Watson has completed 13 of 20 passes for 169 yards and a touchdown, while running three times for a team-leading 35 yards. Brandin Cooks has two catches for 76 yards and a touchdown, a 57-yarder on the team’s first possession.

Duke Johnson replaced David Johnson, who is out with a concussion, and scored on a 1-yard touchdown with 27 seconds left in the half. It completed a 98-yard drive.

Jaguars quarterback Jake Luton had his highlight on his second career pass, finding DJ Chark for a 73-yard touchdown. The rest hasn’t been as good.
