Texans Jump to 2-0 Start After 27-7 Win Over Jaguars

The Texans improved to 2-0 for the third consecutive season Sunday, as they took care of the Jaguars in Jacksonville winning easily 27-7.

The win was the fourth in a row against the AFC South rival, and they did it on a record setting day for Arian Foster.

The back set the Texans all-time rushing record, going for 110 yards on 28 carries with a touchdown. Fellow back Ben Tate had 74 yards on 12 carries with two scores.

Matt Schaub was 26-for-35 for 195 yards, but avoided any picks and was able to keep the teams offense in check all afternoon.

The Texans defense lowered the boom on the Jaguars offense, holding Maurice Jones-Drew to 60 yards on 12 carries with a touchdown on a reception.

Houston built up a 17-0 lead midway through the second quarter on a field goal, and touchdowns each by Foster and Tate.

Blaine Gabbert was just 7-for-19 for 53 yards and a touchdown. This after last week it appeared he had turned the corner in an OT loss to the Vikings.

Chad Henne played late for the Jags, going 2-for-2 for 23 yards.

The Texans improved to 2-0 for the third consecutive season by winning their fourth in a row against the AFC South rival Jaguars, who started 0-2 for the third time in the last five years.

Jacksonville, which has never had a winning record after dropping its first two games, was far from competitive in the latest meeting.

The Texans gained 242 yards in the first half while building a 17-0 lead, and on the day held the Jags to just 117 total yards of offense.
