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.
