statistics sheet represented. Officially, he was targeted 11 times and had one catch for 9 yards.

A review of the game tape, specifically the times Jones was targeted, shows some interesting results, including that 13 passes actually were intended for Jones, but two were nullified by penalties on the Raiders.

Three of Matt Schaub's passes were overthrown, including one when he was hit as he was throwing. Two of Schaub's passes were tipped at the line of scrimmage. Three passes were underthrown. Another was low and would have taken a great catch.

"Like I told you, he ran some damn good routes where, if the ball didn't get tipped or hit, he would've came away from the game with five or six catches for another 70, 80 yards," coach Gary Kubiak said.
