HOUSTON - J. Kyle Lowry Jersey .J. Watts record-setting season wasnt quite enough to get the Houston Texans to the playoffs.Watt had three sacks, a safety and a forced fumble to strengthen his case for MVP and lead the Texans to a 23-17 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.The Texans (9-7) had a shot at making the playoffs, but Baltimore beat Cleveland 20-10 to claim the final AFC wild-card spot.I wasnt ready for it to end, thats for sure, Watt said.Andre Johnson had a season-high 134 yards receiving and a touchdown for Houston, which made a seven-game improvement over last seasons 2-14 record under first-year coach Bill OBrien.These guys have a lot of be proud of, OBrien said. But at the end of the day you cant leave it up to somebody else. Youve got to control your own fate.Johnson gave Houston a 21-17 lead with an 8-yard reception early in the fourth quarter. Watt made it 23-17 when he sacked Blake Bortles in the end zone a few minutes later. The sack gave him 20 1/2 this season, making him the first player in NFL history with two seasons with 20 or more sacks. He also had 20 1/2 when he won Defensive Player of the Year in 2012.Watt finished the season with 29 tackles for loss and 50 quarterback hits, which both lead the NFL.The Jaguars (3-13) had a chance to take the lead late, but Cecil Shorts III was out of bounds on a catch on fourth down.Bortles threw for 117 yards as he struggled to move the offence for most of the day under near-constant pressure from Watt and the Texans defence.Watt danced to the song Turn Down For What after returning to the sideline after his safety. The defensive end, who has scored five touchdowns this season, smiled as the sellout crowd chanted MVP, MVP.Its pretty special, Watt said. As an athlete, thats one of the coolest things of all time, to have a stadium do a chant for you.Watt is looking to become the first defensive player to win MVP since Lawrence Taylor in 1986. The winner will be announced Jan. 31.Johnson did a bit of campaigning for his teammate to win the award after the game.If he doesnt win the MVP, Johnson said, the NFL is out of their mind.Case Keenum threw for 250 yards with two touchdowns and an interception to win his second game since rejoining the Texans after being released in training camp.Keenum was signed from the St. Louis practice squad two weeks ago after Ryan Fitzpatrick and rookie Tom Savage were injured with Ryan Mallett already out for the season.The Jaguars first touchdown came on an interception return. The second was on a trick play one snap after a fumble recovery.I think that our team showed a lot, Jacksonville coach Gus Bradley said. Were encouraged by the mentality and the effort but not by the results.Houston was down by three when Keenum and Johnson connected four times for 43 yards on a drive capped by the 8-yard touchdown reception to put the Texans back on top.Chris Clemons sacked Keenum and forced a fumble midway through the third. Ryan Davis pounced on it, giving the Jaguars the ball at the Houston 23.On the next play, Bortles threw a lateral to Shorts, who found Jordan Todman wide open for a 23-yard touchdown to put Jacksonville up 17-14.A 51-yard field goal attempt by Jacksonvilles Josh Scobee bounced off the left upright early in the third quarter.Houston took an early lead when Arian Foster scored on a 10-yard reception on the first drive. But he injured his hamstring soon after that and didnt return.Dwayne Gratz intercepted a pass deflected by DeAndre Hopkins and returned it 55 yards for a touchdown to give the Jaguars a 10-7 lead late in the first quarter.NOTES: Jacksonville DT SenDerrick Marks was on crutches after the game and Bradley said hell have an MRI on Monday. ... Alfred Blue filled in after Foster was injured and finished with 39 yards rushing and a touchdown.___AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL ;Serge Ibaka Jersey .7 million, one-year contract.The deal, announced Friday, includes a $50,000 performance bonus if the left-hander appears in 60 games. Bruno Caboclo Jersey . Kevin Durant certainly played like there was on Sunday night, scoring 36 points and grabbing 10 rebounds as the Thunder made quick work of the visiting Pacers with a 118-94 win.Ashley Cole is enjoying playing football again following his move to the MLS and is confident LA Galaxy can regain that winning feeling against Houston on Friday night. The former England left-back joined LA Galaxy in January, having ended his contract early at Roma, and made his MLS debut in a 4-1 win over DC United.Im enjoying it, he told Sky Sports News HQ. Of course, its a little bit different to playing in the Premier League and in Italy but we have a good bunch of lads here and some familiar faces that I know so theyve made it very easy to come into the squad and into the team.Every manager and every team has a different philosophy or a different way they want to play so of course its a little bit different.Some familiar faces at the club have made it easier for the former Arsenal, Chelsea and Roma defender to settle since his move to Los Angeles, with the likes of Steven Gerrard and Robbie Keane already there. Ashley Cole joined LA Galaxy in January Cole was appreciative of the support given to him by the other European exiles at LA Galaxy, especially Gerrard.Id spoken to him prior to coming to LA, said Cole. He told me what its about and the layout of LA. From my first day here, he made it very easy for me. He took me around, showed me where I needed to be at certain times.I came here just to play football again. I didnt really have a great time in Rome so it was just for me to start enjjoying my football again - theyve given me the chance to do that. Vince Carter Jersey. Steven Gerrard playing for LA Galaxy Weve had great careers but in terms of hunger and desire [to win] we still have that. Its good for the league to have these kind of players - Stevie, Kaka, (Andrea) Pirlo, (Frank) Lampard - and I hope more players can come here and improve the league even more.He was looking forward to travelling on Friday night with his new team-mates to take on Houston Dynamo, managed by former Burnley boss Owen Coyle. Robbie Keane greets Cole on his arrival at LA Galaxy I know they have a couple of big players up front and they like to be a bit direct and hit these players because they can hold it up and get the other players around them.We know what we have to do. Weve trained well over the last couple of days and we go into the game confident.Watch the Galaxy take on Houston live on Sky Sports 1 from midnight on Friday night.
