This play by James Jones shows how tough things have been for the Oakland Raiders against the Houston Texans on Sunday.

Jones was able to pick up 26 yards on a catch late in the second quarter but ended up fumbling as two Texans defenders tried to end the play. Fortunately for the Raiders, the receiver was able to pick up the ball and try to pick up more yards. The only problem with the second part of the play is that he was unable to hold onto the football—again.

Houston was able to recover the second fumble inside of its own 5-yard line.

Here's how the NFL Network's Rich Eisen summed up the play:
