Jaguars’ offense starts fast

chadhenne AP

In a battle of two of the worst teams in the NFL, the Jaguars started off looking pretty good.

Jacksonville’s offense started fast, marching down the field against Houston’s defense and scoring a touchdown at the end of a 13-play, 80-yard drive.

Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne completed four of six passes for 23 yards, and also picked up a first down on a 14-yard run. The Jaguars’ offense isn’t exactly good with Henne at the helm, but it’s at least competent, which is more than can be said for the Jaguars’ offense when Blaine Gabbert was the quarterback.

Maurice Jones-Drew also showed more pop than he has for most of this season, rushing five times for 25 yards.

Now we’ll see if Case Keenum and the Texans’ offense can respond. If they can, this might be a more entertaining game than we’d expect from two of the league’s worst teams.

    We’re determined to hang onto that #1 pick!

    If only the Texans had a guy like Drew Stanton.

    Texans stink. First draft pick with a new coaching staff. Fail.

    Gus Bradley rules. Thanks from a Seahawk fan.

    Coach gus Bradley is all rah rah now, like Pete.
    Lol
    Glad to see its working. A 6-10 season for the jags would be a major success

    Jaguars must be spying on the Texans.

    Houston must be tanking to get the number 1 overall pick. How else can a team with as much talent on their roster be playing so poorly?!

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen that headline anywhere.

    I guess Jax must be spying on them too. Unless maybe Houston is a bad team, with bad coaching.

    Just look at Jacksonville f ck ng up their draft position.

    If your team sucks… you don’t start your tight end and/or quarterback…. and take the loss… and high draft slot.

    That way… you can trade that spot if there isn’t anyone worth picking.

    Remember guys, losing in September thru December is winning in May.

    Unless your top 10 pick is a total bust, then its also losing in May.

    Texans are the most disappointing team this year. At least the Falcons have injuries. Texans have just imploded.

  13. northshorejag says: Dec 5, 2013 9:22 PM

    Jags!’

    I liked Henne for the dolphins a few years back. He’s better than people think.

  15. jcmeyer10 says: Dec 5, 2013 9:39 PM

    browns: my lady was pissed when they chose Tannehil over Henne after watching that Hard Knocks.

  16. steelersaregodsteam says: Dec 5, 2013 9:40 PM

    How was this team good last year?

  17. thelionsrgreat says: Dec 5, 2013 9:41 PM

    Most boring game to date this year.

  18. doctorrustbelt says: Dec 5, 2013 9:41 PM

    Arian Foster – INJURED
    Owen Daniels = INJURED
    Brian Cushing = INJURED
    Danieal Manning = INJURED

    Texans didn’t just implode… they had injuries, too.

    Joseph was limited by his groin earlier in the season, too. You can see he is not All-Pro Joseph this year.

    Swearinger has the mouth of Deangelo Hall and the skills of Brandon Merriweather.

    @blacknole08 ,

    Lol comment of the night !

    Sorry Texans fans, since they came up with those stupid college lettermen jackets for one of the New England games last year they’ve pretty much played like a college team in most games.

    Texans need to dump about half their players and start over.

  21. roxtar10 says: Dec 5, 2013 10:06 PM

    Anyone with tickets to a remaining Texans game should be refunded by the organization. It’s clear they’ve packed it in and not even playing for pride at this point.
    What a joke.

  22. thefiesty1 says: Dec 5, 2013 10:08 PM

    And you point is…

  23. thommyberlin says: Dec 5, 2013 10:14 PM

    Houston Raiders? 10 penalties 115 yards….

  24. raiderfankirk says: Dec 5, 2013 10:21 PM

    Two teams that need a QB. This ugly football….trust me as a Raiders fan I know ugly football.

    The officials were all over the Texans like they had money on the outcome. Houston was completely buried with taunting calls, blocks in the back on kickoffs, pass interferences, defensive holding and pass interference calls. It was 14-0 and they had 6 penalties before the end of the first quarter.

    I cant wait for the playoffs so these officials just let the players play. They are way too comfortable making game altering calls nowadays.
