The Houston Texans beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 37-21 in Week 1 to start off the David Culley era on the right track.

Houston’s defense flummoxed rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence with three interceptions and a sack. The No. 1 overall pick did complete 28 passes on 51 attempts for 332 yards and three touchdows.

After 12 games, the Texans and Jaguars meet again, and safety Eric Murray sees how the former Clemson Tiger has developed throughout the regular season.

“He seems like he’s moving through his progressions a lot quicker,” Murray told reporters Wednesday. “But most of the route concepts are kind of the same, kind of three-level concepts to keep the reads right in front of each other. But other than that, it’s been a long season. I think he knows what he’s good at and they know what he’s good at, so that’s mainly the difference.”

Although the Jaguars have changed coaches with firing Urban Meyer, they have not mixed up the offensive chain of command. Offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell stays at his post while also adding the tag of interim coach. Lawrence shouldn’t be affected on Sunday when the Texans and Jaguars complete their season series at TIAA Bank Field.
