Right Combination: Offense opens w/TD on 1st Drive


The Texans offense, just like their counterparts on defense, scored on the first possession Sunday against the Jaguars.

Brock Osweiler drilled tight end Ryan Griffin for a 1-yard touchdown strike, and Nick Novak's extra point gave the Texans a 14-7 lead.

The Traveling Texans fans showed up in full force for the matchup in Jacksonville with the Jaguars.

The Texans began the game on defense, and were staked to a 7-0 advantage after Kareem Jackson picked off Blake Bortles and returned the interception 45 yards for a score.

The Texans' first offensive series was 10 plays, and it went 75 yards. Houston was able to chew 4:55 off the game clock.

Lamar Miller broke loose for a 45 yard run on 2nd-and-6. He was stopped at the 1-yard line, and two plays later the Texans were in the end zone.

Miller had five carries for 56 yards on the possession, while Osweiler completed 3-of-4 passes for 19 yards.


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