Houston joins Atlanta at 5-0

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Arian Foster ran for 152 yards and a touchdown, and the Houston Texans stayed unbeaten by defeating the New York Jets for the first time in team history, 23-17.

     With a chance to lead the Jets on a winning drive, Mark Sanchez was intercepted by Kareem Jackson on a pass that tipped off the hands of Jeff Cumberland with 1:51 left and the 5-0 Texans joined the Atlanta Falcons as the NFL's only teams without a loss.

     The 2-3 Jets were heavy underdogs after coming off a 34-0 loss to San Francisco last week. But the Jets hung tough. Backup quarterback Tim Tebow got the crowd fired up at times throughout the game, including running for a first down on a fake punt, but had little impact otherwise.

     Houston also overcame a 100-yard kickoff return by Joe McKnight that cut the Jets' deficit to 20-14.

     The Jets played without starting cornerback Darelle Revis, who is out with a torn knee ligament, New York lost top receiver Santonio Holmes to a season-ending foot injury last week.
