Houston Texans vs Jacksonville Jaguars 11/03/2019
The Texans are currently on an upswing. They shut down the Oakland Raiders during their previous matchup with a 27-24 scoreboard. Deshaun Watson proved his reliability by going 27/39 and 279 passing yards. To cap it off, he threw in 3 touchdowns with no interceptions. For the running department, Carlos Hyde led the way. Even though he was touchdown-less, he contributed 83 yards thanks to his 19 carries.
Deandre Hopkins caught the ball for an impressive 11 times, allowing the team to gain 109 yards. The Houston Texans looked to the rush tactic as they ran with the ball 32 times out of 74 plays. They gained a total of 399 yards as opposed to their opponents’ 378 yards. While it may seem like a close enough yardage gap on paper, in reality, the Texans had already pulled far ahead.
The Texans limited their opponents’ throw offensive to only a 60% completion rate. They still gave way to 23 rush attempts, however. With this recent showing, the Texans are still going strong, and they are among the best among the AFC South.

The Jaguars are entering this matchup with a win on their back. They trampled the Jets with a 29-15 record. Gardner Minshew II proved his reliability by going 22/34 with 279 passing yards. He chucked in 3 sweet touchdowns to cement his team’s lead. Leonard Fournette was in charge of the ground game. He ran 19 carries for a total of 76 yards gained, with a long run of 66 yards.
Chris Conley helped gain an additional 103 yards thanks to his 4 catches. The Jaguars were solidly running the ball for 34 out of 70 plays. Their tactics earned them a total of 389 yards as opposed to their opponents’ 167 yards. This huge discrepancy in yardage gained already signaled a lopsided game. The Jaguars took it easy on the defense, allowing their opponents to complete 70%. The opponent also managed to complete 21 running attacks.
While the Jaguars are progressively improving their ground game, they’ll need more than that to take out tougher teams. This upcoming match is a good opportunity for them to showcase their running prowess. Hopefully, they don’t forget to tighten up their defense as well.
