Kareem Jackson scores on pick-six

Kareem Jackson high-stepped his way into the endzone after an early pick-six at Jacksonville.

Jackson picked off Blake Bortles' pass, intended for Jaguars wide receiver Allen Hurns, and returned it 43 yards for the score.

"He made a late throw and I was able to step in and make the play," Jackson said after the game.

Houston took an early 7-0 lead with 12:07 left in the first quarter. Houston has scored a defensive touchdown in four straight trips to Jacksonville.

"You love it," Brock Osweiler said. "Anytime you can get a TD whether on defense, offense or special teams, it's huge for your football team. Touchdowns are hard to come by in the National Football League.  When you can start 7-0 and you haven't even put your feet on the field yet, it's a great feeling."

Heading into Week 10, the Texans had just three interceptions on the season. Jackson's score was also the first defensive touchdown of the year, and the 13th of his career. The seven-year veteran cornerback is now tied with Dunta Robinson for the most career interceptions in Texans history. 

Just before kickoff, the Texans got set for their Week 10 contest at Jacksonville.
