The New York Jets trail the Houston Texans, 23-14, after three quarters of play on Monday Night Football.

The New York Jets trail the Houston Texans after three quarters Monday night, 23-14.

The New York Jets were unable to move the ball on offense as they opened the second half with yet another three-and-out. The Texans had no such problem. Houston burned almost eight minutes off the clock as they mounted a 14-play, 70-yard drive, eventually settling for a 42-yard field goal to stretch the lead to 20-6.

On the resulting kickoff, Joe McKnight decided to bypass the Jets offense and score himself -- a 100-yard kickoff return touchdown to put the Jets down only one score, 20-14.

The Jets attempted an onside kick after the touchdown, but were unsuccessful. The Texans took advantage of the good field position, moving 42 yards in just over four minutes. However, they once again were forced to settle for a field goal.

Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez enters the fourth quarter of Monday's game going 10-of-20 for 159 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
