It was a gaff that kicked open the door for Baltimore's first touchdown just three plays later.
"It's something I've got to live and learn with," Jones told The Associated Press. "It's a decision that I made. I've got to grow up and learn from it. It's a mistake I made with being a football player. Some people don't understand."
What should be understood is that Jones' mistake alone didnt bury the Texans, who lost 20-13. They had 56-plus minutes to make up for the miscue -- and came close -- but the series of poor decisions that followed kept this spirited team from pulling the upset.
