Jacksonville Jaguars vs Houston Texans 09/12/2021
The Jaguars won their last game against the Dallas Cowboys with a final score of 34-14. From the defensive end, the Jaguars have added new players and their new coach is all set to make a change. Trevor Lawrence is all set to wear the Jaguars uniform this season and is certainly the center of focus. James Robison and Carlos Hyde will play an important role while Marvin Jones Jr takes the wide receiver position. Defensive coordinator Joe Cullen is all set to turn around the defense and help the Jaguars recover from a terrible 1-15 record last season.

The Texans were ahead of the Jaguars last season with a 4-12 record. Houston started their preseason well with two successful games but lost against the Buccaneers last month with a 23-16 final score. Brandon Cooks and Will Fuller V are expected to be the primary targets for their quarterback. Houston has plenty of space to fill from the defensive end. JJ Watt is no more on their team and their linebacking squad will need to step up on their performance. Christian Kirksey is now part of the new roster for the Texans.
