Deshaun Watson to Darren Fells TD puts Texans up early

Deshaun Watson and the Texans put on a show during a second quarter touchdown drive.

The Houston quarterback tossed a 1-yard score to tight Darren Fells with 5:55 left in the first half, and after a Ka'imi Fairbairn extra point attempt was blocked, the Texans led Jacksonville, 9-0.

On the possession, the Texans marched 80 yards in 14 plays, and took 8:14 off the game clock.

Watson completed all four passes he threw for 34 yards on the drive. He also ran twice for a total of 14. The combo of Carlos Hyde, Duke Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins ran for 32 yards. Multiple times he was in trouble, but eluded sacks and found open receivers.

It was the sixth scoring catch of the year for Fells, which tied Owen Daniels (2012) and Joel Dreessen (2011) for the most by a tight end in a season in franchise history.

Watson also passed Andrew Luck (8,126) for the most passing yards in a quarterback's first 32 NFL games.

The Houston Texans are warmed up and ready to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in London for the ninth game of the 2019 NFL Season. The Texans pregame photos are presented by Gatorade.
