The Houston Texans will continue to go with Case Keenum at quarterback, as coach Gary Kubiak announced the undrafted second-year player will get the start against Jacksonville Jaguars.

Keenum was benched in second half of Sunday’s 28-23 loss to the Oakland Raiders, turning the offense back over to previous starter Matt Schaub.

Schaub entered the game with the Texans losing 28-17. Schaub led to team to two field goals, going 12 for 23 for 155 yards and no touchdowns. He was seen arguing with receiver Andre Johnson on the sideline near the end of the game.

The Texans have lost eight straight games since when the season's first two contests.

"Matt's the same every day; he wants to play. It just would have been nice if we finished the deal yesterday." Kubiak said about Schaub's reaction to start Keenum.
