Texans fall 29-7 to Jaguars in Week 1

Posted Sep 10, 2017

The Texans fall in their Week 1 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Houston Texans fell 29-7 to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday in the team's 2017 regular season opener. The Texans struggled, committing four turnovers and giving up ten sacks to the Jaguars defense. The Texans loss broke a six-game winning streak against their AFC South opponent.

Tom Savage completed 7-of-13 passes for 62 yards before being replaced by Deshaun Watson to start the second half. Savage was sacked six times, including two that led to turnovers. Watson finished the game 12-of-23 for 102 yards, with one touchdown and one interception. DeAndre Hopkins, who scored the lone touchdown for the Texans, led the team with seven catches for 55 yards.

The Jaguars took 6-0 lead early in the second quarter, following two early field goal drives. Yannick Ngakoue’s two strip sacks on Tom Savage in the second quarter led to back-to-back touchdown drives for Jacksonville.

Leonard’s Fournette’s one-yard touchdown run, following the Texans first turnover, gave the Jaguars a 12-0 lead with 2:14 left in the second quarter. Jason Myers’ extra point attempt was wide right.

On the following drive, Dexter Fowler scored on a 53-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown to give the Jaguars a 19-0 lead at halftime.

Watson took over at quarterback for the Texans to start the third quarter. In his first NFL drive, Watson capped off a 14-play, 75-yard scoring drive with a four yard TD pass to Hopkins. The Texans trailed 19-7.

The Jaguars responded with a 1-yard touchdown pass from Bortles to Tommy Bohanon to extend their lead to 26-7.

The Texans ended two more drives with a turnover. Jacksonville missed a field goal on a strip sack that resulted in a fumble. Following an interception thrown by Watson, the Jaguars added a 38-yard field goal.

The Texans travel to Cincinnati to face the Bengals on Thursday Night Football in Week 2.
