Texans 1st drive (15 plays, 75 yards, 8:21) — On a second-and-8 from the Houston 27, Mills actually had room to run, but he went for the checkdown and threw it incomplete. Then, Houston had a delay of game on third-and-8 to make it third-and-13. The Texans weren’t able to overcome the yardage and committed their first three-and-out. However, the Jaguars are still a very bad football team and committed illegal use of hands to the face to keep Houston’s drive alive. The Texans picked up two third-down conversions in their own right to keep the chains moving. QB Davis Mills connects with WR Brandin Cooks for a 22-yard touchdown on third-and-1. Texans, 7-0

Jaguars 1st drive (9 plays, 79 yards, 4:57) — Jacksonville never faced a third down until third-and-10 from Houston’s 11-yard line, and they didn’t pick it up as RB James Robinson picked up seven yards. Interim coach Darrell Bevell feigned that he was going to go for it, but after a timeout, K Matthew Wright hit a 22-yard field goal. Texans, 7-3

KICKOFF, 1:47 — CB Tremon Smith goes right up the middle on the kickoff return and takes it all the way to the house for a 98-yard touchdown. Texans, 14-3

Jaguars 2nd drive () — The Jaguars managed 12 yards in three plays before the end of the quarter.
