The Jaguars defense absolutely dominated the Texans offense as they tallied up ten sacks as a team. Calais Campbell led the team in sacks with four by himself. Dante Fowler Jr. also returned a fumble 53 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter. The defense also had four forced turnovers. Overall, this defense lived up to the expectations that were on them

Another player that made an impact was rookie running back Leonard Fournette. He became the first Jaguars rookie running back with 100 rushing yards in his debut. Fournette also saw the endzone in the second quarter on a one yard rush. With his debut, he shows the Jaguars that he is prepared to make an impact for the team.

The Texans just had bad day overall. Four players suffered concussions and they couldn’t get anything going on the offense except in the third quarter when Deshaun Watson took over and led the offense to their only touchdown of the game with a touchdown pass to DeAndre Hopkins.

With the Jaguars taking game one against the Texans, they will now focus on Week 2 where they will face the Tennessee Titans.
