Texans roll again vs. futile Jaguars
JACKSONVILLE — All those boos last week seem silly now.
No sluggish start. No moments of concern.
Arian Foster ran for 110 yards and a touchdown and Ben Tate added 74 yards and two TDs as the Texans overwhelmed the Jaguars.
Houston improved to 2-0 for the third consecutive season — the only team in the league to hold that distinction.
This rout might have eased any concerns Houston fans had about last week's 30-10 victory against Miami, when the Texans struggled until converting three consecutive turnovers into touchdowns late in the second quarter.
"We were mad that we started slow last game so we came out here with a mission, a goal, to start fast," Texans defensive end J.J. Watt said. "Two 20-point wins the first two weeks? That's what you're supposed to do."
The Texans gained 242 yards in the first half to build a 17-0 lead. The Jaguars finished with 117 total yards, a franchise low.
