Arian Foster ran for 152 yards and a touchdown, and the Houston Texans beat the New York Jets, 23-17, in East Rutherford, N.J. on Monday night. Kareem Jackson intercepted Jets’ quarterback Mark Sanchez with 1:51 left to preserve the victory for Houston (5-0). The Texans and the Atlanta Falcons are the NFL’s only remaining unbeaten teams.

Trailing 20-7 with 4:51 left in the third quarter, New York (2-3) rallied with the help of a 100-yard kickoff return by Joe McKnight that trimmed Houston’s lead to 20-14. The teams traded field goals before the Jets’ final drive was cut short by Jackson’s interception of Sanchez.

Matt Schaub threw for 209 yards and a touchdown for Houston. Sanchez passed for 230 yards and a score for the Jets, but he also threw two interceptions. New York receiver Jeremy Kerley caught five passes for 94 yards. Jets’ backup quarterback Tim Tebow played sparingly, rushing for 19 yards on five carries and attempting just one pass.
