Texans make Jags first road victim

JACKSONVILLE — The Texans actually had a nice road trip. No surprise it came in Jacksonville, where the Jaguars are winless.

Brock Osweiler threw two touchdown passes, Kareem Jackson returned an interception 42 yards for a score and Houston won its first road game this season.

The Texans scored on offense and defense, and set up a score with special teams, a complete effort that improved them to 3-0 against the AFC South. They won their fifth in a row against Jacksonville.

This one came despite Osweiler throwing for 99 yards total.

"We have to play the game the way we see it playing out," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said. "We don't worry about stats. I think everyone needs to understand that in the National Football League it's all about winning. It's about winning. Whatever it takes to win, that is what we try to do. Sometimes it doesn't work out, but six times this year it has worked out, and three times it hasn't. Hopefully, we can be on the positive side of the ledger."

The Jaguars lost their fourth straight and fell to 0-4 at home.
