Texans improve to 6-3 with first road win of the year
JACKSONVILLE, Fl. – The Houston Texans remained perfect in the AFC South on the season as they beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-21. It was the first road win of the season for the Texans, who had been averaging 7.3 points a game on the road until Sunday.
The Texans got on the board first when Kareem Jackson intercepted a pass from Blake Bortles and returned it 42 yards for the touchdown and they early 7-0 lead. The Jaguars would tie later in the quarter on a short TD pass to tight end Julius Thomas.
But the Texans used their tight ends on Sunday as well as Brock Osweiler threw two TD passes – one to Ryan Griffin, the other to Stephen Anderson. Osweiler threw for just 99 yards on the day, but they did record a season-high 181 rushing yards.
The Texans will look to keep the momentum going when they play the first Monday Night Football game outside of the United States when they face the Oakland Raiders in Mexico City, and that game will be carried right here on your CW39.
